Travel the world - redone

As you know I scrap a few blank layouts for my guys every month then I came across the boarding passes for my oldest and wanted to add them to this layout.  It was made with my November 2013 Counterfeit Kit  and the title was Travel - the world you can read that post here.

This is what the original pages looked like.

It is a two page layout and I thought he could use it for some of the many pictures he has taken on his trips.

That was before I came across a few of his boarding passes from around the world.  So I took the sides of the layouts apart where the map paper is showing, cut the bottom part and attached my pocket, then put it back together and added a piece of white cardstock to the back to cover up my "seams".

 For the pocket I used a piece of packaging that the rub ons, embellishments, or stickers come in (yes I keep them and have it in a file folder), cut the top down to the size I needed and covered it all up. I then added the boarding passes to each side.

I kept the boarding passes in the pocket while I put it all back together to allow for the bulk. I added a few of the pictures from the Maine Troop Greeters as this period covers from 2008 to  2012
Normally I would have just given him the blank pages and did another one with this boarding passes and pictures but I do not have any of that paper.  It a good  - I used it up and sent it on it's way and bad thing  - I decided I wanted to do something different. 
Thanks for stopping by.

A clever bit of surgery :-D
Lovely DLO, I'm sure he'll be pleased.

You did a fantastic job including them after the layout was done :)

I love the idea of doing the blank pages every month, and the map background looks brilliant. Also an excellent example of reconstructive surgery on a scrap page! I think one of the best things about scrapping is that it gives you a way to keep all the memorabilia like this. :o)

Great pages, I've never done a layout without a photo in mind - not sure if I could tbh!

Isn't it fun to fiddle with stuff we've already worked on. I like the idea of pre-making pages, and you've shown us how we need not be afraid to tweak them later. Well scrapped!

Great to get a foundation set and then alter it to suit your needs. Nicely done.
