So this is the second of three double page layouts in the Penelope Workshops You Way guide. I went a bit more off-road in making this layout, but still generally followed the guide.
I changed the sizing on a couple of the photos, and tilted the pocket card that we are using for the title. I also added dovetail ends to the central stripe.
I also decided that I did not want that center blue gutter between the two pages, so I added some washi tape detailing along the far edges of each page to allow me to have the blue striped paper flush along the center break of the layout.
Here's the clean and simple original layout from CTMH. I love how easy it was to make this layout more my style without really changing much about the original design.
