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.
This is a fabulous challenge idea Fiona!
