black & white
in february's issue of creating keepsakes they ran a column on black & white vs. color photos on layouts. i loved the concept of trying both on a layout and seeing what you like best. some layouts and photos lend themselves so nicely to black & white, while others lend themselves to color.
they picked up a set of my layouts for publishing. this set of layouts was one i submitted that wasn't picked up. i love the colors on these photos, they are simple and the green grass just pops against torrey's white shirt. but some of the photos really help focus on the sense of emotion in the photos. so in the end, i think i like the layout with the mix of black & white and color on this layout.
