Hi! I hope your weekend is starting off nicely and that you’ve got time to check out some really wonderful layouts! It’s weeks like this that make blogging the GSOs an absolute joy! So many beautiful layouts in the gallery this week and many ended up in the GSO thread.
Michelle (msbrad) nailed the May 1st journaling challenge with this first gorgeous layout. It was nominated by Debby (debbysrose) who excitedly said, “I have one, I have one! This layout by Michelle is awesome, such a lovely tribute to her Mom and capturing such an important part of both of their lives. The kit was perfect, the extraction AMAZING, the layering something else.”
“I just stumbled upon this page in the gallery. How stinkin’ cute is this little guy? The page is stunning with the clustering and color choices to accent the photo. Just beautiful!” said Kate when she treated us to this layout by Gail (gwalters). And Gail had a second layout chosen for GSO, too! Be sure to check it out in the gallery.
Kate was on a roll and nominated this adorable layout by scrappinnewbie. She said, “I also found this one, I must have a thing for little ones at the moment, because here’s another stunning page with another little cutie! I love the pattern paper combinations and color choices, it really makes the page pop.”
This next layout by mhreen08 caught Olga’s (zinzilah) eye for its “vibrant colours and a feel of happiness.” She said, “beautifully created piece of art, I like it more than Warhol’s as yours has colourful splashes that create a happy look!” The photo effect is amazing and colors fabulous!
Gail paid it forward and nominated this next amazing layout that was was inspired by this month’s Ad Challenge. Gail said, “This layout by Dawn (Aussiegirl) is eye-catchingly awesome. I love the whole concept of the photo, and the way she created the layout with it. The color scheme and composition are great and she did a perfect job with the selective coloring. Very nice!!
Lastly, Jessica (Kramer.zoo) chose this precious layout. She said, “I keep looking at this LO by mrspotts!! The photo blend is beautifully done and the small photo cluster is wonderful!! Simply beautiful!!” I love the stitched edges and the title work is so perfect!
