Rooms of Privilege Layout

Still plugging away at the William III rooms at Hampton Court, so here is another layout featuring pictures from William's Privy Chamber and withdrawing room. FYI: a privy chamber is not a fancy name for a bathroom, it's actually a room that only certain of the king's courtiers and statesmen were privileged to enter and be privy to discussions of state, thus the name. The withdrawing room, a chamber where the king could withdraw to discuss private or secret matters, was even more exclusive. To scrapbook these rooms, I create a traditional layout and added a pocket page, complete with journaling box, to show off additional photos.
For my journaling card, I used a Sketch from Sketches in Time PL Style and added a tag to tie it in with the main page:
And here are the other pictures from the pocket page:
