so are we ready for a second page??
Whatever your theme is I am sure you can make it fit this LO
again we will need a 6 x 4 landscape photoREQUIREMENTS
3 coordinating papers - I have used 2 plain and 1 patterned
paper punch - I have used a star
and lets start
Cut your background page to 8 x 8" square
Cut a second piece of paper into a 6.5 x 4.5" rectangle
Cut your third piece of paper into a 4.75 x 2.5" strip

Now get a felt pen I use a Sharpie and I like to use black mostly as it seem to make my pages 'pop' but any color will do - and then draw a wavy line around all 3 pieces - start at the corner and do not stop till you reach the next corner it will make it smoother - INK ALL EDGES IN BLACK

add your photo - note all the different angles - just adds interest BUT its fine if you prefer it all straight BOTH ways will work

Now this looks hard but it isn't HONEST - we are going to hand cut some letters for your title
The trick is to write them backwards on the reverse side of the paper - if in doubt get a thick marker pen and some thin copy/computer paper and write your title out - in CAPITAL LETTERS then flip the thin copy paper over and use this to copy when you write on your 'real' paper.
Use a pencil and make the letters around 1" or more high once you have the letter then draw round the letter - you need not be that neat trust me

they then need cutting out - as a tip DO NOT cut out any centres far to hard so cannot be doing with that - instead cut a 'centre' from the off cuts of your back group paper and stick into place again I inked all the edges hides all my terrible cutting!!

Now on ALL LO's there really SHOULD be some journalling to explain what was occurring - especially for folk in the future - I am REALLY bad at this as my writing is so scruffy - so I cheat
- like you would expect anything else!!
If I handwrite I HIDE it and leave a tag to pull out from under a photo or I use my computer.
When using my PC I often use A4 file paper as it already has the lines on - not that I use them I just like the look as if you are journalling on real note-paper IYSWIM
So type your journalling - I love most of the handwriting fonts that are around and cut into a thin strip

Position as shown - I drew round my hand cut title - to give it a sharper look add a couple of punched shapes and
