This is how I did the page for the year my Mother, Edith was born. I printed a scan copy of the youngest picture photo I have of her. I used colored card stock and added a couple of cute things in the plain corners. I did a punch design on the top and bottom borders and placed some color paper behind it.
I like it!
For my parent's wedding day I used
paper with a design. Again I printed a copy of a scan photo I had. I had a hard time deciding what color paper to use.
I did these two pages this way since I didn't want to totally rearrange the completed pages .
