I am pretty psyched that I just finished my first LO! What do you think? I am new at this, so I can use all the pointers I can get. I have seen that a lot of the pages are very clean and some are cluttered. This, obviously, is a more cluttered one. But I will be making clean ones as well. I love both kinds. And the baby is my dd...over 7 years ago now...time goes by soooooooo fast!!!!

The page is great! Maybe play with your blending options a little (adding shadows and glows to your elements). Otherwise I think it's fantastic!

Aaawwww so cute!
Sharon I'm so excited that you're starting this. You and your DD will be able to cherish the pages you make for years to come

As far as CC - I agree that doing some shadowing or glow and play around with some filters to add some dimension and things would be good

Thank you for the cc! I was going to add some drop shadows, but I have an older program (PSE2.0) and even with the shadows on a very light setting I don't like how dark they seem. But I use them in siggymaking still. I will play around with it this afternoon to try to get some dimension.

very pretty...LO and baby! My only suggestion would also be to dropshadow the pieces. Great job!

My program is old PSE 2.0 and the shadows aren't as subtle as they are in newer programs. That is why I didn't have any to start. This is with the shadow only at 10%. That is the least amount of shadow it can have.

I think it looks better with the shadow even if it is a little over done due to the program. It just gives it depth that is needed.

i'd up the contrast on the pic some (just a tad) so that it pops some.
