Megan's 4th Birthday Layout

I actually finished a layout this past weekend, but never posted it! I need to figure out the lighting in my craft room, and the best way to photograph my layouts.. but here it is!

I wanted to play around with the clustering look that I love on other people's layouts and this is what I came up with. I made the tulle rosette and added a Papertrey Ink button

And then added more buttons (and bling) next to her name

I think that it needs something else on the top right of the page. It does not feel balanced to me... any suggestions?

I agree. I don't know how other people can pull off those clustered layouts. I always feel that they are a little off balance, too, when I try. (and I'll be honest, I usually have so many photos, I don't often feel I can leave empty space. I usually just cram in a few more photos!). What if you added a cake image, or the number four.... Something subtle, but just a little something to bring that balance.....

This is great... love the paper and you did great with the embellies!

What a sweet princess. :) Maybe you would like a blingy swirl up in the upper right?

Oh my giddy Aunt! This is one very special page. So pretty and totally captures little miss' beautiful spirit. I've never scrapped before but your creative genius has me wanting to give it a go as I see how special scrapbooking can be. Case in point: Your beautiful , shimmery layout. So magical!

This is so pretty! I love the pinks, bling and rosette! I agree with the others - maybe something like a swirl, another rosette or a large chipboard #4 in the right top corner?

Gorgeous layout and colours - I love how you've clustered all those elements and embellies. Maybe it does need something at the top right?

She'll love it - - and I would totally fill that space in the upper right too....without you saying anything...I wouldn't add anything chunky, but more like a little corner border like something of what I have on the top right of this card: http://michellephilippi.com/?p=2112 - - but a little bigger in your case...just not chunky to not take away from what you have going on already.
