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!!!
