happy Monday (or whatever day it is for you, lol)! SP here this morning with our new LAYOUT OF THE WEEK! Well, I should correct myself and ‘say’ layoutS of the week :o) You guys know me…I never seem to be able to stick with just one (so not fair to the other girls on the team…I know, I know LOL)…but I have a GOOD reason (or two) this week! First, I’m not around much on the BLOG anymore (more on that another day!)…so I have to really enjoy it when I am, lol…and, second…all THREE of these pages are REALLY, REALLY fabulous, lol (as always)! Actually – ALL of the pages from the gallery this week are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G…truly, I just spent the past hour looking through the gallery (it’s Saturday afternoon as I’m typing this, lol), and was BLOWN AWAY by the skill, creativity and talent of ALL of YOU! But, as per usual…we have to limit LOTW to one (or three, lol)…and here is my ‘official’ selection for the week, LOL!
Just LOOK at this handsome little man, CONNOR! These photos ‘steal the show’ for sure – but the layout is totally ‘worthy’ as well! There is a simplicity to it, but at the same time, it is perfectly embellished and titled! The vertical lines really draw your eye in…and gives us something a little different from the norm (horizontal page)! Clever, cute and unique – LOVE it :o) Congrats mrskatylady, and thank you for sharing this little ‘gem’ with us this week! Girls – be sure to check out her gallery…it is FABULOUS and inspiring!
Now, how about a little more ‘eye candy’?! These are my other two ‘picks’ from the week…ENJOY :o)
So you see…I could not resist the gorgeous layout and heartfelt words that crysowens shared with us in her MOM’S HISTORY layout! It is gorgeous and perfect in every way! From the super feminine look and style of the page…to the LOVE that you can feel…and that beautiful photo…it was a ‘shoe-in’ :o) Here’s a closer look…
And then…we have this amazing page by past GALLERY GIRL, Five17Creations (Kim)! Seriously…look at her brand new baby boy, Samuel :o) Not only is he beyond precious and totally adorable…but WOW on the photo and layout (not to mention the perfect scripture)! I could not let this page pass without a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Kim and her beautiful family! Little Samuel looks absolutely angelic and soooooo peaceful (just nothing as cute as a sleeping baby, huh?) - I LOVE it (melt)! I keep repeating to myself…YOU ARE NOT HAVING ANOTHER CHILD…YOU ARE NOT HAVING ANOTHER CHILD…YOU ARE NOT HAVING ANOTHER CHILD, lolol…but OH MY does this amazing page make me think about it (well, the PRECIOUS baby boy does…and the AMAZING page only adds to it, lol)! Fabulous job, Kim…and HUGE congrats to you! Can’t wait to see lots of little Samuel layouts :o)
So, there you have it! CONGRATS to all three of this week’s ‘winners’ – enjoy your $10 gift cards to the Shabby Shoppe…emailed this morning – be sure to check SPAM folders if you don’t see it :o) As I always say, I could have EASILY chosen 40 or so pages to feature as LOTW, lol :o) But, there is always next week, right?! It’s just that you guys seem to get even better and better, week after week (how is that possible?!)! So, our job only gets tougher, lol :o) But we are up for the challenge…and look forward to all of your amazing pages…so keep ‘em coming…and THANK YOU for being part of the Shoppe family!
That’s all for me today…I hope the week is off to a great start for everyone! Beckie will be back here on Wednesday to inspire you…until then…XOXO — SP :o)
