Your paper clustering is Lovely and really helps those pictures stand out. I wouldn't have thought to use such bright colors with sad pictures, what a clever choice for not only your hope and desire of something better, but it also helps your pictures stand out. such personal and touching journaling. Beautiful LO!
All I can say is the layering and scattered clusters are freaking divine. Another absolutely gorgeous page by you. No matter how many times I page through the gallery your layout CONSTANTLY catches my eye. Love it.
