Create a new 12x12" project.
Insert mat 1 and drag the mat to re-size it to be 12" high, this will be your background.
Cut a new rectangle shape from paper 4, size is 4"x10.5". When you are making the cut for the shape, rotate the rectangle to the right so it cuts on an angle. Place the paper on the right side of the page.
Cut a rectangle from paper 1, 7"x5". Place this rectangle in the center of the page on top of paper 4.
Insert 3 photos. The size may vary according to your photos, cut and re-size each photo to these measurements: Photo 1 (far left) 3.3"x2.2", Photo 2 (middle) 4.15"x5.5", Photo 3 (far right) 2.3"x3.1". Arrange the photos as seen in the example and add colorful photo mats to each picture.
Insert mat 4 and cut out a circle from the mat that is 3" round. Copy and past the circle and fill the color with white, re-size the circle to be slightly smaller than the green one. Then using the circle cutting tool cut a circle from the white leaving a small border, see the example. Group the white border and the green circle together and move the layer to be under the right side of the middle photo. Copy and paste the circle and change the color green to the color pink to match the other elements in the page. Move this circle to be under the left photo and re-size it to be about 2 inches round.
