Designer Notes: My idea was to make this layout look like a worn family scrapbook or photo album. Seeing as this was an annual feature purely dealing with reader submitted photographs, i wanted to make it look fun and inviting. I used a parchment paper background and an image border with frayed edges, to simulate those wacky scissor cuts that people do now. End result, i’m happy with.
