need help please (digi page)

Here's my latest version. I want to use black photo prongs on the picture, but I can't find any black ones in the kits I have. I've been looking for a while. Ugh. Anyhow, it's after midnight, and I need to go to bed. Just thought I'd share this and see what your thoughts were.

The quote is from the love quotes from little kids (I'm sure you've seen it via email, I have gotten it more times than I can count).

------------------------------

This picture deserves a page. But I'm not happy with the one I came up with. (Andrew HATES the title, but I'm not sure what else to call it). Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice?

I suck at one picture pages ....

How about "Sisters are gross!" or "Mom, she's doing it again!"

I think it's a nice clean layout, I'd just add some drop shadows to give it dimension.

lol, that's hilarious!! I like the layout, too, but maybe just add some more elements to "fill in." Like a frame around the picture and some ribbons or something? Otherwise, it's good!

I should have given more info about the picture. Lol it's not his sister, it's the sister of a friend of his who really just adores him. everytime we get together, she can't wait to hang out with my Andrew (who rarely gives her the time of day).

I did add the shadows to the paperclips, but forgot to add it to the letters. I'm going to play with it some more after the kids go to bed, I think I'm going to change the paper.

That is a great page. I like the colors and layout. I'm not good with titles.

I personally think the title is perfect! I love it! I think it says it all! I agree, maybe more embellisments or a frame. I don't know, I suck at one page pics as well.

Love the picture Gwen.

Maybe keep the title but change the "girl" from the circles to something else. I like the word "cooties" in circles because it reminds me of that cooties game. Maybe make "girl" kind of scripted above it.

I think it looks wonderful though! You're really doing great at digital!

Oh - maybe move the paperclip at the to top to the top, left side instead so it doesn't compete with the titles.

Drop shadows on elements and photo would be good too for dimension.

Maybe Andrew should come up with the title Wink I like it! I think you should change the alphas to something bolder.

funny, I did ask Andrew for ideas! He said "girls are cute". I told him that his expression doesn't match that title. Lol Funny kid. He really hates the cooties title, said he doesn't like the word. But he was a cranky kid today too.

I'm going to play with the alphabet too. Used the letters that were in the kit. But I like Andie's idea of a more girlish font for the word "girl"

Hahahah! I love the remake. I'd still put a shadow behind the photo though just to make it pop!

Are you working in photoshop? If you are - you can change the color of your embellishments in there. If not - if you want to e-mail me the file, I can change the color for you, and send it back... PM me and let me know...

ETA: Whoops - I didn't get through all the posts when I posted this - I see you already got the black prongs...

How about something simple like " Ewww! Girls!" I think something to long or detailed will take away from the picture, and that pictures speaks a thousand words all by itself!

Not to hijack your post but do you use both digi and old school layouts in your books??

Charlotte, I only have paper in my books now. I'm working on one more digital layout, then I will have five to have printed. I plan on putting them in the same books at the others, to keep it chronological. When I see how that looks, I will decide whether or not to continue adding digital pages. I only started digital about a month ago.

Sarah - actually, the prongs aren't quite black. I don't have photoshop. I'd love to have black prongs and eyelets. Can I email you one of each to convert? That would be so awesome of you! If that's cool, please PM me your email address. Wink
