Today’s GSO, Truly Blessed by LibbysMommy, comes from the gallery at Sweet Shoppe Designs and is truly amazing!
I love everything about this layout, but let’s start with what caught my eye first, the photo! It is a beautiful photo to begin with, but the close crop takes it to a whole new level and highlights the serenity and peace that emanates from her. Cropping photos is such an important part of scrapbooking that we should all strive to do it as well as LibbysMommy has done here.
My next favorite thing is that background paper. It is a simply divine pattern and it shines without overwhelming her layout. The kit is by Kristin Cronin-Barrow, one of the SSD designers, and is a gorgeous. I know I had to have it.
Finally, I love the center composition and the great cluster work. Her use of flowers is gorgeous without being overwhelming. It creates a sense of joy and happiness that is reflected in the world art and journaling. And I love that she journaled on an angle. Just a small touch, but in my opinion, a very important one.
If you aren’t familiar with LibbysMommy, take a look at her gallery here. I’m sure you will find a layout you love too.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope the rest of your weekend is full of moments worth scrapping.
