Duck or no duck?

Well, after too much multitasking while working on this layout, it's just about done. But I am in a quandary. The pictures are all b&w, the only color is the blue I've used on the page (it's actually a cool handmade paper with silver sparkly bits in it). So, do I use the duck or no duck on the right hand side? I don't know if it's too distracting. If I don't use the duck, should I put another blue strip on that side?

TIA

I like the duck!

Do you have any more of the paper? One idea is to make photo corner shapes and put one in each of the four page corners. It's almost like I want just a bit more of that blue somehow, kwim?

Cute kiddos and nice LO! I have so much admiration for the number of LOs you complete and post! Inspiring Biggrin

I have a tiny bit more of the paper, I kinda like the photo corner idea. Wink but since it's almost midnight, I should get to bed. tomorrow is yet another busy day (aren't they all?)

I actually like it better without the duck. The subtle b&w photos with the soft blue seem fine by themselves. Smile But either way is cute! That page turned out really well.

I think I like it better without the duck. I think the duck draws your eye away from the pictures. A bit more of the blue paper would be good though. Neat layout!

I like it either way, but prefer it without it. I agree with Charys. Cute LO. I need to do a bath one.

well, I accidentally cut the duck when I was grabbing scraps to make the photo corners. I didn't look on the other side of the scrap before cutting, and it was the duck square. Guess that's a sign right there. Lol I'll have to take a picture with the photo corners later on.
