2nd attempt for layout design challenge.
Celebrating birthdays was special to my grandmother and me, hers was Nov 30th and mine is Dec 11th and we usually have a family dinner/celebration together. Last year was a little different, they threw me a surprise birthday party --hence the black roses. We still also went out as a family to celebrate my grandmothers 89th birthday and mine in a smaller way. This was the last birthday celebration we would share together as she passed away this past April. She was a very important part of my life and I miss her very much.
Darkened journalling font
Made the drop shadows on the frame, purple paper, journaling block and flower bolder
Updated the drop shadow and played with beveling on the top two flowers, not sure why they now appear to be different colors, I did not alter that at all.
Added a light purple flower behind the flower in the bottom right hand corner.
Removed my Aunt from the picture and made the extraction of my grandmother larger and added a shadow to make the picture more of your focus.
