I wanted to show you the March pocket pal page I did, and I even remembered to take a picture of what's included in the back.
This theme was Spring, so I used spring flowers, kites, and butterflies. The back side you can see some of the things that were included in the pockets. Buttons, ribbon, Bling, paper kites, paper flowers, some word stickers and some pop dots. My pal's name started with a "S" so I included a "S" tag. Traditionally these are done between pen pals, where you write a letter or ask questions of you pal, and since it's not specifically for scrapbookers, people include other things like tea, candy, gum, stamps other small things. Since I'm playing along with a scrapbooking group, much of what goes into the pockets is scrapbooking related.
I've got a new pal to exchange with for April and May. I'm late already, ha … but so is she, so I'll probably knock out both months when scrapping this weekend. I've already bought some items to put in the pockets, and I have the paper I want to use, so it's just the creative part left to go.
