Oh so romantic Quebec!

This past week I had printed off a few photos at Costco with the intention of actually scrapbooking them, rather than be satisfied with only digital copies of the pictures, and some digital layouts. And I really wanted to scrapbook our last visit to Quebec with my husband's father. He took some really nice photographs of us, which we rarely get, and it was high time to have something of the two of us on paper.

I really like this photograph of the two of us, ready to head out on another day, our last in Quebec, just inside the walls. There were tons of potted flowers hanging from the walls, and old lamps and buildings. It just oozes romance in Quebec. Hence the title of the page.

I used the Song Bird collection from Prima, primarily because it's so soft and romantic, and I happened to stock up on it when it was released. I love the colour scheme and the delicate patterns.

 The only thing that I'm not thrilled with is that Costco doesn't print small prints. The smallest print size is 4X6 inches. That's okay, but I have to consider how I'm going to crop the photo afterwards. So I printed this one off my inkjet printer at home instead.

I'd really like to work with some Instagram photos and some of the cute sizes, like 3X3 inches, with a small polaroid-like frame. I'm on the hunt for an online company that does it.

The bottom cluster. I had to use a bit of pink!

Do you scrapbook romantic pictures? Do you frame them, or just keep them in an album? And if you know of an online print company that prints odd-sized photos and ships to Canada, I'd really love to hear about them.

Have an amazing Sunday and I hope you all have a great week ahead of you!
