What can I add? - Two versions added post 17

Okay, I'm finally done editing Jack's cake smash pictures. Yes, he's 13 months tomorrow. I took the pictures about 5 weeks ago. I had a lot of color issues (the white background was looking gray, he was looking blue) and have edited photos from this set 4 times. I can't tell you the time I have put into it.

But I'm done. My goal was to make an 8x10 collage, and I did that. But I want to add something, like maybe a title, above his head. Too much empty space. I was thinking of maybe "Welcome to One" but that doesn't really seem to fit with the cake. "Party like you're one year old". Lol I just don't know.

Thoughts, ideas?

Gwen - the collage looks amazing!!!! I LOVE IT!!! How about you send me that crown in a few months? haha...

As for titles... just a couple of ideas (not my ideas, I stole them from the perfect title website)... will these work??? "A Royal Birthday"or "Make a wish"

All I can think of is "One is wonderful" but maybe that's too corny! Smile That crown and the pics turned out great!!!!

It looks great Gwen. I am no good with titles. I have to search all through google when I need something creative. . . either that or scraplift something.

Something that I would change though feel free to ignore if you disagree, is the order of the 3 small shots. I would put the pic of him w/o his crown on in the middle of the two with his crown on. maybe I'm too much of a symmetry freak.

I love it though, your editing is great. The whites are white and the colors are really vibrant (and I sound like a laundry detergent ad) and he is only blue where there is frosting :D.

Ooh, I vote for that one. I wish I was that good at titles.

What about putting Jack and maybe his birthday or 1 year old there?

I like what the other girls' suggested....esp. "One tastes so good", but I think I'd keep it blank. I can't even say why, but I really love it just as it is. Maybe if I saw the wording on it, I'd like it better, but I just really love it!

thanks girls! I played with some of the suggestions, and came up with these two versions. (and I'm totally overdue for bed, I sat down for a minute, read the replies and decided to just try a couple of versions before I head up for some shut eye).

oh, and Andrea, they're in chronological order. I hear ya on the hat, but I'm such a chronological freak sometimes. Wink

That collage is AWESOME, the pics are great! I love the title on the second one, the wording and the font are so cool!

I like them both.. but I'm leaning more towards the second one.... maybe because the font matches more of what smeared frosting would be...

Curious... do you come up with your own collage layouts or do you get your ideas from somewhere else?

Aw..... I like how they turned out. I agree, good luck choosing which one to use. They both have their merits.
