If you have Pages (from iWork) or an image editor that handles layers you can create custom pages as described in this tutorial: iP11 - Creating a Custom Page, with the Theme's Background for an iPhoto Book.

Thank you - works! When the photo is smaller, the white borders remain. If we make the entire page white, they blend in. But if we chose another color, we would like to make the lines the same color.
