Sorry Kate, I just noticed that darn zero that fell off is sitting at the bottom of the scanned layout! Kate North did a great job of picking colours to compliment her dark photos. Love the pop of orange.
Lego Land! Totally fun, I want to go too! Vicki Wilson's family took a trip here and she did a super job scrapbooking it! I love all the little dots. I also like the traditionally bright lego colours, and the fact that she wrote about who came, but wasn't in any photos.
Wendy Jansen also had dark photos and struggled with how to scrapbook them. She came up with this neat star desgin which keeps the focus on the individual faces!

Carmen Munro altered a file folder! This would make a neat coffee table book. She's created lots of little embellishments on each of the pages.
Collette Lucier really took the challenge seriously on her layout! She's got a handmade shaker box up in the corner, a folded paper flower, and created her own title using her Cricut!
Kate Watt punched flowers to make this gorgeous joy card! Love the mix of blues with the pop of pink and purple.
(Insert shameless blog posting here) Check out my class on June 12! The layout is called "The Good Life" and it's made mostly with the new Noteworthy line from Making Memories. The page is great for any type of happy time photos... mine showcases photos of Ryan's family up at the cabin back home. You get to play with some really fun stuff here - die cut papers, lots of ribbon, textured flowers, and American Craft Thickers. If you haven't used Thickers yet they will blow your mind - once I discovered them I instantly had to have them in every colour and texture. Anyhow, my class is $25, $20 for members and sure to be a good time had by all. Sign up now, and spend an evening with me :)

K&Co Grand Adhesions - dimension without all the work. Gotta love it.
K&Co Sea Glass - what a great line for beach pages. Check out that paper ribbon - totally detailed! I think this will go great with the Reminisce line we already have in.
Prima stamps - I love little individual clear stamps. Less expensive, you dont have to worry about not liking other things in the pack, good for gifts........

Vicki Wizniuk added shine to her card in a different way; she covered a chipboard piece in patterened paper to match her card, sanded the edges and covered it in glossy accents. For more depth, she added a second chipboard flower and a brad.

And now, more contest entries. You guys are all amazing, seriously. Thanks for entering. I know I've said this a thousand times now, but I love your work. Everyone's got their own style and it's great to see it.
Cheryl Pauls created this card. What a great masculine card! The 3 brads help to balance the large deer stamped image. Great use of stamps for the background here as well.
This little bunny was stamped by Danielle Pauls. The cute image is really softened by the organza ribbon.
The lovely Jane Cullen created this layout with Basic Grey paper. I love the mix of embellishments on here as well.
Violet Canning brought in this great card. This could work for a male or female birthday. It's awesome that she took it a little further and stamped the envelope as well.
I want to aplogise to whomever this layout belongs to - we forgot to write down your name! Please let us know so we can give appropriate credit! This layout is a great example of using stamps where you might not have other embellishments that fit your theme.
I should mention that if you'd like a better view of any of the projets you just need to click on the photo for a much larger shot.

Jen Louie's son's handwriting is preserved forever on this keepsake layout. She stamped the orange bracket journaling spot.
June Buburuz stamped several elements on this page. The "Take Time to Enjoy...." stamp and moon in the upper left were stamped with a Tsukineko Glue pad and then glittered. There are small foot prints stamped on the chipboard heart.
Sarah Kurjata felt the bottom half of her layout was missing something, and remembered our weekly contest. This helped her decide on stamping leaves to fill the space.

Carmen Munro did a beautiful job creating this card! The entire background is not preprinted paper - it's ALL stamps. Totally a genious way to use up scraps of paper (like those white sheets you get in your album page protectors and never use).
Kate Watt brought in this card - she created it from the scraps of Lynette's Someone Special kit.I hope to see more projects being brought by, I love all the creative ideas that are out there!!! Keep 'em coming guys!
