Our June gallery is such a treat as we get to see not only new layouts, but also their evolution. As we look through the layouts one last time, let's think of one thing that we could do based upon each layout. One way in which we could be inspired by the inspired.

Thank you for the increased number of comments! It is so lovely to hear from you and to better develop our relationships. It's so fun to check as the day goes on and see that our hard work is appreciated! Thank you so much.
Before we go, we wanted to take a minute to say goodbye and thank you to Two Peas In a Bucket. We read the sad news this week that they are closing up shop. And we are so sad. So very sad. For years they were an industry leader. Ahead of their time, they created message boards that allowed us, as scrapbookers and people, to connect with one another. Their galleries allowed us all to improve as we could study and learn from those more talented. Their store helped launch companies as their Garden Girls showed what could be done with them. And their Garden Girls have been some of the most incredibly talented. Kristina and Jeffrey had vision and talent and used it to alter the face and the landscape of the scrapbooking world. Thank you, to both of them for creating a community for us and for forging an online scrapbooking home for so very many of us. We will miss you!
