Hello!

I am in love with this skin! I want it soooo badly, but I am scared it may be too distracting since it is so busy. I am curious if anyone has this and if they find that it is okay and not too busy for them. I know everyone is different, but  usually I am not easily distracted especially while I read. Right now I only want to spend money on 1 skin so I want to make the right decision. The other decal girl skins I am considering are Jolie, Lily, Vera, and Pink Retro Flowers.
I am having such a hard time making this decision.
Thanks! :)

I have a pretty busy skin and had the same worries.  It's not distracting at all though.  You get lost in the book just as easily.  In fact, now I see naked Kindles and they look so odd without my skin on them that it just feels wrong somehow.  I was really on the fence about getting it, but I would never want to give it up now that I have it.

I've never found my busy skin distracting in any way. Actually I found the solid white of the naked kindle more distracting.

I have the Flower Cloud skin and I love it too!  Prior to that, I had the Olga skin and I really liked it, but I wanted to put a darker one on to help w/the screen/font contrast.  I never had fade issues, but I do think that a darker skin helps.  I don't find Flower Cloud distracting at all.  If you don't tend to get distracted I think you'll be fine w/it.  Good luck w/your decision!

Right now I'm using the Ocean Blue Noreve cover w/it, but I also have it in Olive Green, as well as an M-Edge Platform in Pebbled Navy Leather.  I'm contemplating an Oberon in the new Sky Blue too.  My digital camera is currently out of comission so I'm not able to post pics right now..........sorry :(

I think the Flower Cloud is very pretty. I wouldn't be at all distracted, though I did choose a plainer skin for my Kindle.

Here are links to the skins I am considering now. Please let me know your thoughts because I am really stuck on the first three. Retro Pink Flowers is my "safe" choice. But I prefer the others instead. I haven't even thought about covers yet...lol...I just ordered my K2 yesterday and couldn't resist picking out a skin right away. I shall be on the hunt for covers soon! :D This is so much fun! Vera and Flower Cloud so far are my top 2 favorites, but I am fickle, so that can change...lol....

Whwn you're looking at the skin on the website, take your hand and cover up the part that show that back. I can usually get a good idea by just looking at the front if it's going to be too busy for me.

I'm easily distracted and think that the Flower Cloud would be a bit much for me. I will say that I had Her Abstraction on my K1 and loved it. I currently have that one on my iPhone.
