Hi everyone. This is a layout that I have been working on that I am really unhappy with. I spent hours yesterday just looking at it sadly with no idea what to do to fix it. I aked my DH for help, but all he came up with was to add the black border. I don't know if that helped or just made it worse...

I wanted to post this for the critique this weekend, but I am going to be out of town, so I was hoping people would offer suggestions and ideas on it here or in the gallery.


(I have never added a gallery link before, so I hope this works...)

Looks good to me... Fun background paper for theme... the Fair title is hard to me to find maybe another color, or reverse with the other corner photo. small details you did great!
Have a Great Day!!!

I agree...it's a super layout! It is a little hard to see the title. Maybe try changing the color of it or, lowering the opacity of the background so it is not quilte so bold. TFS

Hey! Looks like you have already had some good feedback. I would agree with the others about the title. It really gets lost. I love your LO though. Great job!!

That's too bad you will be gone for the critique. The designers here are great, and offer an amazing amount of creative criticism and support. I would reccomend the critique for everyone. I put had 3 LOs critiqued, and learned an awful lot about how to improve my work.

But, we are also lucky to have a lot of wonderful folks here who are happy to help a fellow scrapper. I left a comment on your page along with several other scrappy friends!

By the way, I think you are doing great! :2468who-do-we-appreciate:

Thanks, everyone, for all of your wonderful comments on this layout. Your suggestions were really helpful. Here is a re-do of the layout. Feel free to add ideas for improvements on this new LO as well. Thanks!
