Picture Help!

I started this layout a couple of months ago at a friend's house (thanks Mel!) I am not accustomed to creating layouts without pictures already in mind for the layout so it took me a while to decide what pictures to use. I finally decided on pics from us (along with my husband's sister) taking my father-in-law out for Fathers' Day dinner. It is still a work in progress as I have journaling and other fun things to add, but I am stuck with the picture on the first page. I really wanted to use it because it was so sweet how Sammie wanted to give her Daddy a flower she had just picked (okay it was a dandelion weed, but to her it was a beautiful flower!) What I am not thrilled about is all of the cars in the background since we were in a parking lot. Any suggestions on taking the focus off of the cars?

What about a prima, or paer flower the color of the dandylion that he picked? Place it on that part of the photo, covering the cars? That way people's eyes will be draw to daddy and daughter and what he's giving her.......The flower would tie in, but also fade into the background.

Email me a picture copy of it and I will try to add some special effects to the photo to draw the eye to the subject of the picture and away from the cars. If it works out you can reprint it.
If it doesn't work out, no loss.

I DO know your last name as J has said it to me many times :) , but I am tired and drawing a blank. I'm sure I will wake up in the middle of the night with it. At the top of my blog is a link to my CTMH page and it has my email and a direct link in fact. You can email me there and I'll shoot it over! You're the best! :) I'll put this msg on your blog too.

stamp a vellum dandelion white on white for that corner of the photo with the seeds blowing onto the layout.
