[NTG-context] overlay page background missing

Hello all,

I am trying to put together a wedding book.  I would like a nice
watermark behind the text on each page.  Left page containing the word
'together', and right page containing the word 'forever'.  I can get
this done with an overlay, but it is always centered in the page.  So
after reading some threads about layers in overlays I thought this
might work.  Putting a layer into an overlay does give me the ability
to positiong the words, but I can no longer get them to show up on all
of the pages.  Am I doing this in a resonable way?  Why did the
setupbackgrounds stop working when I put the layer into the overlay?

Much thanks,
