ugh...LOVE the picture...HATE the page!

i don't like the frame color or the journaling. and of course Eli messed with it while it was open and flattened and saved the picture, so i can't change the elements. I have to re-do it. An suggestions??

I like the LO, I think the gray color of the frame is what gets me. I think if that had some color (maybe something from the book) to make it pop.

That really is a cute picture.

I like the LO too, but agree that it needs some color changes. I like the journaling like it is though, not sure what to change. I'm sure someone else will have some great ideas though. GL

how about something with a more primary colored theme? I think black and white photos need something around them to make them pop. Maybe pull in some of the same colors as are in the book.

Do you have a title for the page? Then maybe you could put the journaling as more of a subtitle.

Just random thoughts. Good luck!

Thanks everyone! I agree that the frame needs color....I think page/frame would be better with a color photo.

OK, off to re-do the page. I'll post it when i'm done

I agree that the frame needs color. Right now it blends right into the b&w picture.
I think that I would make the picture and frame a little bigger too so that it is more of the focal point.

I htink it's the frame as well - the color, and it kinda takes over the picture, which is so adorable. I love the ribbon wrapping around the frame, but I'm not sure if goes with this photo ...

Also, I don't know about the journalling on top of the ribbon - gives it less of a 3D look, iykwim. I might reverse the journalling so it goes along the left side and then the top, not the bottom, to make it fit better?

can't wait to see the new layout. Wink

I think you need a thinner frame too - the thickness takes away from Eli (love the picture though!)

ITA with all the above comments. Definitely go with bolder colors, make the frame smaller and a different color. But the one thing that really hit me, and I didn't read the above comments too carefully, so forgive me if this has already been stated, the ribbon is a great touch but it almost hides the journaling. So either withdraw the ribbon and make it a simpler statmenet or make it a more bold outlined choice for the journaling.
