    OK here is mine, it is probably the least favorite of mine. I think it is probably because I am not the frilly type and it is a little more plain than what I usually do (I knew I would end up critiquing myself) . Not sure though, help....

    I really like it, but how about some soft word art as an overlay for the paper. Maybe different sayings typed in different but elegant fonts?

    I agree with Fiona, just a shade lighter green or maybe a beige or something. I like it though! And I love her facial expression.

    I agree with Fiona, maybe even a little more "grayer" green, or two layers of different color greens, making the center color smaller so the second color would show through the "holes" in the blue border.

    i'd personally make the journal booklet much larger taking over most of the page then adding the photo frame & photo onto the blank space on the first booklet page and drop the rose down onto the bottom righthand corner

    I agree here too.

    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.

    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)
