Hey everyone!  Deborrah here again with some fabulous layouts from around the web.  It’s August 12th, and I must say, it’s a happy day!  I’ve been listening, ad nauseum, to Hamilton and the phrase, “think how lucky we are to be alive right now,” keeps going through my mind.  And yes, COVID aside, we are so lucky to be alive right now.  Today all of my picks are happy layouts, bursting with joy and life. I hope you enjoy them!

Shoe Happy by Claire Grantham

I can think of nothing else that could make a woman happier than shoes!  And Claire did a fabulous job proving my point.  I love the black and white and pink color theme, and those adorable, whimsical doodles and circles add such a joyous feel to the page.  Cute work art choices and I love her background paper layering.  It brings the whole layout together.  Nice shoes, too!  Awesome!

Forever by thuria

Next up, we have this beautiful layout by thuria.  Look at all that beautiful paint and brushwork!  And those colors – just looking at it makes me smile.  I especially love how perfectly she blended the photo with all of the artsy bits.  And that thread falling down amongst the hearts is precious.  Beautiful!!

Prepare for Takeoff by Yvette Weber

I fell in love with this layout on sight.  What a wonderful stitched travel globe!  And her paper layering is just beautiful –  this is the type of thing I try to replicate digitally, but there’s nothing like the real texture of layered papers.  Her paper choices are beautiful, too.  And I love how she added the date along a longitude line.  Truly, a beautiful layout!

Love This by mickgranny

My heart melted when I saw this layout.  How wonderful to see such a gorgeous photo of a grandmother and her grandchild.  I love the blending and framing she chose, as well as the beautiful background colors.  It works together so beautifully – the photo just pops out of the paper and grabs your attention.  Nice word art, too.  Lovely!

Today by Sokee

Another layout that made me smile today!  The happiness of her new home shines throughout this layout. I love the simple, whimsical style she chose for elements.  The doodles, pictures and confetti are so joyous – and the old fashioned photo look is just perfect!  LOVE!

Sweet Life by frani_54

Lastly, I bring you this sweet layout with it’s happy colors!  I love all the circles and her simple element choices.  But I was especially taken with the title.  What wonderful, layered letters!  It makes the whole layout come together and just pop.  I really like her paper choices – simple, but fun.  Beautiful shadowing, too.  Fabulous!

That’s it for today –  hope you enjoyed them!
