Tim, how do you plan to program the micro? I only ask because of the
odd way you are laying out ISP1 and ISP2. If you are using a standard
cable you will want to fix this. A picture is worth a thousand
Regarding dimensions, it looks like your dimensions for the board are
1.75 x 2.7 inches. You can use layer 47 (measures) for documenting the
board size if you want, but you already covered the important part
Your trace sizes are acceptable.
Not sure how you are powering your display, but make sure you use the
same ground as the rest of the circuit.
