Here's a close up of just the layout. Because i knew i had enough photos to include a pocket page, i intentionally ordered an enlarged photo for the layout. i knew i would have plenty of pockets to include my journaling in so i could get away without including any on the layout. Instead there are some word stamps and stickers to help further tell the story.
Here's a close up of some of the embellishments i used on the layout. Using an enlarged photo meant there was plenty of space to include embellishments directly on the photo.
And these are some of the 3x4 cards from the pocket page. i created the background on the card in the middle by repeating a couple of word stamps over and over diagonally on some white cardstock. i then layered some patterned paper with one of the silver embellishments. The card on the left mimics the circles on the main layout. i placed it in the furthest pocket on the left to create a visual triangle across the layout and pocket page.
