1. I mostly kept the photo and paper orientation. I wanted to fit one more photo, so I adjusted, and I honestly didn't really measure the patterned paper strips. I picked the paper I wanted and cut it so it would all fit in various sizes.
2. I have all boys, so I knew I wouldn't use the flower accent or butterflies, so I clustered a bunch of themed embellishments instead.
3. I always cluster in a visual triangle--I am a slave to the visual triangle!--so I added a cluster of accents to the lower left.

I followed the general sketch but changed the picture sizes and placements to fit what I had. Because of this I also used different sizes of strips along with a photo across the bottom to fill in the space.
I used pre-made flowers but mixed them up and added other elements to them. I also added a rub-on stem.
For the embellishments, I used butterflies and other gardening tools.
Because I wanted to use a longer title, I moved my journaling further over onto the 2nd page.
The papers I used came with word strips but only 1 of each so I couldn't do a matching border across but I liked the sentiments on them. So, I just went with it and used them together anyway, even though they were different colors.
