Dawn, thank you so much for your kind words but those little stitched circles element wasn’t made by me. It was created by Marisa Lerin of Pixelscrappers in an element set for their “Picnic Day” bundle. Guess you noticed that I liked it so much that I used it twice!
Marlene, I love what you’ve done with that photo layout. Your pictures are well composed too. Sorry to hear about your mishap, though.
