There is no easy way to do that.

Do you have 1 record or is this 3 records?

If this is multiple records have you tried using the multiple columns in details?

Import an image of the form into a Page Header section.
Turn on the option to Underlay Following Sections
Use Preview mode to move and position your fields.
Works like a charm...  :o)
