And now I am tired!

But how about a giveaway for fun!??!
I've got a flat rate box packed full of stuff including a couple of idea books.
Leave me a comment telling me your favorite layout from this month & I will draw a winner in a couple of days!

I Love This (from 5/8) gets my vote - I love how you repurposed a class kit :) AND managed to get a bunch of different pictures in ... and have it look super cute!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I really like all your pages, but my favorite is the "cutest bee on the block". I love the way you matched the paper with the pictures, and yet with such bold paper - it's still the pictures you see.
Great job! You are inspiring.
Thanks for the giveaway! Hope I win!! ;) Sue

I like all of your layouts! I really like the vertical titles, as seen in Grampa's Shoulders...

I love all your pages, especially the 2-pagers...I ususlly have a lot of photos, so those LOs inspire me most...So I vote for Pumpkin Patch. Or, Fishermen...no, wait...they're all too good! ;D Thanks for sharing your creations, and for having a giveaway!

Hi Gretchen - confession time -I'm a "lurker". I've enjoyed your blog for almost a year now! In fact for the entire month of May I've had my morning coffee while looking at your "layout a day" posts....thanks for all the inspiration! My favorite was the "not so little anymore" layout. I will definitely be scrapliftling that one for some photos I have of my granddaughter Mia Kate.

Ok, I like all of them but my favorite is May 10th - I'm with Papa!!!

Deana said...

My favorite was on the 17th! Love your pages, thanks for the inspiration.

Katie Burnett said...

excellent GMac. I just wanted to tell you how awesome the book was. I don't want the flat rate box...unless there is some NS in it!

Sandy said...

I really like the pumpkin patch and the best place to be. I would love to be laying on someones shoulder, how secure is that?

susanv said...

I have got to work on my little boy's baby book (he is 2!) and you have given me lots of great ideas this month. I think my favorite is the pumpkin patch spread. I am a sucker for those fall colors!

owliecupcake said...

Way to go, Gretchen! My fav if probably from May 4 or 6, but they are all super cute.

Nat said...

ok - hard to pick just one, but I'm going with the Pumpkin Patch, love inspiring 2 page LO's. I don't do many 2 pg LO's, and would like to do more. Love these! Way to go on the LOAD challenge. i did it last Oct (or was it nov), anyway, and I had a BLAST!

Tracy said...

I love the one on 5/14 titled "Almost One". So incredibly cute!!

Kirby said...

i love your style, so tough call...i'm going to go with 'fishermen.' 'cutest bee on the block' is a close second, though!

Lee-Ellen said...

i love the KI cousins layout! but you know i love everything you do girl!

elissa said...

I really love 1st Thanksgiving because I liked how you used that line of paper from Cosmo Cricket on a Thanksgiving page.

Heather said...

WAY TO GO!!! Congrats on completing your goal and more!

I have to say without a doubt my fave is "First Snow". I love how the tone on tone allows the picture to stand out but the snowflakes still hold their own! Beeeeautiful!

April V said...

Gretchen... I love this idea.. 31 pages in 31 days.. my favorite layout is #17. I love the colors and the flowers. It is a page I will use as inspiration for sure!!! Thanks!!

*reyanna klein* said...

Man! You had SO many good ones! I don't think I can really choose *a* favorite! But I liked "Almost One," "Oh, this Little Boy of Mine," "Brandy," and I love this "With Grammy" one too! Hee!

Hi Gretchen, you made it. Loved to see your book come together and being able to follow that on your blog. I love the lo of may 15th the most and I would love to see more of your little Disney album (may 11th). Bye Irene
