1. Plan your design by turning on the grid view and using boxes to place your photos
2. Lay your photo over the desired box and group together (ctrl+g). Repeat for each photograph.

3. Choose a colour scheme. If necessary, you can adjust the colour of a background to match your scheme.

Select the background layer and go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Color Variations.

Adjust the settings until you create the desired color.

4. Add a strip of paper behind the photos and write your title on it.
5. Use the custom shape tool to add a paw print and group a patterned paper of your choice with the shape.
6. Draw a heart, fill in, and use ctrl+g to add a piece of paper to the layer.
7. Add a photo corner and layer with a tag. Add the date.
8. Write the journaling. Adjust the leading to fit the allotted space.
9. Use drop shadows to create depth.
