Hello and happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous crafty weekend. I enjoyed my tour through the galleries today, and have lots of entertaining, fun, and when-will-winter-end layouts to share with you. Come take a look!

This is Liz J., and these are my picks.

40th anniversary by donnatopia

That yellow and gray makes a delightful combination for this anniversary page, I was drawn right in. Love the big heart set against the doodly background paper. Wonderful comparison photos! This is such a romantic, wonderful page, I love it. The flag dates and mixed font word art are very eye-catching. Congratulations on 40 years, wishing you many more wonderful anniversaries together!

Friends by Gemma

This one made me laugh, because yeah, who didn’t love that show? And I thought it was an unusual and amusing topic to scrap about. It’s a fun way to shout out hey this is how I like to be entertained, and really, isn’t that a great, quirky thing to add to a scrapbook?! I love that city scene she created and the cool movement the sketchy circles provide. I enjoyed this one.

Snow Day by kythe

There are lots of wintery pages in the galleries right now, and this one just called out to me. I love the photo treatment. The textured background with the paint and translucent snowflake were the perfect accents. She created a scene that made me want to walk right up the stairs into the warmth of whatever is beyond. Very nice.

where did all the color go? by TheBeachGal

Here’s a fun, different take on winter, a real-life paper page done with lots and lots of buttons, sequins, flairs and do-dads! I love the washed-out rainbow idea to express this. I also really like the hand-written text, it adds such a great, personal feel. Fun alpha work on the title. The framing of the photo goes nicely with the overall theme here.

I love when a designer releases a new template, and we see lots of variations of how to use it. This was my favorite use of this template, with the soft squares of patterned paper popped off the page. Fun word art and text art running throughout the piece. That photo is very striking. Great title work to go with the theme.

i’ll love you forever, Scotland by beehive 50

This page makes quite an impact with that amazing big, big focal photo. Love the use of the white space for the word art, and the little just-the-facts text using the white space of the grass equally effectively. Sometimes less is more, of which Debi is the master. Great travel page, this would make a wonderful cover for an album.

I hope you enjoyed today’s standouts too! If so, please click on the linked title to leave the artist some much-deserved praise. Enjoy the rest of the weekend (and for those of in the states, enjoy your holiday tomorrow!)!
