It's GSO Time!

Happy April!!  Can you believe another month is here?  March was pretty chaotic, but one good thing about this quarantine is that I’m passing the time by looking through the gallery and saving my favorite layouts for later inspiration.  I know that when activities restart, my time will be limited once again and I’ll need all the help I can get to scrap layouts quickly!

So let me show you some amazing eye candy I found.  This first layout is by Intense Magic:

I love how she scrapped the week and then journaled about each picture in an easily read paragraph.  You can follow the story quite well and feel a bit sorry for the little one with the bite mark!  Plus the QR code was a great way to show off how shadows can keep that yucky snow around for days!!

Next is a fun page by EHStudios:

Aren’t her paper choices perfect?  They are colorful and really tie all the elements together as well.  And that little cluster is just as sweet as that smiling baby!

Here is an action packed photo by Iowan:

She has so many photos on one page, but her storyboard look really keeps the eyes from being overwhelmed.  I love how she used paint to help her text show up on the patterned background paper too.  What a clever idea!

Check out this layout by Angela Toucan:

I love dark, rich colors on this page as well as her title work!  But since I am the mother of two boys, I particularly love that these pictures are about the disassembling and reassembling of the scooter.  May her boys be more attentive to details than mine when it comes to putting things back together! 😊

Finally, I wanted to show off this page by BevG:

I am so jealous that she and her friends are scrapping together.  I love the humor in this layout as well as the artistic title work and stamps.  How fun!!

Well I hope you enjoyed these amazing layouts and that you’ll take the time to leave some love in the gallery.  We could all use some positive encouragement during these crazy times!  May you and your families stay healthy and happy and I’ll be back in May with some more Stand Outs!

Hey there! How is your week going? Staying home? Getting tired of it all? Well, at least we can scrap. I'm a homebody so it's not getting to me too much. My kids, on the other hand, are another story. They are ready to see friends and resume normal activities.

I did have some fun connecting with some of you all during TLPs World Connectdness Event. It was sort of put together quickly last week and I jumped at the opportunity to be able to connect with everyone during this time of isolation. I did a live scrap/chat yesterday and scrapped these pages to show the process of how I scrap my weekly pages. I did record that and hope to share it soon. Upload speeds around these parts are iffy so I have to find a good time to upload when my hubby isn't working and nobody has on-line classes (yes, even homeschoolers do some work on-line!).

So, as far as week 13 goes, we stayed home...again. Celebrated a birthday! Thankfully we have a large family so it sort of felt like a birthday party. We continued on with a normal school routine (it does my kids, and myself, good to keep to a semi-normal routine), zoomed with friends, took on-line drawing and chess classes, read outside by the fire and exercised in the garage.
