Lovely colors and pattern. Only suggestion would be to try the photo against the pattern in bw like one the cover.

Thanks Amy! Do you think the color photo looks wrong next to the pattern or do you just think that I need to stick with b+w for consistency? I really wanted to use a color photo on the front, but this particular family photo had too much purple in it and we didn't have any other family sets to use. . .

I think the color photo is competing against the pattern a bit. I love the bw photo on the cover - makes the design feel rich in tradition.
