First, remember our super fun Place in Time blog contest this week. All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog or on Facebook and you could be our randomly chosen winner! Here is the great prize you could win:

Now, let's jump into some creative inspiration! First, we have a wonderful layout from Gloria Stengel using An ABC Primer. "I created this page for my husband's little cousin. I added a 'clipboard' tag so that his mom could journal on this page. I inked and embossed the train track border, and then I attached alphas to spell Cody's name. " - Gloria Stengel

I'm a huge fan of ABC Primer...so much so that I have bought 3 12x12 pads! Do you think I'm obsessed? LOL These are both such great projects. The layout is gorgeous. Love the pen nib. And that little bookmark tag is so sweet!

What great projects. Love the collection but then I love all of the G45 collections.

Love todays projects!!

It is sad to see you use papers that are out of print. Have you ever thought of reprinting some of the older ones? I have seen some Alice I would love to get hold of. I used my last sheet of Curtain Call for a birthday card and I hated to use it. I am now buying extra pads of the new papers so I will have spares. I love your papers and thank you for your talent to give them to us!

Fabulous projects today. I love the vintage feel for both projects and paper!

I really want to win

Love this layout Ms Gloria .. also love the tag by Ms Kristen .. thank you both for sharing your amazing talent!

Absolutely love! ABC Primer just rocks the house :) one of the classics!

Fabulous work,ladies. Thank you for your inspiration.
