Home Keeping Guide Cover

I've started work on my Home Keeping Guide remake and the first job is the front cover. I've done three different versions but can't decide which to use so thought it would be helpful to have other's opinions.

The first has a faded beach background:

The second is a silhouette at sunset for the background:

The third is the same beach photos as the original but it is the original photo rather than a faded version:

Please leave a comment saying which one you prefer and why.

I like #2 better, but they both are nice.

I like three. Um....just because :)

OK, I totally missed the third one, but I think I still like the second one best.

I like the first one with the faded beach background. I can't put my finger on exactly why, just that it's really pretty and kinda reminds me of sea glass.

I like number two, the first thing that came to mind was that verse "His graces are new every morning" (not a direct quote there!!) Even though it is a sunset!!
Anyway there is my vote :)

They're all very nice, but the first one is my favorite. The simpler, less boldly colored background in the first one doesn't clash with or detract from the pictures you've included on the cover.

I hope that helps!

I like the photo beach background. It is apparent what the pocture really is and yet it is not "in your face".

Love the video of your little one in the recycle bin. Too cute!!!!

I like the first one. It doesn't overwhelm the pictures so those are what you notice.

I really like the first one best. The photos pop out better, as does the title and Scripture, while still having a faint image of the sea in the background.
Are you selling this? I am putting one together, and my husband has mentioned selling it, but for now it's just being given out to close friends. :)
If you are not selling it, do you mind sharing it with me? If you are selling it, I will have to save some money aside in the next few months to purchase! :)

I like the last one better ... you can tell it's a beach easier than the 1st one ... and the coloration looks nice :-)

The first one ( faded bleach) photos always look better on a plain, pale, unfussy background IMO.

Thanks for all the comments everybody - I think I'm going to go with #1.

God's Dancing Child I'm just planning to post what I do on my blog as I go along. You are welcome to use any bits you find useful and if you want original copies of anything, just let me know and I can e-mail you them.

I really like the first and second ones the best but I would have to say I am leaning more towards the first one because the background doesn't overpower the pictures and words.

I like the first one best, I see you decided to go with that one.
