This fun layout is all about how much my kids love to fish with my Uncle Larry. They don’t get to go terribly often and they rarely catch very much, but they love being outside and learning to use the fishing poles. On this particular time, they were fishing in the little pond in our neighborhood (which doesn’t have very many fish). It was hilarious to see photos coming in with commentary from my uncle on how their fishing trip was progressing.
I used my Felicity Jane kit to create this layout and the subscriber printable to make the pocket! It was the perfect size for a tag with hidden journaling. I was inspired by this sketch that was introduced as a challenge at the Rediscover Your Stash Challenge:
I chose to off-set my circles instead of lining them up grid style and used one larger photo instead of three smaller ones. To create that same look, I added a pocket page card and a pocket on either side of the photo.
This layout was progressing beautifully until I made one major error, I tried to touch up the wood veneer word “adventure” that I’d colored with marker and smeared it onto my layout! I was a bit panicked at first, but then decided to just go with it and pretend it was intentional. I covered up a little bit with sequins, but left the rest as it is.
Some of the details I really love about this layout are the pink pom-pom trim (which was a new embellishment for me!) and these gorgeous gold sequins that came in my Felicity Jane kit. This pocket and tag add an interactive element to the page that I am particularly excited about.
Overall, this layout makes me very happy and I think it will look wonderful in my album. Even fishing layouts can be beautiful and pink!
