When I create a layout, I like to, well, lay out all the photos, papers, and embellishments that I am going to use. In order to remember how I laid everything out when I go to actually attach the items to the page, I simply take a picture of the layout as it is laid out with my digital camera. Then, as I am attaching all the pieces, if I need to remember where something was placed or how far away from another item it was, I just view the layout on my digital camera and it is all there. You can even zoom in to see the exact details! A perfect layout every time!
