This is the last page I completed. I am happy with the way it turned out.




This page is missing something. The tag WILL NOT be green it will be a creamy tan color. What can I add to make this page look finished. I am thinking more ribbon or flowers... but where? Should I matt the picture or sand the edges of it or maybe I should sew it onto the page?

HELP!

i think that if you just put her name on the tag it will be fine great pages!!

I agree with the pp, once you put her name on the cream tag it will be done. You did a great job on both pages.

Hmm- I agree with matting it. I am not sure about the sanding since the rest of the LO doesn't really have any distressing (except for the torn page) I do like the idea of sewing it, but I think I would matte it on a larger piece of paper that floods (meets right up to the edge of the paper) on the right with a zigzag stitch around it , then I would add the same ribbon (either one or two) you have on the B onto the bottom underneath the tag and title, then tie on a little bow on the ribbon either real close to the girl tag, or on the other side of the tag you need to complete....I know really hard to do in writing, so I drew up a small sketch. (sorry, it's the only way I could figure out to best explain what I was describing, and please forgive the 1st grade quality drawing) The zig zag is exagerated a bit, I would just do it on a smaller scale.




Oh forgot to add LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the 1st one. Did you get the sketch/design off that website that you posted earlier? (Oh and I love the Adore words

Yes I lifted her design. I dont believe that she meant for the pocket on the bottom to hold a picture but I decided that I didnt want a lot of journaling where people could read it, besides I put three tags in that pocket for hidden journaling.

Thanks!

Oops Chanda! I forgot to thank you for your sketch. I have to draw things out as well. I have a hard time explaining myself through words sometimes and drawing just comes so much easier. I think I am going to try some of what you suggested. I really value your ideas.

Ok here is what I have come up with. Do you guys think that it needs anything else? Maybe in the bottom left corner... another flower or ribbon?

Maybe it doesnt need anything. I will just have to look at it for a while to decide if I like the simplicity of the LO.

Oh... the words on the tag are rub-ons made with my printer!

It looks great to be honest! I love how the rub on turned out. It was so funny, my hubby had to buy some matte finisher for some work he is doing on his model train, but only had to use a little bit of it. So he brought it upstairs today to ask if I would ever use it...so yeah I get to try it out!

its great b/c you get the neat computer typing with out having to cut it down and mat it to your page. And it is so much more personalized.

Honestly, I liked it better before. I'm much more into simple layouts myself, though. It just looks too busy to me now with the added mat behind her picture. Just my opinion.
