Happy Monday!  I know Monday’s can be rough, especially if you have had the weekend off…. so I’m here to spread some Monday evening cheer.   The galleries are bursting with all these gorgeous layouts.  It was so hard making my selections tonight, I could have easily picked all of them….

Ok…all I can say is WOW!  I love how the photo is ripped in half to represent the side of inner self fighting with each other.  Making the photo 2 different tones is brilliant.  The moodiness with the bright colors just further enhances that in reality, this is real life.  We take the good and the bad together and we still have this beautiful life.  Don’t hide the dark, it’s the dark that pushes us to the light.  There is hope and this artist captures reality with the hope she still has….POWERFUL!

I realize that not all may share the intrigue that I have with how our mind works, so my next shout is….

Fun by Shannamay

I love the use of the white background.  It makes these bold geometric shapes just pop of the page.  This looks like pure fun and the artist’s choice in papers and elements captures the full essence of fun!

Wintry Weather by Bryanna

This layout captures the innocent wonder of a little babe all snuggled in warm as he takes in the world around him.  The white on white cluster is stunning!

I just realized that all these white backgrounds really appealed to me today…. maybe a white Christmas is on my brain (except I’m in Florida, so not happening here. LOL).

Day 3 Lift Challenge by DonnaRCarroll

All these super cute adorableness in the galleries.  I just can’t help but point them out.  I love all the paints used in the background and the blending of the larger photo.  These adorable photos are perfectly placed and those subtle splashes of red are perfect.

Universal Studios Vacation by KingsQueen82

How awesome is this?  First of all, the time it takes to strategically place these elements is worthy of a shout out on its own. Such a clever a fun way to document one’s vacation.

12 Tags of December. Tag #2 by DivaMom96

All this wonderful purple caught my eye first. I LOVE purple and then I really looked at this marvelous tag.  How gorgeous is this??  Look at that cluster in the lower left corner of the tag.  How about the paints around the edge of the tag.  Based on the title, I can only assume there are 10 more tags to go and now I’m curious to check those out as well.  I’m still swooning here…

I hope you enjoyed my selections for the night.  I hope you are as inspired by them as I am.  If you have a moment to spare, swing by and leave these wonderful artists some love and holiday cheer!


See you around the galleries!
