  1. Place the dotted color block paper with the large solid block in the top right corner. Mat a 9 3/4”x8” photo on blue cardstock, trimming the left, top and bottom edges to 1/8” and trimming the right edge even with the photo. Glue the photo even with the top right edge of the page.
  2. Mat three smaller photos (about 2”x3”) on white cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8”. Glue the photos at varying angles and overlapping in the bottom right corner of the page.
  3. Punch out blue number monograms to represent the photo subjects’ ages. Glue the numbers down the left side of the page with a yellow “&” glued between. Accent each of the numbers with two yellow mini brads.
  4. Computer journal onto white cardstock. Mat the journaling on yellow cardstock and trim to 1/8”. Glue the journaling in the bottom left corner of the page. Fold a blue silk flower in half and place the flat edge even with the left edge of the journaling. Insert a yellow brad to hold the flower in place.

A tip from LeNae: A super-sized photo makes a big statement! While you can crop standard photos to smaller sizes, like I did along the bottom of this layout, what about enlarging photos? If you have a photo printer at home you can print your digital photos at a larger size, but pay attention to the resolution, making sure it's high enough the photos don't become fuzzy when enlarged. If you don't print your own photos, or if you're working with negatives rather than digital photos, simply take your memory card or negatives to your local photo processor to have them enlarged. It's worth it...just check out the impact a large, close up photo makes on this little boy layout!
