I'm a Gem...again!

Wowsers!  I was chosen as one of Scrapbook Challenges Gallery Gems once again.  I needed this bit of good news after the week I have had.  You can check out my layout and the others on their blog here. 

The layout chosen was one of my very favorite from last weekend's crop at Sauder's Historic Village.  There's a few reasons it stands out to me:
1. I used bright colors - I have come to accept that I am not a pastel kind of person.
2. I used multiple embellishments - brads, flowers, and buttons (my favorite)
3. I had only one photo to focus on - I usually cannot decide on what photo I want to use to tell my story and end up clutter the layout with a ton; but my son's expression in this one photo says it all

Now, to be fair, this awesome layout was not of my own making.  I was totally inspired by a layout titled "Adore" over at the Studio Jullene blog.  I get inspiration from a lot of places, and I always try to share when I actually remember where it comes from!  So a big THANK YOU to Jullene!!!


  1. Congrats for being featured. Your layout is fantastic. You're right about the look on your son's face - priceless.

  2. Congratulations on your gem award!! Thanks for stopping by the linking party. I wanted to stop by here to let you know your blog comments are set to no reply. If you ever want to change that I have a tutorial on the right side bar of my blog.

    Have a great night

    1. Thanks Karen! I didn't realize what my settings were - all fixed now:)
