Pocket Pages with Flaps

This pocket page hasn't been embellished yet, but I thought I'd show you an easy way to add an extra picture to a pocket page. 

This is what the pocket page spread looks like.

If you look closer at the top, right corner, the picture is actually a flap you can lift to see another picture below. I adhered my flap right to the top of the pocket page protector, so you can still lift it.

Snow Moments - Pocket Pages

I loved this line from Bo Bunny. It's a great winter line. 

These are two different occasions, both on the same ski trail, but the pictures are taken about 7 years apart. Haha! Sometimes it's lucky to be so behind on your scrapbooking that you can scrapbook similar moments across time....

PS. I love this trail. It's one of my happy places. If you're a skiier and love Lake Louise, I'll even let you in on my secret.
