Fall Fun

I made this layout for a challenge. I had to use at least 5 colors on the layout, Doodlebug glitter (it is on the lettering and scroll-y thing), the Cricut (used Alphalicious for the lettering), and the Cuttlebug (the scroll-y thing is cut out from the Swirls embossing folder). I also added some ribbons and buttons. Oh, and I used my Fastenater for the first time.

I really have not made layouts before. I have done the two page family tree spread and then a title page for the family album I hope to make. I had fun with this but it still looks like too much empty space or something. I didn't really know what to do. It was harder than I expected to make a layout. I had all these nice fall colors in my head that I wanted to use, but they all clashed so bad with the I had to use bright colors for a fall layout. Kinda weird I thought, but I guess it works.

Anyway, here it is:

Give me hints on how to improve!
