Sometimes the holidays slow us down in our scrapping, but that doesn't seem to be the case for these talented scrappers! The CT has been scouting the gallery and we have seen some gorgeous things. Here are some that caught our eyes:
Just Hangin' Around by TheresaND
This caught Ronny's eye right off the bat. She really enjoys the white space design with the photo and elements seeming to fill the page with a perfect design. Her favorite part is the curved photo, it's unique and makes this layout standout.
Very Merry by jenniwren32
Janell giggled with delight when she saw this adorable gift card holder in the gallery. The details on this little guy are sure to be a crowd pleaser this holiday season. The stitching is perfect and she adores the fabric tuft on his hat!
I did it! by txbelle26
This layout really caught Kristianne's eye, with the loving sentiment and different kinds of lacing worked throughout the page. Beautifully done.
RIP by evilqueen
Rachel loves this layout because of its fun Halloween spirit. Halloween spooks, spiders, and sparks are sprinkled throughout the page and on that fantastic tree making it very fun to look at. In addition, the photos are well composed. She loves the little actress in them. She says she couldn't help but be stuck in this page's web when she saw it in the gallery.
