UK Scrappers challenge July week 2

I surprised myself and did Michelle’s challenge on the day she posted it. Then I decided I hated it – I didn’t like the dark blue card, the messy background, the floating title and the way the snowman seemed to take centre stage and detract from the photos. So … I pulled it apart and had another go. See what you think. The new one is on the right, before anyone puts their foot in it. LOL

Ok, I'll give you my two penneth. I prefer the colour of the new one and the snowman tucked behind the photos but I prefer the placement of the photos on the old layout. I'm not a lover of wonky pictures even though I do do it occasionally.

Both fab pages though and it's a shame you can't count the points twice!

ahhh...now I have to say I actually prefer the photos wonky and I usually hate wonky...I don't think I've ever done a wonky pic! But I like the way they have been matted and the way they are scattered on the new version....I see what you are saying about the title, it does look better like that :)

The second one is better I think. And yes, I struggle to put things wonky but it suits here. I prefer the snowflakes without the snowflakes so yes, I liked the first one but the second one is better :) xxxx

Me too. Prefer the second version, but prefer the block of photos. Anchored titles DO look better. :)

I like the wonky ones too - it seems to suit it better and the new background shows the photos better. Yes, another vote for no. 2 xxx

I prefer No.2 as well but I do love the dark blue background in No. 1. I love the wonky photo's they seem to give them movement and I think the placement of everything else in 2 is just perfect, especially the snowman (very clever to tuck him away) and the title. Well done for having the patience to start over again!x
