today's layout - edited, much better!

I love this board! Here's the new version, I'm sooooo much happier with it!!!

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

well, this is the first layout in ages that I've done that I don't really care for. I put this off for days. I had picked the paper with the hats, and knew I wanted to do something with two other papers but wasn't sure what. so this was the layout I did for quiet time today (I also have a digital page in progress too). anyhow, be honest, does this suck? I'm not one for doing pages over, so I don't know if I will or not. I haven't showed Andrew yet - if he really likes it, then I won't sweat it. I just am NOT a fan of this layout ...

(the pictures on the far right are from the party at his last day of school)

Gwen - these pages do NOT suck. I really like them. The only suggestion I can offer is to take a few of the pictures that you overlapped and mat them on red paper. I think if you take a few pics and do it that way your page will really pop.

On the first page, I would recommend the one at the top that overlaps and the one at the bottom that overlaps. On the second page I would do the one in the middle on the far right. Try it and see what you think.

Great job!

OR - on the second page do the picture of Andrew with the star glasses - if you want to keep the matted pictures on the confetti & grad hat paper.

I think it is good. I'm not great at paper, but they look really nice to me. I like the couble page tied together in the middle like that.

Andie, it's funny, Carole said the same thing about the red matting when we were chatting last night!

Appreciate the ideas, will try that today during quiet time. I intentionally didn't put the pages in the book hoping to get some ideas here. Wink

Will post the improved pages later this evening.

Oh Gwen, I really like it. I think the first one is nice too but the red matting makes it that much better.
