Ok people, thanks to all those sweet comments, here is my second version! I took Katrina's advice - given to me through a quick email less than an hour ago? SPECIAL ME! thanks Kat!
I've soften the background up, its a lot more easy on the eyes, not so harsh with the white. Also just increased the size a bit (advice taken from Kathie, thanking you!) and aligned the bottom bit of layered paper with the line of dots.
MMM yep the page is prefect now! Thanks again for the advice and comments!
