Happy Tuesday Scrappers!  It’s just beginning to cool down a little bit where we live.  It’s been a very hot summer and we’ll take any break we can get.  We also got some much-needed rain, which perked up all of our flowers and plants.  I hope, wherever you are, that the weather is getting better.  It’s the middle of August, so we should start to see some relief.  I had a great time looking through the galleries to find today’s Standouts.  You want to see them?  Of course, you do – here we go.

Best Life Lessons by Dr. Who by Iowan

How amazing is this page?  There’s SO much to look at.  First of all, I love the background paper with those horizontal rays coming across the page!  It reminds me of a sunburst.  I love the way the “lessons” are itemized on the strips of paper and the title work is stunning!  It takes a while to absorb all of the wonderful details.

Cuteness by Betty Jo

This beautiful image stopped me in my tracks!  This page was created for a photo editing challenge, and I loved reading about the process.  The lighting on the face is so soft and beautiful and the pretty, delicate borders, the flowers on the side of her head and the one-word journaling make this a standout page!

Evening Ritual by Mingo08

Who doesn’t love a beautiful sunset?  This big picture is pure gorgeousness!  The addition of the smaller, framed shots adds to the dimension of the page and even more interest, if that’s possible.  This page has just the right amount of journaling to explain the “evening ritual” and the perfect number of elements.  What an outstanding page!

Simplette Never Ending Summer by Lana Beber

The lovely photograph grabbed my attention, first of all.  I love all of the wonderful clustering on both sides of the photograph.  The blended background makes a simple and elegant statement, maintaining a somewhat clean and simple style, making it a winning combination!

Family Morning River by Shelby

Just look at this little darlin’ sitting on the beach and soaking up the sun. The big photo sets the stage, and the smaller photos just add to it.  The sweet elements around the edges are just the perfect touches to this absolutely adorable page.

Just Hangin’ Out by Grandma Lynnie

Last, but certainly not least, and a “cuteness overload” warning – a baby and fuzzy dogs.  Look at the priceless expression on the baby’s face.  This is truly a magical moment captured on camera.  The doggie ribbon, torn paper and cute little bone add to the perfection of this page.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today.  If you get a minute, please stop by and leave some love for these artists.  You can go straight to the page by clicking on the name of each one.

Thanks for stopping by and keep on scrapping.  You never know when one of your pages might show up on our blog.

  1. Thanks bunches. We just started watching Dr. Who, definitely late to the game, and are addicted. Tangie’s kit was just full of good Dr. who fun. Congratulations to everyone who got mentioned today.

  2. Wow, thank you so much! I’m just fortunate that gorgeous sunsets are something I get to enjoy a few months each year!
