Transferring my Digital Clock from Breadboard to a PCB

I had fun learning KiCAD last weekend. After 2 days of fun learning, I thought I should transfer my digital clock project to a nice pcb. I asked myself why do I need a gorgeous pcb? And here are the answers to my questions:

1. I want to get rid of the mess on my work table.
2. The hardware can be temporarily freeze to its current version. I still have plans of adding more features on the hardware side.
3. I want to check how it will look like in a professionaly designed and fabricated pcb.
4. I want to concentrate in creating a better firmware.

With the above mentioned reasons, I was able to convinced and motivate myself to create the pcb. As of today, I am done with the initial design and here is the initial render:

The pcb I created is basically an arduino uno shield that can be used as a tool for learning and getting familiarized with the programming language of arduino. This really perfect for beginners and can still be appreciated by  the experts.
