This card by Ann-Marie just makes me happy. I love how she backed some parts of the KI lace paper with scraps from the Apple Orchard kit...it's just a simple touch that really makes this card stand out. ErinB's layout often catch my eye, and I just love the simplicity of this one...the lace paper trim adds just a touch of femininity to this layout and the cluster of journaling die-cuts at the bottom doesn't detract from her very cool pics of Big Ben.
ahhhh...this lovely one from SimplyTam speaks to me, lol. let's see...October Afternoon, check. sweet pic, check. one of my fave Thickers, check. her journaling is great because it's honest...many of us would like to believe that moments like these happen often, but that isn't always the case when you have little ones running about. another reminder to scrap/journal about the not-so-perfect moments...they're just as important as the picture perfect ones.
now Nichoda really pulled at my heartstrings a bit with this one. first of all, I love that she's such an involved Auntie to her nieces/nephews...they really are very lucky to have her in their lives. Second, the relief you can 'hear' in her journaling is just so touching. add to that some distressed paper and stitching and i'm sold. i love when people think outside the box...and the cropping of this photo by ScrapEvangel in conjunction with her journaling to match is a great example of that. the picture is cool to start...but then the unusual cropping just made it jump out at me from the gallery.
so make sure to take advantage of the new faves feature...it will make a great strating point when you're having one of those mojo-less days!!
