A co-worker asked me to scrap this picture of her daughter and I've been procrastinating for about a month. The mom didn't give me any help on journaling or captions and although the picture is darling I've been drawing a blank at something that would do it justice.

So here is the basic layout and a possible title. If anyone has any suggestions for journaling help....or any thoughts at all on how I might improve this before printing it for her I'd be ever so thankful!!!

I'm open to any and all suggestions even as far as starting another layout all over again if this one doesn't work.

Used Lauren Bavin's kit "Art of Dance" for everything except the background.

EDIT...followed Lauren's terrific directions to get the lower right picture edge to look tucked under the mat curl. With careful adjustment even got the edge to look a bit shadowed....thanks Lauren!!!

Wonderful! Love the photo and how you really made her the focus in a photo filled with other kids. Such a soft and lovely LO too!

I think the picture speaks volumes! Journaling doesn't seem to be required here at all. The picture is soo cute and the layout is so soft and sweet that is just complements it so well. I love what you have done here.

I agree with Hershey. I don't think it needs any journaling. This one is a prime example of "A picture says a thousand words"! Its wonderful and I know she will love it as is!

Im in agreement too - dont think it needs any journalling -youve done a great job with the layout. The only thing i could suggest - and it might be a bit tricky - is to reduce the opacity of the photo enough so you can see the curve of the rolled edge of the paper underneath - now you need to carefully select that part of the photo that would be under that rolled edge now bring the opacity of the photo back up - then using a very big eraser brush ( enough to cover the whole piece of the photo- set at around 70% opacity - click on that photo area - this will make it look like the photo is under that curved edge but you will still be able to see it faintly( with the curved paper being vellum) ( you might have to adjust the opacity of the eraser brush to get it right

Wow, nice work, doesn't need anything. Love Lauren's suggestion. My only suggestion would be to put the shoes in front of the picture (but then, you might not see the rolled edge underneath). Beautiful!

This is absolutely stunning. I agree with the other comments about not needing journaling. Beautiful job.

I love this the way it is. I couldn't see any improvements needed - the brightness of her and the gentle blurring of the others is fantastic! What a beautiful kit too! I bet your co-worker just loved this! Wonderful job!~

This is just perfectly lovely! The photo is darling and I think you have done a wonderful, soft layout with it. I love the title words. The only think I can think of might be to play around with using a different font for the title, or possible applying a metalic style to it (like "WOW chrome") and then adjusting the tint on the chrome to a pink color to match the color of the "Dance" element. But...really, it's quite lovely as it is now!
