FIVE STEPS TO THE PERFECT LAYOUT
Step 1 - The Focal Point
Choose photo/photos, matt them in co-ordinating cardstock so that they stand out on your page.
Step 2 - The Background
Choose the background cardstock/ or pretty papers to co-ordinate with matted photo, choose all matching embellishments etc.
Step 3 - The Border
Always try to use a border to bring the page together.
Step 4 - The Embellishments
The best part, time to decorate with flowers, butterflies, leaves etc.
Step 5 - The Title and Journaling
By putting a title on the layout, you give meaning to the page.
The Journaling, on the page, or hidden, lets everyone know what is going on and gives you the chance to add your thoughts/ memories.

THATS ALL FOR NOW
SEE YOU AGAIN ON THE 14th January
