I decided on flowers as my theme since I have tons of flower pictures I've taken over the years. My idea is to make a pocket featuring the letter of the alphabet (in the prescribed 3x3" format) and then tuck my photos of flowers starting with that letter inside the pocket. The lettering in the background is computer generated and is a list of flowers beginning with the letter drawn. I did a ton of research trying to find as many for each letter as I could. (for example, the background text for the A is agapanthus, anthurium, aster, astilbe, acacia, alstromeria, acanthus, amaranthus, anemone, allium, amaryllis. I won't have photos of all those, but of more than one!

Now that I've settled on a plan, I'm off and running - I've made a list of the letters I don't have a flower to go with and so now I'll be on the hunt as we go on vacation next week. I need to fill in those holes!
They'll look something like this .....
