Next up is this dazzling Olde Curiosity Shoppe layout by Robin Shakoor. This layout is beyond beautiful with its classic vintage style. This is another gorgeous example of layering papers and embellishments to give true depth and dimension to your LO. You can see how perfectly Olde Curiosity Shoppe blends with the outstanding central photo. This LO really is like stepping back in time! Here is what Robin has to say about her marvelous creation!

"This is my favorite photo of my aunt Ellie as a young girl.  I just love the backgrounds they used for photos back then.  I used “Mercurial Masterpiece” from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection to create a frame for my page.  I inked the inside of the frame with Distress Ink (Barn Door).  The photo is a copy so I inked it with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to give it an aged effect.  Next I began layering my embellishments using 3-D flowers and Graphic 45 chipboard buttons.  This collection is amazing and when using it you will find that your crafting possibilities are endless." -Robin Shakoor

With all the outstanding layouts this week, it almost makes me want to start scrapbooking again...we'll see.

Three more beautiful layouts. Feeling so inspired!

These are all sooooooo beautiful! Wow!

Loving the layouts this week!

Beautiful layouts!

Robin's layout is SO colorful! I don't understand how she was able to put that much color and "stuff" on a page and still have the photo stand out - maybe because the photo was b/w? I would love to learn more about making the photos the focus and still be able to use all your wonderful products to make beautiful pages!

The talent of your design team never ceases to amaze me! These layouts are WONDERFUL :)

I love this sketch! Thank you!
