Hello again!! It’s Susan, here to bring you six new goodies to finger-point and highlight for you today!  It has been such a crazy summer. I hope this day finds you healthy and well, and if your kids have gone back to school already, I hope you enjoy a little quiet time for yourself!!

I took a few minutes (okay hours) scouring the galleries around town, and here are some exceptional pages that I found. You can go to the page by clicking on the photo or the name of the page. Please go give these ladies props!! They deserve them!

Over at Pickleberry Pop, I saw these pictures and I was DONE!! I had to click and see these adorable pictures of the Pandas.  Liz0704 did an amazing job capturing the fun, playful side of that adorable panda – and the title “Happy” was perfect. I loved the soft colors she chose, a long with the ancient feel of the blended paint background!

My next stop in digi-land was Katie Pertiet Designs. What a treat I had in store for me today. It was really hard to choose just one!!  But just one I did, and it’s FAB!!

Blackkathy posted this page and oh, those eyes!!! Those little girl eyes pulled me right in and I had to see the rest of it. The sweet little butterflies around that photo are a wonderful layer to the paints that she used. Flowers, leaves, text, splats – all perfect to contrast her photo. I loved the singular string and the simple “loved” bottle cap.

I rounded the corner and stopped off at The Sweet Shoppe for some delicacies to feast my eyes on. I found this bright and cheery layout, and I’m always a sucker for lemons. Get it? Sucker? LOL

Oh, that FACE!!! I just want to pinch those cheeks!! I don’t know what it is about babies, but they all seem to be entranced by lemons, and even though they don’t like it, they many times grab for more!! I have some pictures that would be perfect for this kit!!! I love the double background, the piling of the lemons, and the cute little pile for the title. This is perfection!!

Next stop: Scrapbook dot com! This is a huge site and a huge busy gallery. After searching and enjoying so many pages, the one I picked is actually from the first one!  Margje posted this amazing layout with so much character! I love the photo with the old-fashioned flying cap and I think what I like most about this page is the TEXTURE!!! I wanted to run my fingers over the screen to see if it was real! The cracked paper, the paint, the scratches – all of them make this page such a treat for the eyes!

I’m getting a little hungry with all my visiting of galleries, so I bet it’s time to have some cookies and tea with the GingerScraps Gals!! I sat down to take a bite of my gingerbread cookie when this delight came into view.  Mother Bear has captured the beauty and the femininity of a twirly dress and a little girl! I love the way she made the picture frame into a window that she is dancing in front of. The flower bunches are beautifully shadowed and perfectly placed. I absolutely LOVE the quote “There are two gifts we should give our children: one is roots and the other is wings. ” As a parent, I sure have that wish for my daughter as well!

Alas, my travels have taken me to my last destination of the day: The Lily Pad.  I was surfing and saw a big ole “LOL!!!!!” and had to click in. The layout was made to showcase Cinderella’s favorite joke! I have never seen this – what an original idea! All her paper stacks, laughing elements, and fun blended background are perfect for this “funny” layout!
