2 new pages (c/c please)

Another couple done for Caleigh's NICU book! Woot!

And here's the one I posted for the "loving you" challenge. I'm really not very good with word art. Anyone wanna play with it? Wink I almost feel like the page is too simple, but don't know if more elements would take away from the picture.

ETA: I played with it some more. What do you think, is this one better?

loving you until 2 jpg

What program do you use? I'd love to play with the wordart for you. i like the simplicity of the first one. I think the wordart needs to be a little bit fancier.

ETA: i love the first one!! I also love the picture on the second page. so sweet!

ETA: ok here is my take on the wordart, not really a different layout, but i used a different font, color and shadow. Please don't feel bad if you don't like it. Smile

download here (it is a png file) the preview looks funky on the website, but i promise it's cute lol

oooh! Very nice Beth!!! in regards the second one.... i like the first one better... (in the last one with the birdie, my attention gets diverted to the paper and our feathery friend - so in the first one, the focus is on your little one)... just my opinion. Smile

I can use pngs or jpgs. But not photoshop files.

It would be awesome if you want to play around! I'd welcome anyone who wants to make a go of it! I think mine is just too plain and boring. :rolleyes:

That's what I was worried about. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I love them!! But I do agree that the first take of the second one is best. The bird does take some of the focus away from sweet Caleigh. The simplicity makes her the focus.

You've gotten great advice so far, so I won't go there. But they are both cute. I am loving all of your NICU pages..they are great!

They look great. I think I like your original on the 2nd one better than the new one. I think the journaling block detracts from the gorgeous picture. I love that your hand is in the picture so you can tell just how tiny she is.

The first one looks great. So much like you style, love it!

I really love that you s t r e t c h e d the title in the first layout! Clever! It really draws your eyes to the photos. And I agree with the other pp...the first of the second layout is my favorite. It's not too simple at all. It makes you want to look at that adorable picture more.

thanks LIz! I finally got on the right computer and had the time to download your wordart. I'm off to bed, but I'll try plugging it into my layout tomorrow. Thanks!
