This is a fantastic layout...really well designed. I really like that the image circles are partially off the page ...so effective. The background scalloped band looks wonderful and the black matting and accents really pop. She is hilarious. Your shading is awesome and I'm lovin' her hair and bright lipstick. Beautiful face shading, Tracy. A great big WOW on this one!

She's just hilarious! I love the muted colors you've paired up with the black here, too! Seems kind of odd to say it's beautiful,...but it is!!! (In a kind of funny, kind of wrinkly, kind of saggy way!;)
