12×12 digital page of our visit to Gettysburg National Military Park last Sunday. The background is one of my photos – I simply enlarged it and lowered the opacity.

Supplies: Uncluttered Collage Vol. 2 template by TaylorMade Designs; fonts: Hannibal Lecter, Century Gothic, and Perpetua.

    Great layout! Love the background idea.

    When you create digi layouts do you print them to have a hard copy or just save to the computer? Just curious.

    beautiful, the lo really captures the significance of Gettysburg.
    (ever watch the film 'Remember the Titans'...I just love Denzel's speech about Gettysburg)

    would love to learn what you did for the background. I've been wanting to take dd's wedding cake pic to make a background pp.
    Tried the transfer ink spray, and just made a mess.

    WOW! that is truly incredible. I just love it! It makes me want to try digi. I just don't have patience and the know how.

    Oh - I just love this design - the background is just wonderful and the smaller photos in a line like that look terrific!
