Hey, everyone! Happy Monday, Lu here! Hope ya’ll had a wonderful weekend… I’m back today to do LOTW, which is always so much fun for me. Tough choices, but still… I love it! I’ll tell you what else I love, as I have a hard time resisting this little guy & his mama’s awesome layouts, lol! Congrats to be2be (Winston, too, of course) and their best buds layout:
I’ve been following Winston since he first appeared in the gallery in early September. He seems like such a rascal & is a bit irresistible, I think! Oh my… the pics of this little dude just cracks me up! Now, how cute is he snuggling up to Richie Rich? But this guy has some antics, and I’m hoping to see more “In the Life of Winston” in the gallery! Once I get past the pics, I love to study the “just so” touches of be2be. For this layout, I love how the colors from the Richie Rich doll are echoed by the colors & elements of the Festival kit, (available as a free download at the Shabby Princess site). I love the clean simplicity and use of negative space. That is a technique that I’ve rarely attempted, much less mastered, lol! So I always appreciate it when I see it. What works so wonderfully here are the colorful buttons that reinforce the multi-color polka dot paper, the accent paisley paper joined directly to that adorable photo, as well as the pins to secure it. I struggle with “keeping things simple” (just ask my husband), but love the impact that it makes. In their own unique way, be2be’s layout’s stand out & speak volumes… just check out her gallery to see what I mean. Congrats again, be2be! Can’t wait to see what Winston has been up to, lol!
Thanks to everyone posting all the fantastic layouts in the gallery this week, we love perusing every day to be inspired & see what is new! Have a wonderful Monday… and check back in with us for tomorrow’s Product Spotlight. Happy Scrappin’!
