Adoption Portfolio..How to-Coming Soon

Another adoption homestudy means it's time to put together another portfolio. The portfolio is viewed by birthparents as part of their decision in selecting people to parent their child....just a tiny bit nerve wracking.
Seven years ago I scrapped the whole album (without digital help) and then made color copies. It was time consuming and looking back, I'm not loving it. For the second time, I did attempt to do some digital pages, but also mixed in some pages from the original album.
This time I wanted to do something quick and easy. I have two kids now, it's much harder to get things done. I used Picasa and completed all the pages using the collage feature. I wanted a monochromatic look for the album, so I used the same 3 "papers" throughout. In total, there are about 12 pages, here are some from the album.

There has been some interest from the blogging world as to how to create these pages. Tune in at the end of the week for my attempt at a tutorial to create your own "scrapbook pages".
