I chose B, mostly because I was thinking of the binding and hole at the top. They both are great, nice balance, design and photo choice.

I like the script font and I like the space left for notes.

I like the script but not sure if you need it on "notes" - you could try a light weight s/serif in caps - Avenir has some nice light weight versions - hope this helps and best wishes - Amanda

The script is a little challenging to read (notes). Maybe increase the size.

Perhaps match the "notes" font to the days of the week. Also, a light border (or color block) on the notes section may help integrate it into the photo layout. Perhaps color there instead of the blank date squares. ... Did that make sense? :/

Hello Jam the script looks fine. I'm wondering if you could try moving the Aug and boy to left side and move dad and notes to the right side? Just a thought
