Happy Monday!  Most people don’t like Mondays, but once I get out of bed, I love to kick butt on Monday.  There is nothing better than getting things checked off my list.  That includes scrapping, after getting all my to do’s done I love to sit down on Monday nights and scrap. It’s also my favorite day to look through galleries because I can see all the beautiful layouts posted over the weekend for inspiration.  So let’s take a look at my top 6 favorites today.

My first choice is Never Give Up by tammybean004.  The green on this is what caught my eye and made this layout pop out in the gallery right away.  There is so much going on that it’s a feast for your eyes.  I love how all these different elements, flowers and doodle are mixed together and layered on the page.  Such a wonderful mix of traditional and artsy styles.


My next choice is the fabulously blended page titled Early Morning by frani_54.   I just love the way the scrapper layered and blended this photo in to the background. It’s so striking!  Then the added journaling is great!  I always love a page that tells a story and that’s what this page is all about! I just love the way the scrapper tells her story. It’s almost like reading a novel with a beautiful page all around it.  Just gorgeous!

The next layout I chose is this fun layout titled We heart Newsies by pixelyyy.  First I love that this layout is grounded with a newsprint background (so fitting!). The paint is a nice buffer between the newsprint and the focal image.  Then the skyline of New York city is awesome!  Love how the title is front and center and the journaling in the heart is such a great idea.  Finally I love how the photos are added at the bottom. They really anchor the page and add nice visual appeal.

Next up is this amazing page by tracermajig titled Always Something to Explore.  I absolutely adore full photo pages and this one is so fabulous! I just love how the scrapper uses the open space at the bottom of the photo to add the title and the little banner (which is perfectly shadowed).  Then the addition of the journaling is just perfect.  I love the calming colors on the black and white photo as well.  Everything works together so beautifully!

Next up we have a page that is so warm and inviting titled Warm by IntenseMagic.  I just love the use of the bold flower paper at the top.  What a great print and it’s so warm and inviting. The next thing that caught my eye is the amazing layering in the clusters around the photo.  The shadowing gives everything great separation and these elements work together beautifully.  Finally the little bits of spatter at the bottom are perfect with the title.  Such a lovely, fall page!

My final choice for today is elevation 7901 by lizj.   I just love the mix of photos and elements on this page. There are so many things to look at!  The way the photos are layered is awesome. It helps move your eye across the page. Then the clustering of the elements it he upper right is very striking. The orange and and greens work together perfectly. Everything looks great on this pretty light woodgrain background. The perfect balance of photos, elements and white space!

Today’s layouts are amazing! I hope you’ll spend some time in the gallery today leaving a little love on your favorite layouts.
