Digital Scrapbook Place - NKOTB Round 1

Over at Digital Scrapbook Place I have signed up to a contest called New Kids On The Block. It is a 4 week contest and is for those who are new to digital scrapbooking and want to learn more based on quality feedback and constructive critiques from experienced scappers.
For round 1 we had to use the welcome freebie kit, a freebie font and freebie word art or alphas.
Here is my first attempt. You may see the same layout tweaked as I receive comments.

I have made a scalloped edge to one of the papers. I have made a copy of the Word Art and place it slightly lower and to the right and then changed the opacity to make the Word Art look shadowed. I have cut the ribbon to make it look like it is wrapped around the photo and the part of the horizontal strip of paper. And then using a freebie font (see below for credits) I have journalled around the layout to give an impression of a border. I have used the Welcome kit. The font is Can You Hear Me Now by Suzanne C Walker. The word art is called All About You by Kerri Erickson. I have used a page map from Becky Fleck.
