Step #1: Pulled some kraft cardstock and patterned paper based on the colors in the photos. Decided on photo placement, jotted some journaling ideas.
First layer includes patterned paper cut in basic shapes, one border punch and the photo matted on white card stock and vellum, given a slight tilt. (sorry for the dark photo; basement remodel is messing with my lighting)
Placed a simple title below the photo. The small green letter stickers are from Dear Lizzy's release last year, still a good fit with her newest collection. The white Thickers provide a contrasting font and dimension. That was easy!
Step #4: Finished embellishing this block with addition patterned paper, chipboard and flair. Loving flair these days. Pre-made embellishments are a big time saver.

Sometimes a fast and easy layout just does the trick. The key is to get the photo, title and journaling down without over-thinking, play with paper and pre-made embellishments just a bit and call it a day. How do you whip up a page and keep it simple?
