I liked the Galaxy layouts, so with a group of both portrait and landscape photos, from the same theme, I experimented with a number of different designs until I came up with one that was 'just right' (for me)! I liked the combination of ovals and rectangles together, and was happy that there wasn't an over-abundance of blank page showing, once I had finished the layout. I know I need more practice in the 'cutting' department, but am more than happy with my results.
If you are looking for a template to use with ovals, I would recommend Fan-tasy over this one. I have struggled to find the right grouping of photos that work with this template for me. In part it is because I have a lot of close up photos and it seems like there is too much blank space around the edges. I'm not skilled in line drawing or chalking so I never know what to do with the emptiness. It's a fine template but definitely not one of my core templates.
