G’Day everyone!!! Hope the weekend is being kind to you guys, in England the weather has not, but after so many bad news, ill health and some more distractions to my scrapping, some good news in the form of an amazing lady that started working for me has us celebrating, and more time to scrap! LOL Anyway, as always, you all give me SO MUCH hard work on trying to pick just a few pages from the galleries, so much beauty, so much thought and reflection, family life or fantasy…these pages are superb and I can’t wait to share them with you!

PLEASE NOTE: Remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking on the name of the page and author ( not the actual image) Please do spare a minute or two to leave some love, we all know how much of a difference it can make, always, even more so in these crazy times we are living!

I’m getting started with one of my most treasured Queens of Elegance, Sucali with When the Clouds Part. The layered cards, the gorgeous black & white photo treatment, the word art placed on the background paper and the card coming together with such a beautiful, hopeful message, I’m in LOVE with those key-ring dates too!!! Brilliant shadows to complete Susanne’s master piece!!!

More incredible elegance in this awesome page from Hanah aka Vrielinkie with Celebrating a Dream Come True. Love her take on the already awesome template, such a fabulous palette, soft and not over powering the photos that, especially taking that is a major event, should be the star. There is more accent on the elegance with the choice of black background, those corner’s painted flowers are just perfect here. I am so amazed by the amount of patterns, also the number of paper pieces and elements…and still the page is such a clean feel, Awesome!!!

This is one of those treasures, pages we should print and hang on a wall. This is Susie aka Pachimac with Music is my Muse. The changing colors in the background give light to this awesome album cover inspired page, if you know me, you know my passion for using the whole elements pack, and here she is done that and further… brilliantly chosen flowers, the perfection of staying within the color range with so much in the page is marvellous, the butterflies almost hidden are a beautiful discovery and the use of paints are both absolutely wonderful, the guitar being queen even when placed at the side, and the cursive text in the background give it even more appeal…. fabulous all over!!!!

Another super favorite of all of us here at the blog, Marilyn aka mcurtt with Get Your Read On.  There is so much feel in my heart with this page that I’m kinda struggling to give it proper words, don’t want to fall on the same words over and over but…. impressive, absolute elegance, wonderfully thought page and much more … The gorgeous black and white with the red accents, the pick of book cover which seems to shine calling the eye, the super cute library and all the word art, the amount of different textures and, even with all that , there is awesome blank space…..I better show you the page because I could keep talking!!!!!

Net is always marvellous HeatherB with Monster in the Middle. This is actually a double pager, you can see the other side HERE, I am impressed by the perfection of both, very different pages but unified by a fun, happy family memory, which Heather does in such an inspiring way, (oh and look at the credits’ list!!!) The choices of colors for the letters, those shadows that give dimension and her always elegant clusters, all completed with the journaling and the awesome sprinkles/paint myst as a base giving even more light to it….that continue in the other side with lots of photos perfectly combined and the memory of a day of family fun is capture to perfection!

Next is one of my most recent discoveries, Kjersti with Be Happy. There is a number of scrappers Sarita (DD) calls my Cover People, as in glossy magazine cover, because there is external beauty but the kind transformed into even more by the beauty that comes from within, shining and taking the pages to a higher level…  well, this one is one of those. The gorgeous mother and daughter photo, the wonderful surroundings, nature shining with those smiles, I wont go into it because I need to get some sleep, but…cowboy boots!!!! LOVE! So, back to the page: There is fashion great taste, gorgeous layering, clusters perfectly placed, marvellous management of green on green, those stitches, the shadows….. the whole thing is amazing, and then there is the journaling that makes it be even more a soulful page… absolutely awesome overall!!

I should be stopping here, but there are a couple of pages I could not let go, so I’m gonna share them. One is Boss Lady by hichchei, such an amazing message that comes across in every way, the photos,  OH those glasses!!!!!! It really looks like the products were made with these pictures in mind! Again, we find here beauty outside and that one that comes from within, that reaches the eyes in that cheeky expression and continues with the marvellous clusters, those borders, the fabulous shadows….even a sprinkle off glitter that accents even more so the spirit of the page! I’m always in awe of those who scrap everyday life into wonderful art pieces!!!!

And as always, last but not least, a blast from the past, a talented lady scrapper I had not seen in years has come back and is shining even more than she did before….! Is tanteva with You Think You Can Fly This Thing (even the title is absolute marvel!) Love her passion for art journal and fantasy scrapping as much as her more everyday pages, and this one is literally shining! The perfectly combined elements, the creation of lights that expand, the fun, the beauty, the creativity …again, one of those I would hang on my wall!!! FABULOUS!!!!

And now yes, I will leave you to get inspired by these fantastically gifted ladies, please,(once again!) remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking on the name of the page and author ( not the actual image) Please do spare a minute or two to leave some love, we all know how much of a difference it can make, always, even more so in these crazy times we are living!
