Gallery Week

When the creative team members ventured into the giant sea of layouts in our Sketch Support gallery, it was not an easy task to pick a favorite! Today we've got Katrina Hunt and Christy Arthur's picks to share with you and I think you'll quickly see why they were favorites!

"Mother's Day Picnic" by Sherri Thompson
based on Two-page Sketch #17
Picked by creative team member Christy Arthur

The things I loved about Sherri's layout:

1. the colors - I love the neutral grey cardstock with the bright colors of the sun and butterflies against it. I also liked the colors of the additional paper and borders behind the photos.

2. the butterfly chain - love how it perfectly and so delicately drapes across the bottom of the layout. So simple, understated and perfectly lovely. Plus the two tone butterflies are always a favorite of mine!

3. the giant sun - love the diecut and how it adds just the right amount of color and interest against the cardstock. It fills in the space on the right side of the layout and adds so much to the layout. Love it.

"Camping With Our Cat" by Laurel Seabrook
Picked by creative team member Katrina Hunt

Laurel's layout caught my eye for the sheer fact it had a cat in it! I love the fact that she is documenting that they take their cat with them camping. I don't know of a lot of people that do that!

The pictures she used you could tell were candid moments and sometimes those are the best ones.

The banner in the corner with the clouds is a super cute embellishment. Layouts that have those type of embellishments in the corner tend to catch my eye. The mix of elements is a great one without being too overpowering. And I like the fact she used different fonts/letters on her layout. That is always a good way to add some fun to your layouts, no matter what you are scrapping!

Great job Laurel, I love your cards, but you are an awesome layout girl too!
