There was a tie in this week's Sketch of the Week (between a 12" x 12" two-page and 8" x 8" two-page layouts), so I'll post one of each. The first one is the 12" x 12" and probably looks pretty simple, but that's the point.
This two page layout will display at least eight pictures (wallet size). If you crop a bigger picture and use in the big strips, you can display even more. My vision for the large strips are for patterned paper with a simple adjective vertically along the far right edge describing the picture (joy, smile, hope, courage, fun, summer, etc.) - the adjectives are your journaling.
