Great job on the cutout, Janessa!

Here's what I would do:
1 - make the bottom edge of the cutout level with the bottom of the frame (so the bottom goes below the frame and the top comes out above it - so it looks like they are coming out of the frame).
2 - make the circles a wee bit smaller and add drop shadows. I'd probably move the yellow one so it's peeking out on top, but that's a personal preference.
3 - the frame with the u/s photo I would tilt a little and move over to the left a little, so it's covering less of mom.
4 - I would change the font of the text "anxiously awaiting..." to a more plain font, like century gothic or something similar - since it's smaller it's harder to read in a scripty font.

I hope that helps! Great job!

I agree with Sara Also, I'd take a different paper and put it behind the picture of the 3 of them, but inside the frame. So you don't see the circles behind them, but only coming behind the them frame.
