|This is the first layout in a lifebook for my son. I decided to work his lifebook in an 8x8 size. I used the 12x12 "Life Story" paper and then used the trimmed borders to cover a series of cropped photos along the bottom. I have a set of calligraphy markers, one which has a color nearly the same as the title of the paper. So, I wrote his name in that color and then contrasted with the blue text to look more like the colors in the photo and the caption of one of the two vintage stickers I used. I tend to choose embellishments or photo mat colors that match the colors of the photo subject's clothing.
