Good afternoon!  Can you believe it….it’s SNOWING where I am!!  Quite a shocker after such a lovely October.  Great weather to stay inside and scour the galleries for some eye candy.


tconlan’s the Tights  I love these photos with the detail shot as the main photo.  I also love that she offset the stripes in the photos with lots of polka dot patterns.  Fabulous.


princessj0yce’s My precious one  Love the richness in this layout along with the pops of purple.  My favorite part is the circle element accenting the title.


pne123’s ABCs and 123    I love the alignment of the elements, journaling and photo here.  The background paper really enforces the theme.


Mel’s Forever  I love the use of frames as structure for the rest of the page.  Great shadowing and blending too.


marne’s lol Fabulous blocking!  I love the positioning of the journaling on either side framed by the strings.


kaleandkiara’s Daily Dose Fabulous composition and use of tiny elements to convey the theme.  In fact, I’m craving a cup of joe right now!


carolat’s Renaissance Sunset This grabbed my attention right away in the gallery.  I adore the grid and blocking of the photo, the way the title mimics the sunset and the balance of tree and cloud elements.


anetka’s Winter Dream  This is so soft and dreamy.  I love that little face peeking out from the title!


1girl1boy’s this right here  Fabulous photo and crop.  I love the simple design that really lets the photo shine.
