Your image looks great, and this looks like one of the best projects from the class. I'm really excited to see the final outcome.
A couple of notes (If you want them...):
Watch your resolution. I can see pixelation on your squares and on some of your circles. If you'd like to make sure you get clean edges, you "smart shapes" instead of making a box and filling it with the paint bucket on photoshop.
Use your type approprately: treat words during this project as precious. Avoid using unnecessary words and try to use shortened versions and simple language; think of your audience as a 14 year old girl, and image maintaining her attention. You've also set up an awesome opportunity to use some of the "lingo" of text messaging as a humorous aspect. Try throwing in some LOL and acronyms to reflect your content.
Create a better separation between your two contrasting data points. Visually, it's chaotic if you don't separate them more with white space. Build off the edges of your paper in a dynamic way, and leave the white space in the center instead of around the edges.
Over all, nice work. Please let me know if you ever need a second opinion.
