In the past I would've created a 2 page traditional spread with a bunch of smaller photos but the whole pocket page style of scrapbooking has totally changed up how I do things...and has made it much easier!
I used the Hello Darling classic kit for this page (and I will most likely use this kit for my pocket pages as well). This kit is packed with so many bits and pieces that it makes it so easy to embellish your pages!
I stuck pretty closely to the sketch. By the way, if you don't have a die cutting machine to make that scalloped edge you can easily create the same effect with a circle punch :)
