So this is a good layout to try if you are a beginner.
Start with a 12x12 background cardstock.
Take a 2nd peice and use decorative scissors to cut about a quarter inch off all the way around and ink the edges. Matt onto the 12x12 card. Mount two photos then mount again. Add a decorative border at the bottom. Add flowers, dragonflies, tags, die cut leaves, pearls and gems. Add a doily under the photos and a title. (I love purple and green together).
Et voila - done.
