So I haven't found the perfect solution yet...hard to have a scrapbooking blog if you can't share 90% of your layouts! So for now I'll be sharing layouts with grayed out spots for the photo areas.
I created this layout for a book I'm designing of the last two years with my boys. This page has pictures of my older son's first six months...to show how much he changed.
(Credits at bottom of post)
I'm offering this template up to all of you to use as you wish. The PSD file is all layered so you can easily drop in your photos and use my layer styles if you wish! The background is my from my own Lakehouse collection...you get that included!...and the journaling circle has a nice paper texture so you can use it as-is if you wish.
If you use this template or any J. Conlon and Sons products or designs, add your layout to our flickr group...I'd love to see it!
