Thanks for the advice on my kiddo layout, the best gifts. I think it was sound advice - my only worry is if the text isn't legible on various photos then it's not too functional. But it does look good with the changes so thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your time!

Hi Kimberly, Thanks so much for your feedback on my submission "Love". I did try to center the text vertically and horizontally, but am unable to change much of the height as it includes the bleed in the design. Your work is beautiful! Thanks again! So grateful!

Hi Kimberly, So nice to read your comments about my design and thought it too funny that 5 minutes before I posted it the background color was pink. Great minds and all of that...so excited for your business and recent pics featured on blog. It still means a lot to me that you were the first to comment on my very first design and makes we wonder if all minties can recall who first encouraged them.
