Can you take a look at this LO?

I think I have been staring at this page too long. I like the general look of it, but I feel something is missing. I am trying to keep it simple but I feel like it looks incomplete. It's hard to tell. Do you have any suggestions on what I might do to it further? Thanks so much!

A title perhaps? Smile and a couple embellishments on the colored rectangles Smile

I like it but I'm with you, I feel like something is missing. I think maybe there should be some text or an embellishment in one of the colored blocks. I don't know. But it's simple and I do like it like that. Smile Or maybe add a small photo above the polar bear? That one blank space says it needs something to me. Wink

Could you add some journalling which animals the boys liked?

A title would be good, and maybe try adding another 'block' of paper to the left of the photo where you're giving a kiss to make it more a complete square, see what that looks like? Also, try moving the Zoo name up underneath the porupine picture (is that a porcupine?) to keep everything all together?

I love blocking and you did really good here. The simplicity is what makes this page really nice. Personally, I wouldn't square it up, because I kindof like the different dimensions. But I don't know, maybe you could put one more color block or embellishment?

I think you should journal or put something in the left blank space, but everything else is perfect. It is a fabulous page!

How about some simple thin, black frames around your pictures? I think a title would help it out as well.

Good luck! I totally understand looking at something too long. I do it all the time! Wink

Maybe just some light embellishments.....something like scrolling. (KWIM?)

I love it, but you're right. something is missing. I would try a title and maybe a little bit of journaling, but it's a great page overall.

I would add a title and a simple frame to the 2 pics with people in them.

I really like this look though. Great job so far.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. You guys have awesome ideas!
I tried out a bunch of different stuff but ended up with this at the end. I feel like it flows well now. And I am ready to move on to another one Wink
Thanks again!!
