Pocket Life Sketch Friday with Tara

Hello, Friday how I have missed you! It's Tara here and time for your weekly PL sketch challenge. Join in the challenge and earn your chance to win some happy mail from Citrus Twist Kits (read all the way through)!

This week I have two sketches for you. I am smitten with July's PL Driftwood kit. It is filled with so many wonderful bits and bobs that I used just this kit for my spread:

I wanted to capture some memories from June 2012. It's so fun to go back in time and create flashback spreads. My boys really enjoy looking through photos and seeing where they were in their younger years.

Here are some close ups. I loved Paige Evans' Fancy Free patterned paper in the kit along with the amazing cut outs from Cocoa Vanilla. I used some roller stamps in my stash to add more fun words.

I couldn't get enough of the cut outs and this month's selection of journaling cards. They worked so well together to add a little finishing touch.

 This blue journaling card serves as my title card and month marker. I'm trying out adding more titles in as well as an easy way to see the transition month to month. I used the same roller stamp to add a bit of interest on the photo.

I need more of these exclusive acrylic words!!! I love adding a little more layering by adhering things to the outside of the pocket. It was a little tricky at first, I applied too much glue and then I put the glue on the wrong side! Third time was the charm for me :).

Here are your sketches:
