For this layout I had to cut my pictures down to trim down the heads and excess black..I think my mom did pretty good at capturing this moment with her film camera and flash!
Another fun tip, I started with a white piece of cardstock, I topped it on the top with strips of paper. I initially just used my water colors to paint--but it was too bright. I decided to add my piece of transparency to mute the colors a bit--it turned out perfect; the words on it adding to the interest of the page.
