Thank you all so much for your comments (I've had to play a lot with this one!). Which is better - this version or version 4? I was feeling like the white snow was really heavy against the brown background in previous versions, so I think I prefer this one (makes the photo on the front stand out more too)... or is the solid brown on background on all pages classier? Would love any feedback - thanks so much!
