Smile Sweet Thing

I originally did this layout with a lighter background and was pretty happy with it. After walking past it for a couple of days though, I felt that it was a little too light with too much white space, so I peeled everything off and turned the inner background paper around to show the brown polkadot pattern instead. It changed the whole look of the layout completely and made it pop so much more. So, don't be afraid to make that change if you feel you have to.

Other than that, this is a very quick layout that can be done within a half hour. Just a little bit of layering, a few flowers and bling and trim to balance it out and you're done.

Just a few elements around your photo helps to draw your eyes to that adorable smiling little face.
Clusters of flowers, buttons and bling are just so pretty.
Oh, and here's the original with a plain blue background. Definitely better with the brown polkadot one, no?
