Your layout caught my eye even before the gallery page finished loading. The patterns and colors remind me so much of my darling German momma, especially the cute red heart above your excellent B&W photo. I love the red-black, and white color scheme with highlights in yellows and greens, and the pretty white lace trim on either side of the center column. Fun title and ribbon work, too. In fact, I like your layout so much that I nominated it for this week's Baker's Best.
