I did this layout for one of my son's friends, for his 21st Birthday, I searched through all the photos I had of him taken at various places and chose the photos I liked best. Then using pieces of paper as templates, I juggled them around on a 12 x 12 sheet of paper till I was happy with the layout, then cut the photos down to the size of the templates. When all this was done, I found a 12 x 12 piece of paper out my collection to complement the photos, matted the photos onto plain card and stuck them down.
I decided to leave 3 of the 6 boxes blank at the bottom left, in case the mum wants to give me some photos of him when he was younger, I will be able to add them. (did add some bowling stickers, as it looked a little plain).
I then went through my embellishments to see what I could add, I remembered that the young lad in question loves balloons and bowling, so added them, a 3d 'friends' sticker on the prom photo and because of it being a 21st present, added a little wooded key, which I bought last year from here .
I then placed it in a boxed 12 x 12 frame bought from The Range, adding some confetti at the bottom.
(I've pixellated the name of the young lad, if you wondered why you couldn't read his name).
