I'm working on a brochure and I have somehow lost the boarder that the rest of the pages include. I was told that I needed to create a new layer and "Send to back" but I don't see a "Send to back" option.  Then how to I make the top layer smaller so the back layer shows through for the boarder? I have attempted to upload a screenshot of what I'm working with but it doesn't like the URL that I'm putting in. 
Basically, I'm extremely unfamiliar with this editor and there's not much support within my company.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Why don't put directly image?

@Trinkerbell24  Welcome!   Is this what you are looking for?   I made two rough rectangles (two layers), one to simulate your border and the other smaller one than the other, to simulate your block of either image or text.  If you go to your Layers Panel and select your smaller layer, you should find the edges highlighted in blue on your canvas.   Use your Move Tool (black arrow) to touch any one of the four corner blue circles, and drag the rectangle either in or out to make that layer smaller or larger.   If the layer with the larger rectangle (the border) is on top of the layer with the smaller rectangle, highlight it, and go up to your Toolbar and choose one of your Arrange settings,  such as "Send to Back."   (If your icons on your toolbar do not show the text, you can go to VIEW>Customize Toolbar and then down at left side, bottom of the panel, choose  "Icons and Text.")  Does this help?

This worked perfectly!

Thank you so much, I've been trying to figure this out for two days!
