Layout Suggestions

Trace characters from a coloring book to use as part of a scrapbook page.

Instead of using decorative scissors, a straight edge or circle cutter, try just ripping the paper for an unpredictable effect.

Add receipts, ticket stubs, pieces of clothing, badges, brochures, and maps relevant to a page. Just be sure if it's not acid free, it doesn't touch the photographs.

Take some photos in black in white for greater contrast and a dramatic effect.

Take extra pictures in case some don't turn out.

All pictures have value. If the smile isn't there, maybe something can be done with the background. If the body isn't in the right pose, just use the head.
