Hello, my fellow digi scrappers!!! I hope this day finds you well!! I have been a bit of a bi-scrapper lately, so it’s been fun to see the pages in the galleries to remind me of just how much I love scrapping digitally!! I do not have the “real paint” skill down yet, so it was a really comforting feeling to dive back into my “home” of digi-scrappers! You all inspire me so much!!!! Also, did you feel it… the first touches of fall?? I did last night as we walked our doggies. I cannot WAIT for pumpkins, leaves, cool breezes, and…whatever Fall I’ll get here in the desert. LOL

So enough of me blabbing – let’s get to the reason we are here: FABULOUS LAYOUTS!!!

Mary Kate “Grade One” 

This little gem just made me smile!!!! I love how she used her group photo in the middle and made everything look like it was laid down on a flat surface! The colors are great for a heritage page, and I love the newsprint framed school and the great paint splatters.  This gives me ideas on how to scrap my younger days as I have pictures just like that! Great job!!!

Kim Pay “Embrace the Change”

This page has so much textural goodness here!! I love her thick gesso splashes and the way she used a mask to center those beautiful fall trees, yet make it feel like it’s painted onto the gesso! The cute little flower cluster is a wonderful touch, as is the text underneath. The title tops off it’s greatness with that FABULOUS font for the word “Change”.

MaureenReynolds “New Adventures”

Ok, this page literally made my heart beat faster! It is the cutest thing EVER!!! I love how she portrays the love of a father, and the love of his daughter back in this one simple photo! The blending is great, the colors she chose are perfect, and I love the text strip cluster. She has such wonderful texture in her background, and I love the ghosted paper roses.

Gina “Let Me Tell You a Story”

This page by Gina is a stunner! She really has the knack for clean and simple, yet artsy as well!!! I love all the scribbles in the background and the ghosted text behind the ECU photo. I really like the splash of pink with the flair and the roses, and the SKU strip was a great addition.

Sara Horton “Pines of Rome”

Ok, as a Christmas junkie I fully admit to clicking on this because it looked Christmas-y! However, I find it beautiful in its own right!!! Then I looked deep into her journaling and found that this was at the Villa Borghese, a place in Rome that I have been to!! I love the pine cluster and the wonderful acorns and pine cones, and the touch of the ribbons behind the cluster. Her shadowing is wonderful and the hanging stars are a great touch!

Mother Bear “This is Us”

Have you ever seen a happier page with families???? I absolutely ADORE the different poses of the photos and how she used a photo treatment for a sketch for the big photo. The colors are fun and striking, and her little clusters all over are impeccably shadowed. BRAVA!!!!

Well, I guess our time is over for now. Have an amazing day and I’ll catch you again in a few weeks!!! Please take a few moments and give these ladies props on their pages. The names and photos are linked to their gallery where you can leave comments.
