I am doing this page at my scrapbook club this Friday and hated the colors once I got the papers in. Since I couldn't get 12 x 12 in cool caribbean I had to make do by tearing it. I was at a total loss in getting this to look ok and wish I had enough time to reorder other papers.

i like the colors that you used, but your pictures are just sort of *floating* in the air....there's just a little too much blank space.........it's such a cute border you've done, maybe you could move some of your pictures down into the *water*, overlap them a little, maybe add a few more stamped cut-out images near the pictures.........i like it, it just needs a little *tweaking*! (and i'm not flaming you, just a little constructive criticism!!) that's such a cool accent with the wire handle on the bucket!!!! you CAN do it, sometimes it just takes a little thinkin' bout it!!!!!!! if you *edit* your page, send another pic - i'd love to see what you can come up with!!!
p.s. you can get that *undo* stuff - it'll remove your pictures and mats without damaging your paper!!
