I have been fooling around a lot, but this is the 2nd siggy I've made where I was really trying! The template is SPinkD's but I did all of the colors and stuff like that. CC welcome.

That's adorable!!! CC...I would suggest to mess with your photos...the brightness, contrast and color adjustments so that they all have the same "look" to them. The first pic looks to have great coloring to it (not too yellow, etc.). I would put drop shadows on your papers and such and switch the drop shadow to black instead of yellow on the letters. The letters looks really washed out like they're too overexposed, so I don't know if you adjusted something in the alpha kit or made the tags though. It is a super cute sig and great photos! 2nd siggy??? WOW - great job!

I thought of doing that, but I'm clueless about those settings. I'll definitely have to play with them some. I agree, the contrasts should all match on the pics. I didn't want to lasso her out because it would be difficult to get her curls. The reason I did the letters with an orange drop shadow is because I wanted them to match the outline of the heart. I am super anal. LOL. But you are right- they do look overexposed. I think that's the way the letters in the kit all are.
So you recommend drop shadows on papers too? I'll have to play with that some.
Like I said, I've been playing around with A LOT of pics and elements just to learn stuff but this is the 2nd siggy I've made that I was going for a "finished product" so to speak. Realistically, this is probably my 6th or 7th "project."
Thanks so much for the CC ladies! I'm going to make some changes and repost.
