How To Make A Fun Summer Layout

"Come see how simple it is to make a fun summer layout. Make a faux frame of Dew Drop Gems along the edge of the main photo. You can create various looks by changing how close you space the Dew Drop Gems. Create embellishments by mimicking designs in the scrapbook paper which can serve to unify the layout by adding similar elements. After you plan the placement of the layout, take a photo of the arrangement. To avoid undue frustration it really helps to have the photo to refer to as you attach everything in place."
