Default Website Critique

Okay, I need some cyber friends to step up and offer input, good or bad. I have been changing a few things on my site, such as my logo and background color and would like feedback. I posted this here because my pictures have always been a thorn in my side! This site is not complete (I don't know if it ever will be)

Back to the pictures....Do you think the frames are distracting? I can not for the life of me make things appear to float (I might add that littlecanofbeans has great pictures-I have just been on your site ...jealous of the pix).

If anyone can offer specific advice on how to do this and what editing program to use and exactly what to do while using the program, I would be forever greatful. I currently have Microsoft Digital imaging and PSPxI, if anyone knows how to achieve this using either of these and am willing to share...I'm your student. I have read and read and read and just do not get good pictures.

Thanks for letting me vent

I don't think you have anything to be upset about!! It's a beautiful site!!! I think the frames "enhance" the bows and make them "pop" more. Does that make sense? I am an avid scrapbooker and think in those terms!!!

It looks great Rene. I like the frames. There are a couple on there that don't have them. I would maybe put them on all of the pics. Don't take them away tho, they are nice!

Thank you to all that have replied. This is truly a never ending thing. I can't seem to learn all I need to know and get everything made and loaded to the site.

Barbara, thanks for the advice. I thought that I would put more frames on if they were not too distracting. I personally like them, but there again I'm a fluff kind of girl and since I can't seem to get the floating thing....why not.

I like those on your site! I agree, it does fit in with the look. I love the swirly, curly q look...I know you know what I mean, just not explaining it very well, lol! ACK! That reminds me...I need to take the St Pats day pic off the front of my own, lol! (I may wait til tomorrow...I am tired.)
