Hello digiscrappers! Happy Memorial Day! Ours was a bit different this year due to the pandemic. A little quieter than usual (no guests this year) but Memorial Day is always the first hurrah of Summer at the lake house! We had a great weekend with just the inlaws & managed to do a lot of cleanup of the property & the beach. Of course, we always honor the original meaning of Memorial Day as well- remembering those who gave all for us.
What a better way to start my gallery picks today than with this beauty!? I love the non-traditional flag & all the stars all blended. The title is super fun with the varying fonts. I LOVE the saluting silhouette & the quotes/scribbles.
Girl’s got skillz for sure! I tried cutting my husband & son’s hair (thankfully just a buzz cut) and it is NOT as easy as it looks! The super cute selfies, the fun paint & scatters as well as the fab journaling make this layout a standout! You go girl!
Having just spent a few days at the lake, this layout jumped out at me from the gallery. I LOVE that background paper (photo?) blended into the wood grain! I love the circular photo- almost like you were looking out a porthole window! The wave stitches & the nautical bits & pieces tie everything together perfectly!
How adorable is that baby! I lvoe the photostrip frame & the simple perfect embellishments. I love the polka dot background paper & the pops of green & blue. The white space & spot on shadowing make this a standout!
I’ve studied this layout for longer than I should admit & still cannot tell if this is just the most beautiful photograph or a painting? Whatever photo treatments the artist used are just amazing. The lighting on their faces, yet not being able to see them is SO interesting. I also LOVE how everything is blended and the inky frame around the layout. She also chose the perfect color of embellishments as well as the great use of the alpha in the title.
And the perfect layout to end my pics- Memorial Day by cfile. The photos of the flags at the tombstones just gives me the feels. I love the framed photo with the blended photo into the paper. I love the simple embellishments & the non-traditional (read: not red/white/blue) color scheme. The journaling is perfect- those grave markers are her family- makes me even more proud & thankful for their service.
While different than ‘normal’- I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day & thank you to all our service members who have sacrificed for our great country. Today is a great day to reflect & chose how we as a country want to come out of these dark days- I say we band together to support each other & come out stronger & healthy! Be kind, have grace.
