    of these layouts you like better. I can't quite figure out how to scrap these pics from a festive cash wash. The one with the red pops feels more my style but doesn't capture the kitcsh of a Christmas car wash. What do you think?

    I like the blue one. It's more festive. And I like colorful.

    You see the photos better in the blue one, but I do like the white! I'm very helpful...

    lol! I'm a mix too! I think you see the photos better on the gray one and I love that dark blue color with the BG. But then I love the title on the blue one, plus, I like the "glowing" light elements on the blue.

    I guess I lean toward the blue as a whole! I'm not much help... like Jan said! :giggle

    I like the top one best. My eyes are drawn immediately to the photos, and there is space between your top elements, your photo block, and your bottom elements/title. The light background with the blue elements makes the blue in the photos really pop.

    In the bottom one, my eyes aren't sure where to go. Your title, your photo block, and that light up soldier are almost all the same height and they're touching so my eyes can't tell which is the focal point. It's also 'busier' with more elements.

    I like the top one best too. I love the contrast with the blue against the neutral, the star and the title work and I think that it makes the blue within the photos pop too.

    I love the top one best. I like the blue star under that white photo strip and I love the title on that one.

    I'm 100% with LeeAndra here. You can "see" the pictures better on the top one.

    I'm a mix. I like the title and elements on the blue one but I would switch out the blue paper for the gray one from the other LO. If you want to keep the blue, let it show as a border.

    They're both great, but I like the blue one best. If you like the pops of red then add the red to the border of the circle photo and have the best of both.

    Wow, I like them both. As a Born Libra, ever considered a two page LO using them both? :)

    Not sure why this LO was such a struggle for me, but it's done. Thank you all for the feedback. It was very helpful in editing!
