Beach Themed Sampler Measurements

I was asked for the measurements for the sampler I posted here.
The frame is from Ikea and cost around $15. The size is 20 1/2" x 20 1/2" The Opening is 11 3/4" x 11 3/4"

I glued two sheets of grid paper together and drew a 12" x 12" square. I knew I wanted to use High Tide, Magical Mermaid, Lilypad Lake & Sea of Texture so I laid the lighthouse, mermaid, octopus & crane out on the grid and drew in the boxes for each. I wanted the octopus in the center so I started the I gave it 4 1/4" square and worked out from there. Starting with the upper left scene as box #1 and the bottom right as box #9 the following sizes are what I drew on my grid paper.
#1- 4 1/4" x 2 1/2"
#2- 3 1/4" x 2 1/2"
#3- 3" x 5"
#4- 3 1/4" x 2 1/4"
#5- 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
#6- 3" x 1 3/4"
#7- 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
#8- 3 3/4" x 3 1/2"
#9- 3 3/4" c 3 1/2"

I light drew in pencil a line 1/2" in around my 12" x 12" Paper and started gluing my mats down. My scenes were stamped on cardstock that was 1/4" smaller then the mats.
