    OMG! first try? Took me days and still cant figure it out.
    Thank you very much. Now I'm going to figure how to input the images in these.
    This is a lot harder than I thought.

    What program are you using to try and do this?

    Probably the easiest way would be to turn the insides of the circles transparent then put the images behind it. If you're using Photoshop Elements (PSE) you could also clip each image in to each circle but each circle would have to be on it's own layer. If you are useing PSE need help post here and I'll see if I can talk you through it.

    Yes, I use Photoshop Elements 10. I got it 2 weeks ago and no clue what to do with it. I'm totally stuck! All I was able to do is open the template. I tried to play around but nothing so far. :confused3
    How do I make the circles transparent?

    Open the file.
    Add another layer.
    Move the template forward to be the front layer.
    On the template layer, use the magic wand tool and select inside the circles and delete.
    Now find pictur you want to use and put inbwpetween the back (blank) layer and the layer that now is like Swiss cheese and move and resize to your liking.

    Click on the Magic Eraser in the tool bar then click in the area you want transparent. The Magic Eraser may be "under" the regular Eraser. Just right click on the regular eraser and choose the one with the star burst on it.

    Note: you may have to make sure the layer you have the template on is not the background layer. If it is right click on the layer in the layers palette and chose Make Layer from background.

    As you get in to PSE you'll find there's often more than one way to accomplish a task. In this case both work equally well but in some cases one way may work better for you or for the project you're doing.

    If you haven't found it yet I'd suggest checking out www.elementsvillage.com. It's a great community of PSE users that are more than willing to help out new users. They tend to focus more on the photography end of things as opposed to the graphics but they'll do they do know PSE well and will do their best to help out.

    Not a template, but here's a single cap image that you can copy and paste into a Word document (and resize) and make your own template...
