How about a Father's Day layout? I created this one in steps so that you can see how I create...
This was my basic layout - this has a title, pictures, and with the addition of some
journaling it would make a complete layout.
This layout would be an intermediate layout - I took my basic layout
and added in some pieces to add color, layers, and different shapes to add interest.
This layout has visual triangles added in to create an even better layout.
My final layout adds in some sparkle, a few fussy cut frilly items and my journaling plus a better title. All of my layouts begin with my "photo block" and then I add interest a little at a time.
