Lots of pictures and mementos--save those receipts and ticket stubs!
This album contains pictures, receipts, and more. I don't like over-crowed pages and try to keep the maximum pictures per page at 4. Most pictures have a mat, and all pictures are in photo corners. Photo-safe paper, tape, and embellishments are a must. I look at the pictures for each page and find one dominant color for the background paper, then find one or two "helping" colors for the mats and embellishments.
