I made a mosaic background of the actual chalk drawking my daughter and hubby made, now it just looks so busy I am not sure how to embellish it. I would appreciate any suggestions!

cute lo! Maybe roll up paper to look like pieces of chalk? You could use the colors of the actual "masterpiece".

I'd go for flowers or chalk sticks as suggested in the bottom right corner slightly overlapping the last pic

I don't think it's busy at all either. If you happen to have a cricut, there's a cart with "stick people" - Car Decals - they'd be cute on there, they'd look like the drawings. If not, go ahead and add your flowers, flourishes, whatever.

I really like the layout as is - really neat idea! Of course, adding a little bling has never hurt anyone, right? I like cshortel's stick figure idea, that would be really cute.

Thanks Everyone! I really liked the stick figure idea. I have a silhouette and found some stick figure images and created stick figures of the family. just have to put it all together and add it to the gallery! Maybe Saturday or Sunday...

I like the stick figure idea...maybe have your daughter color them with chalk and then put them on the lo. I also think a title or little saying would be nice too....

I finished it...i was still worried about it being really busy so I only added my stick figure family and a title in the big empty space:)
