Goodmorning, scrapbook enthusiasts.  You know it’s a bad day when you have no desire to even attempt to scrapbook.  I picked something up over the weekend that had me in such a state.  For the long weekend I was down for the count.  I’m so glad to be feeling better today, and I’m happy to be back in the galleries to see what I have missed for the last 3 days.  There is a subtle shift towards autumn, which in itself makes me happy.  Want to see what I found?  I’m Brenda, and these pages caught my eye today.

Marilyn by Anita

There is always room for a tribute to Marilyn,  and what a beautiful tribute this is.  Wonderful photo itself and edited with a definite artistic flair.  The soft colors and florals add to it’s beauty as does the pops of black that enhance the photo even more.  I admit to studying this one for a long while.

Girl Power by Azeline

Yah for girl power!  First of all, I like this mainly black and white page with just a few pops of color.  This series of photos is totally adorable and with those matching edgy elements in various colors and patterns behind them, it really draws your focus to them.  Lastly, the frames are a fantastic feature, especially for these fun photos.

Simply Sweet by Rosie

Perfectly titled I’d say.  How about you?  One adorable photo plus gorgeous blending and layering of these soft, pretty and well balanced elements, equals a page that deserves to have one of today’s GSO spots.

Just Me by bbymks5

I just love this “me” page.  One side has a photo and a few well placed elements and brushwork,  and the other side is a list of what she’s all about.  I didn’t notice at first that inside the jar has some fun WordArt among the stems and other elements.  What a great idea!  I love the subtle shadowing too.  This is another page I’d like to lift.  (and the list is growing)

Sophie’s Pot by KarenB

I like the clean look to this page with plenty of white space.  The simple title and well placed layering with the patterned paper and a small floral arrangement look great.  I’m not aware of a pot painting café in my town, but that sure does look like something that would be fun to do with a few good friends, or even a way to get away for a bit of mother/daughter alone time.

Queen of Ruby by Jana Holden

I just love this deep, rich color of red that is used in the elements.   Speaking of elements, I think they are placed perfectly for maximum impact.  The addition of some bits of gold are a beautiful accent.  I I especially like the golden splatters and streaks.  This is Victorian artistry at it’s finest.

Thanks to you all for checking out today’s choices.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them.  If so, please stop by their galleries to share some positive feedback.  Until next time, keep the memory keeping alive.
