Tuesday’s Savings and Inspiring Gallery Stand Out’s

Happy Tuesday!  So did you get the results you were wanting from Punxsutawney Phil? I was hoping for an early Spring, I have had enough of Winter.  I want the warm sun,  sound of the waves crashing, and my behind planted in the Sand!   Enough of my dreaming for now,  lets get on with the savings and inspiring…..

This week’s Tuesday deal is Captured, is Paula’s take on a vintage photography session. I know we all have a few of those old family photo’s, you know the ones that your kids look at and say Did you really wear your hair like that? or check out those funny looking clothes you dressed us in. My reply to them is “just wait until your kids ask you the same question when they hit your age”.   I remember doing the same thing to my parents at that same age.  Captured has color palette of blues and grays with just a pop of yellow that will definitely go with all those blue and gray background they used back in the day!  It will also go great with family photo sessions that are now taken on the beach, in the park, or any place they can image to take them.

Now for the Inspiring….

Our first Gallery Stand Out for February comes from our CT Praiser, Amy.  It is from  creativechaos, titled  Life is Good!  Amy loved the way Creativechaos used the different papers, along with her simple cluster and white space.  We also love her reason why life is good, that cutie in the photo!

Creativechaos used Keystone Scraps, ”Life is Good” , a collab with Seatrout Scraps Congratulation Creativechaos on creating such a stunning layout and thank you for sharing it with us!   Please email Paula at Keystonescraps@yahoo.com with GSO 2/3/2015 in the subject line to claim your coupon to the Keystone Scraps gottaPixel store.

Thanks for stopping by and keep posting your layouts in the Keystone Scraps Designer Gallery.  You never know when you will be the next gallery stand out!  Stop back for Thursday’s  Thoughts & Tutorials  to find out our next Gallery Stand out post. (90)
