It really is a nice LO! :) I really like the way the slides cascade across the LO like a river. One thing I would say is - the compass in the upper right corner tends to draw the eye to that corner and away from the great photos. Maybe if it was either smaller or decrease the fill or opacity. The same with the signs on the left side. Maybe make them just a bit smaller and/or fade them out a little.

Just my opinion...doesn't mean much!! :D:rolleyes:

Great layout! I love all the placement of the pictures and the signs. I agree that the signs and compass distract from the pictures. I think it's because they are white and the frames around the pictures are brown. I would try to put some white grunge or brush strokes around the frames to draw attention back to the pictures. Or maybe some small white arrows around the frames to continue that sign theme. :)

First it's a great choice of a kit to use :p.

I agree with what everyone above said, but I also think you should "attach" the photo frames together, perhaps with rusty staples to continue the look. I do love the cascade though.

Ok ladies. Thank you so much for all of your comments. I really appreciate them all!

I've been working on the LO and I think it looks a bit better than the first one in some respects!:)

Is this a which one is better question? Because I like the blue better. I think, as the girls mentioned above, the focus on the red LO wasn't so much the pictures as the accessories. That said, I'd add a bit of shadow to the sign post to make it pop more. Candee has a great tutorial on shadow in the tutorials section of the fourm.

I like the window pane style of the blue one too!:)
