Variation #1 - The biggest change I made for this layout is the pictures. All of the photos that I wanted to use were vertical 4 x 6" photos instead of the suggested horizontal 6 x 4" photos.
On the left page I had to make sure that I didn't lose the space for the title so I lowered the picture. I also added a photo mat to help that photo stand out. Because the width of the photo is the same as the strip behind it (4") it looked a little odd and the picture was getting a little lost. The mat was an easy solution.
On the right page I didn't need to do much since the two 4 x 6" photos filled the space of the photos on the sketch very closely. There is a slight difference in both the height (a 1" difference) and width (a 2" difference) but it isn't enough to need to adjust anything to fit the differences.
Variation #2 - I switched the title/embellishment up a little. I moved the embellishment (the hearts on the sketch) to the left of the title (the paws). The banner came down low enough on the top right side near the picture that I didn't want to cover it up with an embellishment.
Variation #3 - I pretty much followed the same banner as on the sketch but I added in a few dog bone clips to fit the theme of my layout. I also used dog paws in place of the hearts on the sketch.
