Well I've panicked

If you were 70 tomorrow & had an adored granddaughter......would you like this?

It's a sort of impulse present as we didn't know we'd have such fab photos until today so I emergency bought a frame & backing paper

& I'm panicking!!

How lovely! And what a thoughtful present to give. I think it's great as it is but why don't you have a play around with it and see if something else looks preferable.

Perhaps make it so the smaller photos are bordered in white instead of red? Or try and line them up in a way that makes the whole thing look more 'centred'? You may need to trim the photos for this effect, don't do this just at my suggestion!! I'd hate it if it went wrong and Scabby's name would be mud upon your lips!

smile not mud......but it's kind of all stick down now

I'm not good with paper!! Give me material any day!!!

I think it's a lovely idea. If the colours you've used suit her decor even better, but it's a thoughtful gift.

Think so it's a white room with red curtains but the colours were more to reflect the accents in the pictures really.....You can tell I'm bad at this can't you?

Oh yes, green and red accents to reflect what's on the photos, nice touch.

It's really a nice piece, and you can't change anything about it anyway, so embrace it. Stop worrying, she'll love it. smile

Is it done now or can you make changes? That makes my opinion change.

Ah well it is done now

The photos are great - the mounting less so wink

My mum will love it - DD grunted - DH said 'that's nice dear' without really looking

My mum's friend saw it on FB & says she will love it <phew>
