Working on this LO for DD. When I first completed these gold-toned conversions, they reminded me of a 40's era starlet. I then found a great quote from an old Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall movie. In reference to Lauren Humphrey says " She was worth a stare. She was trouble". I knew that would be the title to this page. However I am stuck on HOW to do the title (vellum, metallic paper, vellum tag ???)in keeping with the period or theme. I am guessing top left corner for the location but not sure. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Any embellishment ideas would be a great help also.

These photos are fantastic! Your baby is so sweet! I do have a few suggestions...Could you change this to a 2 page layout and pick one of the photographs for the main focus, plus a title and then add the other 2 to the second page? I think this would be wonderful and then you could pay as much attention to the title as was needed and then it wouldn't look like it was a last minute addition. Just some thoughts! It would look cool if you could spell one of the focal words of the title with small rhinestones for that true hollywood starlet feel! Anway I'll shut up now so that you can read the rest of your comments!

Thanks atomicbutterfly(great screen name). I like the idea of the rhinestones. I was actually thinking of using rhinestones but wasn't sure where they should go. I think the title would be a clever place. Now I just need to figure out how to do an "S" with rhinestones.
Keep the feedback coming!

This is super cute! LOVE the tone of the photos and the background paper! I agree with the rhinestones, they would really add some 40s/50s sparkle! I think I would start the quote towards the top left, and then put the second part of the quote on the right of the page, kwim? Also, I think that in addition to rhinestones, some organdy ribbon would work well too! nice job so far, this page is going to be darling! Be sure to show us the finished page!

this page caught my eye, love how you used Print Pattern, just got it and looking for ideas. I would agree with putting these on two pages, when I look back at some of my pages the thing I notice that bothers me on some of them is that I tried to crowd them (still do it at time, habits die hard!) By the time you add a title and your quote it will be a very full layout. I sure hope you post your finished project, love to see what you came up with.
