I created this layout filled with patterned paper using lots and lots of Crate Paper. To make the photo strip I just imported the photos into Pages and resized them. I placed the strip a bit wonky on purpose.
Lots of height was added using chipboard and Helmar ZapDots. This allowed me to overlap my embellishments without looking flat.
