Is this going to be etched?
What's the overlap in the red circle?
Also I am assuming the 2K resistor is going on the under side of the board?
I am guessing that you don't have a schematic?
Using the breadboard layout on the libs google code page which has given me the working prototype.I'm just sruggling with the conversion from arduino to minimal 328 circuit.

Designing a schematic in Fritzing is next to impossible. Just make sure you re-recheck your routing on the PCB. I dropped Fritzing because of it's schematic downfalls. If you plan on making more PCBs, I would highly suggest moving to Eagle.
Crystal is rather far from the processor. I believe Atmel recommends as close as possible with a ground plane.No bypass capacitors?I believe the TLC5940 datasheet calls for a capacitor of several microfarads across VCC and GND.
Codelink - still building the schematic for this =(
I prefer DipTrace, and I've been using it for the last year for my personal projects. I know Eagle might be more powerful and has a gigantic user base, but I like DipTrace better. The free version is great and should be enough even for more advanced hobbists.Back on topic: ditch that layout, since there are several problems with it:- the crystal is too far from the 328- there are sharp corners in the traces. Never, NEVER route traces with 90º angles.- there is no bypass capacitors for either chip- it is good practice to use every space left in the board (in its signal side) for a copper pour linked to the ground net.If you decide to go ahead and use that circuit anyway, that one is easier done with a perfboard, rather than etched. Make use you use DIP sockets, instead of soldering the chips directly to the board.
and added the bypass to the tlc5940
