It’s summer break here!  We are gearing up for some vacation time since like many we haven’t done any traveling since the pandemic.  Travel preparations have been fun as our destination requires a negative COVID test even if you have been vaccinated.  So, it’s been a tad fun navigating timeframes to ensure all the requirements are met…..but now it’s time to finish packing and go catch that jet plane first thing Friday morning.  I decided to take a break from laundry and packing…. and browse some galleries.  Hope you enjoy my picks for the day!


Pick Your Destiny-Season Challenge by Dalis

I love art journaling and I love layouts that have very profound and powerful messages.  This stunning layout has just that.  The moodiness of the paper with the bold chevrons grab your eyes first, but then you can’t help but notice the pretty bird with the tiara and then there’s that message….just quietly sitting there reminding you to trust yourself and your wings in flight!

Beyond Happy by bbe

This layout is a stunner.  I love the creative use of the large photos and how they are arranged/layered as the focal point. These large black and white photos just jump off the page and are so beautifully accented with these bold colors and patterns. 


Be Yourself by Ana Santos

I’m always in awe of this artist.  She is always so good at evoking emotion. The extraction is beyond amazing and paired with beautiful shadowing.  The messaging is on point and it’s all wrapped up in these bold beautiful colors which one could argue, that the bold colors symbolize how we should live life….BOLDLY.

Japan by shepherdstudio/catgoddess

I, like many others, absolutely love seeing layouts created by our designers.  I am drawn to Japanese influenced designs, so when I saw this beauty, I had to stop, back up and look again.  I love the mix of patterned papers, the use of the bamboo paint/stamp in the background and the sharp contrast of all the elements and papers with the background.  

Giggles by Dady

The name of this layout only already tells you to go ahead and get that smile ready.  I love the clean design of this layout and love how the focal point is right in the center of the page.  The softness of the kit used is perfect for these sweet photos.  How can you not smile when you see these photos.  It’s like she’s giggling about her own little secret that only her and that  cute little bird know about.

Dream Baby by Trish

How fun, beautifully artsy is this page?  When using a background paper that is heavily worded, placement of photos and elements is everything. This artist nailed it. The blended background with the perfect placement of the photos and elements, allows one to follow the story around the page without feeling overwhelmed.  I also love that the photos are black and white as it complements the grunginess of the background.


Hope you enjoyed my picks for the day.  If you get a moment, stop by and leave them some love!!!

Until next time and see you around the galleries (yep even when I’m on vacay…. I still have to scrap!!! …lol!)
