Hi! *waves* – Vicky here, and I’m back with another round of Gallery Standouts for you on this wet and grey day here in my part of the UK! Today we are having a Pyjama day while recovering from a very late night after a wonderful BBQ & Party yesterday, when the weather was much nicer, that was for my husbands birthday, and his cousins little boys birthday too! While my son Ty is playing Minecraft on the iPad, and my husband Tim is playing Candy Crush on his phone, I’m currently curled up in the corner of my sofa with some big comfy cushions, and a mug of coffee browsing the galleries! Perfect Sunday really! So let me share with you the beauties I found! xx

STITCH! Oh my this crazy little creature is one of my sons favourite Disney characters, so this page simply leapt out of the gallery for me today! I love the nautical colours here, to go with these fabulous beach photos! The journaling is wonderful and it demonstrates great memory keeping of the moment, It would be just like Stich to try and eat a hat, hehehehe. Pocket pages are a weakness of mine, I love the angled photo paper clipped to the page, the word strips and large text directly on one of the photos. The pops of yellow are a perfect finishing touch to the page. This is one side of a 2 page layout, to see the other page click here xx
>> 12 << by beehive50
Large title work is always eye-catching in the galleries, and a large number as a title is simply quite intriguing! I just had to click on the thumbnail to see this page in all its glory! What I found was inspiring! I absolutely love the memories held in the journaling here and the story behind the number 12! Also the fact that this photo came in a form of a text, and is documentation of an announcement. The team colours in the paper choices and the flourish sweeping the page with a soccer ball at the end are perfect touches, not forgetting the team badge stapled to the page! xx

My love of painted, artsy, messy and eclectic pages is perfectly showcased right here! Just look at the wonderful layers of stamping, paint, doodles, bold papers, scatters and elements! Stunning right?! Paired with a subtle yet bold large title plus the ampersand and adorable photo, I really *heart* this page! I also really love the fact that sarr used a pocket card in a non-traditional way, showcasing the diversity of these types of products, and hopefully inspiring others to stretch their digital stash too. xx
These Dreams by Scrappie Irene
OH MY! The blending and masking of this photo and background is just stunning! The large photo and bold graphic details of the cityscape and combination of ink and paint really POPS! Along with the brushes and stamps used to create this piece of artwork, the mixed fonts/alpha title work really compliments the overall design! How can you not fall in love with that charming face too! Overall I simply think this is a remarkable page, that would look amazing printed on canvas! xx

Another fabulous blended page, it’s a technique I sometimes play around with, and enjoy, but I don’t think I ever achieve something this beautiful! The rich colours, depth and texture in this photograph really stands out! The artistic blending into the textured paper is quite simply first class! I love the worn alpha title work too, it matches the natural element of the rocks and mountain scape so well. Absolutely gorgeous! xx
No Regrets by dotcomkari
WOW! What a fabulous fully loaded clustered page! This page is so striking and impressive! The many layers and marvellous use of many types of digital media makes this page a real standout for me! I love the wood background with splashes of paint, the selection of rustic colours, the beautiful black and white photo and the mix of pretty doyleys and torn paper. Truly fabulous! xx
I hope you enjoyed todays standouts! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my picks! Please, if you could spare some time, head on over and leave these talented memory keepers, artists and scrap bookers some love in the galleries. Take care and enjoy your Sunday whatever you may be doing xx
