Don't know why but I think I hate it.

After two hours and elements deciding to go awhol on me. I think I actually dislike this layout. It seems I had invisible pixels selected and it wouldn't let me do any transformations. I can't explain it but it went glitchy on me and I couldn't rotate or shrink anymore so I just saved it. It's not horrid, but it's not something I'm in love with either kwim? I may just redo it even though it's against my scrapbooking code of ethics. "You win some you lose some, don't waste your time redoing some".

Well here it is. I just can't figure out what I hate about it.

I like it. I know how sometimes you just can't figure out what you don't like about it. It drives me insane! I think you did a great job. The title says it all!

Oh forgot to add who's crap I used LOL. Erm..I mean scrap I used...

Leah Riordan Designs 2996 of o'scraps : papers triple frame and embelishments.
Victoria Stegall of o'scraps: Rubber band frame

Font, standard font from Elements.

Maybe it's just too sloppy for me? Maybe I'm not a brown person? I know w/ the curves I added it was hard to get the ribbon close to the edges and the ribbon on the tag is just not hugging it right. Grrr. I'm such a perfectionist.

I think it's really cute. your drop shadows are a little "extreme", I would shorten them so they don't look like they're so high off the paper. maybe that's what bugs you about the page, the visual disproportion.

No. I like high shadows. It's something about the actual layout/color scheme.

Maybe try making the pinks (the top and the tag) oranges instead? I like it, though. It's unique!
