Hi!! Hope you are all well! I’m delighted as I have one my life time friends (40 years of friendship!) here at home staying with us for the weekend, the weather in London hasn’t been bad (well, at least indoors as I haven’t been able to go places this week!) and I managed to cook 3 meals though, with the help of my carer but that means I have been eating relatively well, which makes me forget about the few things that always come to interfere with my scrapping! LOL But lets go into what brings us together here, some awesome inspiration from the galleries!!
I saw the page and I knew a closer look would make me love it more..which it did. The blending work here is spectacular, those bubbles that take the imagination and make it see movement, the brushes accents, marvelous tittle work, and I could go on and on about all that is awesomely magic in this page… there is the one thing, the why this page came to be. Hearing that your mum has cancer is a pain I can’t even start to imagine… I really really hope things will get better, Erin… I’m glad the scrap therapy takes shape into this page, and we can share a bit and maybe be there with you in some way, even if far geographically.

I love travel, I love travel pages, this one is so beautifully composed, the photography is amazing, the layering and the way the photos are placed in the canvas as if they were just thrown on a table, the contrast of the b& white ones with the color – and what an awesome place to go! The stitches give that extra touch to complete the whole thing, Gorgeous all over! Road Trip by *gina*
Oh how happy it makes me to come across this girl!!!!! As usual with her, I am marveled by the beauty and the gorgeous softness that shines here… The photograph is awesome, still trying to guess how it was taken on that amazing angle! The great composition has perspective that gives movement, the colors so elegant and those ink brushes/arrows are perfection, the super awesome tittle work, all has me in awe and then I read the journaling and it completes full circle..adding the cute and loving wait for April the Giraffe to give birth!!!

Me being an element hoarder and my pages almost always ending up on a bit of a mess, my admiration for those who can compose minimalist is huge. It is not easy to make a piece of stunning art with little, it isn’t easy to do the blank space/minimalist style not even using a template that will direct you to one little photo to locate and one or two elements….the choices of those photo or elements is vital and not always makes an impact…. so this really, really has my un divided attention and admiration!!!! Awesomely creative, the lower opacity in the background images gives the extra touch, though even as I type I have to say is impossible to pin point to just one thing or many separately as this is all so harmonious and perfectly composed, it all works in conjunction with the rest! And again, as I type as realize there is so much to discover, so much detail that makes this whole thing the wonderful piece of art it is…absolutely stunning!!!! March Bingo #19 by mamaestes
I love, love deeply love cacti. From the very first cactus plant I bought when I was 19 or 20 sharing a house with other young people, to the ones we have in our bathroom that have been there for over 15 years and still strong, all of them give me this wonderful feeling…maybe silly, maybe is the fact that is a plant I associate with survival against all odds, a bit like my own life, but I love the plants and love them scrapped into perfection like it is done (awesomely!) in this page. The way the composition flows almost like wanting to fall out of the page, but at the same time giving the sensation that grows towards the top of the page is fabulous, the myriad of elements, gorgeous, super well layered and clustered, the fact that there is an catalogue of different type of elements, different textures , a bit of word strips, a wonderful word art quote..I am especially in love with that cute, old rust kind watering can and the cloud oh that cloud is so gorgeous!!!!!!! Another stunning creation!!! Let Your Dreams Blossom by Saar
I had seen this page earlier (when I wasn’t looking for this post) and had to stop to comment as I love it so much! Again, that elegance, the minimalist beauty I admire so much takes shape here. The photographs speak loud, the gorgeous feeling of those smiles, the amazing image editing, the whole monochromatic feeling – again: not easy to achieve with greatness as it is done here!- the little bit typed in the bottom of the page, the detail of those stamps siding the central composition…. just awesome, absolutely, hugely and amazingly awesome!!!! treasure by timounette
Next page has me with my jaw down there and amazed and stunned and all the awesomeness of the creativity of this lady cannot be put down into words…I am loving that she isn’t in our 7 days list this week as it means I can have the pleasure of highlighting one of her pages!!!! and what a page this is!!! I know we all may see different things in a somehow abstract piece as this is, but the woman I see here shouts artful, beautiful, crazy creative and makes me want to stare at this for ages!!!! Not only that but here again, that monochromatic thing done to perfection…an artwork piece to treasure!!!!! Spring 2017 by Marleeen
Coming back to memory keeping here, one of my most loved people and one of my most loved things in scrapbooking which is LOTS of journaling, coming together in this page that makes my heart sing and dance a little dance in my head (in the real time the crutches get on the way LOL) I have been following this girl’s gorgeous pages for quiet a few years now & love the way she excels in any style. Looking at this gives me such a wonderful feeling…the big photo, the vertical thing that goes so well and all those beautiful, delicate touches with the elements, all coming together perfectly with the gorgeous tittle work and those amazing shadows, and add to all these the journaling which is so beautiful, so much captured of a moment of family happiness… Love every little bit if this!!!!!!

Last but not least, a gorgeous full page with a bit (ok, ok, a LOT LOL) of eye candy. Love the way the page is composed, the perfectly fitted lot of book covers, the layering that gives the sensation of a dimension, gorgeous tittle work and in general everything here feels so original as composition goes, the highlighting of the central book tittle and making it part of it, all feels to me like one of my books I would keep, my diary when I was young… gorgeous all over!!!! #mancrushmonday by gwany1999
This is all from me today, hope you enjoy these, remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking in the high lit name of the LO & author, we all know much a word or two can mean to us, brighten our day and make it a happier one!!! Thanks, have a great weekend!!!
