Work of Art? layout

Who of us with kids hasn't been there?  The day you walk into you little monster's darling angel's monster's room and find that they've decided they don't like the wall color the way it is?  All I can say is thank you for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers! 
This layout is unlike any other I've done in that there's only one photo.  Of course, that's because I only took one because it said it all!  Since I usually work on 12x12 pages and this is 6x6, I think I'll eventually incorporate it in to a larger "art" page I do.

You know the drill- the first picture is clearer but way off tilt (did I mention I have no software to rotate photos in anything but 90deg increments?  Grrrr.)  The 2nd frames better but loses some color definition.  My photos would be SO much better if I'd wait to take pix during the day with some real light but I always just want to get them posted when I finish them which almost always means after everyone else has gone to bed.
