Do these look finished?

I have been working on these pages for a little while and now that everything I had in my mind is on the page I am not sure they are finished!!

As you may of already may of realised I am a Card-maker! I have not had tooo much exposure to scrapbooking so I am unsure if they are upto scratch.

So please leave me a comment with advise if you think they need something more to spruce them up.

Just a note - I am going to gloss the letters and bling a few little spots. Also the cardstock is the same colour just looks different in the pic.

Your advise will be appreciated.

What's On your Workbench?

Well I am working on Calendar Pages for a swap I am participating in from the cricut at the moment my desk has them thrown (gently) all over the place! If this was called what is on your floor you would get to see the other 11 pages of October 2011 in all stages of life. I will have them finished this weekend I promise!!

I should let you know that I have posted this in the response to the Stamping Ground's request to see what we are up to or in other words 'our mess'!
