Now that I have my basic set up I put my pictures on the page and start figuring out where I am going to want them. I had lots of picture but most of them were the same just different angles and such. So I pick my favorites and place them on the layout and if I still have too many pictures I will either crop them or remove them. I move my pictures around; arrange and rearrange them until I find something I like.

right side of layout
I had chosen which side was the left and right of my 2 page spread when I added the orange decorative cardstock. Some times I change my mind but this time I was sure.
