60 is the new 50 by whatannaloves

I loved this the second I saw it in the gallery!
The colours are beautiful, the photo filter awesome,the brushes, the candles pics cool and the message is so true!!!!
The saying ‘age is nothing but a number’ is more true today than ever!

So pretty!The adorable little girl’s face is so sweet!
All the elements are arranged just perfectly!
Love the stitched frames and the BW photos against the colorful elements too!

1st haircut by Liahra 

I am a HUGE fan of Liahra’s pages!
The perfectly colorful patterned paper and elements really make the BW picture stand out!

Also like the the use of colors and the white space here!!

Finger Pointing – December 22nd

22 Dec

Seasons greetings everyone!Hard to believe it’s only 3 days until Christmas.
Like myself, I imagine that every one of you must be in full holiday swing by now!
This week I have finally kicked off buying Christmas presents, and am proud to say that I am nearly halfway done!
We’ll have a huge Christmas party at my Mother in law’s house Saturday night for about 50 people!!I’m actually feeling pretty festive this year.

I hope you’re all enjoying this week, and now, on to some beautiful layouts!

Tree 2011 by editorialdragon 

The bright colors on the white here just pop. These glitter flakes are the perfect too!
Eye catching title: love the way that she positioned the letters.
And the shadowing is really well done!

no-10-c by alamama 

Could not pass up this one.
Absolutely beautiful photo with the perfect amount of embellishment to let it shine!

Garland4 by sucali

It’s these Garlands and Snowflakes that makes this page for me.
The photo is gorgeous and the flow of elements and shadowing is amazing!

acrobate by salamandre

This page just rocks.It was the title work that grabbed me here, this one is perfect and that photo is fantastic.
Just all so well done.

New year by hekas 

What a beautiful monochromatic layout!
Just stunning: the pic, the blending, the simple word art!!!

[joy to the girl] by whatnext 

Simple. Stunning.
I love her sense of humor and self-portrait!
I like how everything comes together with the BW colors.

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC CHRISTMAS !!!

Finger Pointing – December 20th

20 Dec

Hi Friends!  I can not get over the amazing layouts in the galleries today.  I picked more than normal, well, because I just couldn’t resist.  It was like picking and eating the best Christmas cookies without the calories!  So let’s get to it because the list is long today!

My first pick is Don’t Be Fooled by Jacinda. I love the classic styled layout, the lovely title work, and the great photos and journaling.  It’s just an all around excellent layout in my humble opinion!

Next is My Papa by Sheana. Today is my Dad’s birthday and he goes by Papa too, so this caught my eye today for sure.  I love the journaling, the great layering, and the special photos.  Don’t miss a chance to take pics of our older family members, they are so precious!

Next is Winter Beautiful by KatherineB.  While the elements are artfully placed, I just couldn’t get over the absolutely gorgeous photograph. What a beauty!  I love the layered snowman too. So cute!

The next amazing layout is Be You by Ferdy. I love the whimsical style, the fun and funky style, and the bright colors.  It’s nice to see a few different colors in the midst of the Christmas season!  I also love how she ran the journaling down the left hand side of the page, facing outward. That’s unusual and fun!

The next amazing layout is Star of Christmas by Zwick.  I love, love, love bokeh Christmas lights, so this layout does not disappoint.  The vibrant colors against the dark background are striking, just like Christmas lights on a dark winter’s night.

And yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and there are more layouts!  The next one is Satisfy Me With Chocolate by ladynorth.  Color. Chocolate. More Color. More Chocolate. Need I say more?

My final pick of the night is Joy to the World by mymalloryboys.  I love the photos, the lovely type placed in different ways around the page, and the spirit of charity that is the theme. It’s never too early to teach our littles the true meaning and value of helping others and bringing a little joy into the world.

This is my last day to pick before Christmas, so I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanaukkah, a meaningful Kwanzaa, and a fun Festivus for the rest of us.  May there be joy in your world, peace on Earth, and good will to all men and women.



Finger Pointing – December 18

Good evening everyone, I hope you are enjoying this hectic time of year! I am ending a super busy day with a leisurely browse through the gallery, a lovely hot chocolate and a mince pie. Or two. Yum!

Hanukkah by Jenn33199

Just look at all these patterns here! I love how Jenn created her own background using all the papers and elements, this is such a striking layout.


Documenting 2012 by Soco

I’ve seen a few year in review pages in the gallery already but this one really stood out with its soft tones and colours and the photographs wrapping themselves around the edge of the page.


Santa Baby by nagato

Oooh this is just SO Christmassy! Fabulous rich colours, great layering and wonderful depth – the light given off by the fairy lights on the right hand side is a great little touch too!


geek of mine by mrshobbes

At first the seemingly haphazard arrangement of paper elements was what caught my eye with this page, and then I read the journalling, laughed out loud and knew straight away I had found one of my standouts for the day! Its such fun to record these little memories.


The happy elf by madi

The collagey feel of this page makes me happy, it reminds me of my college sketchbooks! I really like the mix of styles included here and all the cut paper pieces.


The Clock by stefdesign

What a fabulous, heartfelt (and very cool looking!) clock. Stef created this clock for her son and daughter-in-law as a Christmas gift, such a great idea for a personalised gift! I love the retro feel this has.


Finger Pointing – Dec 17th

There’s so much winter beauty and holiday joy in the galleries tonight. It was a delight to surf through them, but hard to narrow it down! I finally did, though, and here are the standouts:

Happy Holidays by askings
I love the mix of paint and doodles here. Those whimsical bells and pops of red add just the right amount of strength to the visual triangle on the page. Beautifully done!



Icy Cold by debbysrose
The playful juxtaposition of the large photo on one side and the cluster of small photos on the other works well. I like the feel of peeking into this whole day, too.



Snow by alabama
I love the black and white photo on the white paper. The snowflake matting and minimal elements really jump put. Great work!



The Graduate by bethdraper
The graphic pop of the large A and the overall construct of the cluster on the arrows add such a dynamic quality to this page. Lots of visual interest!


The Sweet Season by Leandi
Beautiful clustering, excellent paper choice and a beautiful photo all come together in an outstanding page. Well done!


Dec 3rd by teeleedee
The white background and simple anchor of the tree brushwork drew my eye. I love the simplicity of the center cluster and balanced use of color in it.


Thanks for stopping by the blog tonight! Enjoy your weekend.

The galleries aren’t as full as usual, I think everyone is busy at the end of the year…

Here are my picks from the galleries today, I hope you enjoy them!

I Love My Santa by sparklyduck75

Such a great memory to keep! Her dad painted this beautiful Santa face!
I really like the way the journaling is telling us about her childhood feelings.

Precious by zwyck

This layout just enchants me. The photo series is too cute!
I love the little girl’s expression and I think the tone of the photos really makes them pop too.

SO Very Merry by Ultracoolmama

Such a wonderful Christmas page, the composition here rocks!
Just look at that super cute photo! The cutest Santa ever!

Legos by skrpbkmom

Isn’t this cool ?!I love how clean it is! Emily’s title work is so fun and the photo is perfect!

 More Silly Faces by KarenC

This is a cool page with the colorful and funny photos that captures a little moment of joy.
I have seen amazing pages with these pockets! Love all the details inside the pockets.

perfect day by salamandre 

Muriel still wows me with her layouts!
I really like the perspective and depth on this layout – looks like he’s riding a bike right out of the layout!Simply perfect page, the tones really complement the photo.

Hope you are all having a fantastic week!
See you in a couple of days.
