Good afternoon to one and all!  I started looking through the galleries this morning and left to take care of some business.  My intent was to come back this afternoon and briefly go through the galleries again and wow, there has been a lot of activity today!  I wish I’d been able to showcase a few more, but rules are rules.  I’m Brenda, and these pages have been selected as gallery standouts today:

On the Beach by profolly

What a gorgeous scene!  This page reminds me of my own two adventurous sons.  I’m drawn to the beautiful shades of blue water and soft wispy clouds, but still the focus is contained to the lower left portion.  Wonderful photo treatment as well.

He’s tough but he loves his sister by Ozegirl

This is a super nice design and it starts out with that sweet brother/sister photo.  I like how the large photo is used as part of  the background and then she layered the four snapshots on top of it. As with the first page mentioned, this large photo has a great treatment and because she made it into a black and white, it really makes the colors in the framed photos really pop.  Love the text strips too.


Look mom, no training wheels!  Now THIS is a must document.  I just love these candid photos of her little one learning how to ride on two wheels.  What a thrill!  Great elements, mix of colors and layered perfectly.  Please give him a yahoo and high five from me too?

Brain Freeze by Cherrylej

I couldn’t pass up this cute page.  It’s just perfect for the season.  All of these cute little elements make me smile.  The springy colors and fun patterns all flow so well together and those clusters look great!

Be Wild And Wonderful by jakrn

I like this advice – Be wild and wonderful!  The photo drew me in at first.  Who wouldn’t want to be flanked like this?  The title on the lower left of the photo is perfect.  The somewhat messy background looks great for this boy page, and yet when I look at it, I consider it to be white space.   How did she do that?  There’s a lot going on, but it all flows so well.  My kind of page.

Kiss the Cook by Angel Jet

Isn’t this adorable?  What a sweet photo.  (insert smily face)  I especially like the background and those well placed food and kitchen elements adorning this mini chef.  Too cute.

Just a quick side note before signing off.  I was thrilled to see that the DigiShopTalk gallery is up and running again.  Welcome back!  (you’ve been missed)   I hope you’ve enjoyed these selections.  Have a great rest of your day.

  1. Thank you so much for including my layout. I loved your comment on my brother/sister LO. These two grandchildren are so close and I love the interactions between them. Thank you for making my day brighter 🙂

  2. Thanks for mentioning my page here! My daughter is 20 years now and she still loves cooking. Although I think she won’t put up a cooks hat anymore, lol.

    1. How cool! I like it even more that I know it’s a vintage(ish) photo. Thanks for sharing that.
