The following is my photo book layout:
To come up with this lay out I picked out the photos I wanted to include. I then decided on a sold dark blue background. From there I decided to make one page a full photo and have one taking up the bottom of one page. Then with the space left I resized my photos and made sure to have room to include my paragraph. I also included two black lines on each page to unify the design of the page lay out.
