Good evening and Happy Tuesday!

My first pick of the evening is Faded Days by Adryane.  This is such a lovely style, full of blending and soft colors.  The elements are expertly clustered and shadowed, allowing the beautiful black and white photo to shine.   Days may fade, but this layout will last forever.

Next up we have Alyssa by our very own Cherylndesigns.  Like me, Cheryl is one of the newest members of the GSO Blog Team.  If you are familiar with Cheryl’s layouts, you know her gorgeous granddaughters are often featured in them.  Here, I love the big photo format and Alyssa’s gorgeous smile!  The yellow paint and elements are wonderful complements, as is the whimsical pumpkin for October.


It is no secret; I love digital art and I love it when digital scrapbooking kits are used to make gorgeous works of pure art.  In Scandinavian Folklore, Peppapig has created such a beautiful digital illustration – I love her cut out digital flowers, the rhythmic patterns, and gorgeous colors!

October Beauty by KayTeaPea has lots of wow-power.  The design is superb with lots of flow from the tree photo to the leaf, journaling, and paint splatters. This layout is wonderfully arty yet clean and simple at the same time – what a combo!

“Eeek!” is right! Lol.  Michele’s journaling in her Arachnophobia! layout made me giggle. I love her mailbox picture and giant spider too! Plus, I like the creative use of all those fabric tags. Michele’s layout is a perfect mix of visual and written storytelling.

Last but not least, the last pick for the evening is Cozy by Aussiegirl.  Can you say “mega-clusters?”  Holy smokes, aren’t they gorgeous? I love the sweet fall vibes mixed with the monarchs.  Unfortunately, I have not seen many monarchs this year – they typically migrate through Texas mid-October.  However, I will enjoy their beauty in Aussiegirl’s layout.


My dear digi-friends and community – I hope you enjoyed this evening’s picks as much as I did.  Please have a good night and enjoy the remainder of your week. If you have a few moments to spare, please leave some love in the galleries!  Each title is hyperlinked for convenience.
