    I think the bottom frame should be a little darker to add a little contrast, Maybe leave the "Entrance Class 1926 in the frame, but move it, and use the rest as journaling across the bottom of the page.

      hmmm, not sure....maybe fade the flowers a bit to the background???

        I love this kind of thing. I wish SBM had a section just for everyone to add their opinions on how to improve a layout. That way, only the people wanting true criticism could get help with a layout! Great idea, Fiona!

        In case I go missing call Moonlightpearl, Granny, twpclerk or Smile! Then have them call Crops because we're probably together at the Yoville Races!

          Thanks for the advice....I have taken it all on board and this is the new page.....I think it rocks...(have to add the photo later as it is on my heritage hard drive and my daughter is loaning it at the moment)
          Kit used is Chiffon Rose by Deanne Gow_Smith (aka moonbeam) and I do believe that the word art on the background was from kbdesigns and created by our very own Jazz (if this isn't correct please advise)

              I think this one is calling for some ribbons somewhere, that is about it though, too much on this one would take away from the pictures. I like it as it is.

                All of these layouts are so nice, it is hard to criticise, but I know we are our own worst critic!

                Thanks for the comments on my layout so far. Don't know if I will get it reworked by the deadline, but I definitely want to try all the suggestions.

                Nanwu, I love the redesign you uploaded. You received good advice, but I still would like to see more of your father. Allow more empty space around his head inside the frame.

                ValerieElaine, that area in the top left would be perfect for a journal, a second photo, or an embellishment. For your second layout, I agree that you might want to change the color of the inner frame. Could you coordinate with the flower colors? If you find a "metal tag", you could add the text to the outer frame. I love the background and the photo. A ribbon and bow that wrap the photo might also look nice.

                Pickngrin, this is so lovely, don't know what to change. Maybe focus on only one picture in the lower right.

                Sacannon, I love the snowflakes theme. The only change I would suggest is to remove the frames and use a blending circle shape for each photo.

                      I agree with everyone else on this one, the green is to green, it should be more subdued. Other then that, it looks great.

                        I would enlarge the picture and make it more of a focus and then I would add some journaling in the extra space.

                          Too much yellow. Maybe change the background color??

                            The layout is lovely, but as you probably notice, I love big pictures on my layouts I like the focus on my pictures. first I would enlarge the first picture and make it the focus picture and then maybe overlap the second one a bit smaller. Soften the background slightly and also change the opacity on the other roses.

                              I would remove the frames, enlarge the fotoos and use a blur shape for the photoos to soften the edges and I would make the skates bigger too, so they tell the story better.
