Make an Independence Day layout. 

Describing her layout, Patricia Roebuck says, "I wanted to create a dynamic and colorful background. Making my own sunburst mask helped me get the look I was going for. However, it did challenge me a little bit to find a way to include all four of the photos. Matting the photos in the dark wood-grain and keeping the white border around them helped them to stand out."
