Sorry for the 2 deleted comments I wasn't sure if 2 comments needed to be made or 1 so I combined them into 1 - didn't want to be disqualified.

Happy 1st Blog-aversary!

My guess is gonna be 87,256 visits.

I love the reader reveals - gives inspiration to every scrapper wether they are a beginner or an advanced scrapper. I also love your templates!

I think your fav might be the BEACH Template

Great blog, I am glad I found you!


Next onto designer showcase: pages with nature! This was a fun week. I asked the contributors to either use nature on their layout (such as leaves, feathers) or to feature layouts with nature in them!

Dolores is up first! She created three stellar digital pages with nature on page and about nature! The first page features so many cool "outdoor" items! She used the digital kit: Pumpkin Spice by Jenn Barrette to create her amazing page.

Dolores' next page features a super fun outdoor photo as well as nature type elements! I love how this page turned out ;) She used the digital kit: Bewitching by Kristin Cronin-Barrow to complete her page.

Her last page displays a gorgeous fall setting and beautiful fall elements! What a great page! She used the digital kit: Splendiferous by Jenn Barrette to create her digital page.

This next page is Cathy! She shares with us super fun apple picking nature photos and a really fun design! Cathy used one of the apples to stamp a journal spot. Love this technique.

Heather created two amazing nature themed pages! I love all of the neat elements on the first page which really gives it that outdoorsy feel! The second page featured some yummy things to eat from nature. Two great pages ;)

Lastly, we have a gorgeous butterfly page by Nancy! Butterflies are one of my favorite animals (well, bugs that is) and I love how she scrapped these gorgeous creatures!

I hope you have a chance to scrap some nature pages soon!!
