Thought I'd post another (no pressure) way to get hand-drawn elements on your layouts. Let your child be the author and illustrator. For this ultra simple mini album I had my daughter write about her life and then we picked a photo to go along with each sentence. I scanned her writing and drawings into the computer, extracted the images then placed them on the background paper. Like I said, super simple but I'm so grateful to have her handwriting and art preserved!
