Friday Night Fab Five: Eye Candy Edition

I was trying to think of something really fun to do for this week's Fab Five and with my father-in-law here for the past few days, I really haven't been getting around all that much except for some blogs here and there.

And that's when it hit me...the blogs I visit showcase so much talent that I decided to highlight some awesome stuff I've seen around the blog-o-sphere. They may even be gals you haven't gotten the chance to visit with yet and you can make a new blog discovery! (Don't you love it when that happens?!) So here they are, in no particular order:

I instantly fell in love with Lynn's layout when I saw it over at Pretty Paper Swirls. I love the quote by Charles Schultz and her attention to details and mastery of everything to do with distressing is amazing to me.

I love Gabrielle's layout at No More Little Monkeys. First of all, look at that gorgeous child! Second, I love the way she used the patterned paper and highlighted it by adding more flowers for dimension.

I adore Beth and this layout at dirty laundry. She's funny, fabulous and oh so creative. This layout is so fun and I love how she's not afraid to use patterns and materials that others might shy away from.

I'm a big fan of layouts that leave a lot of blank space. (Mostly because I'm not brave enough to try it yet!) Erin's layout on her blog just a few scraps & pieces is so clean and fresh looking. And look at that picture!!!

Pinky's blog Much Ado About Nothing is one of the newer blogs I've started stalking but I l-o-v-e her scrapping style. I don't think she has one particular style either. Sometimes it's vintage, sometimes it's clean, sometimes it's chaos, but it's always fabulous.

So there you have it! I have to say it was hard to only pick 5 for this week! I get so much inspiration from all of y'all and can only thank you for sharing your creations with me!

See you next week for another Friday Night Fab Five!

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I can see why they caught your eye!! You have good taste!!

  2. Love the Lo's, several are my favorite Blogs!!!! Great idea to share and introduce us to new sites!!! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by with your kind comments!!!!

  3. Stopping by from SITS! :)

    I love to scrapbook, I just haven't made the time to do it lately ♥

  4. Ooooh! I love the one with the little girl. She is gorgeous. Look at those cute rosy cheeks. Thanks for sharing. Stopping by from SITS to say hello~

  5. Hey girl! You are always so sweet, and one of your friends stopped by my blog, Jocelyn- that made my day! I love all the girls you put up here today!!!!!(I'm not a fan of negative space either! And why does it look good when other people do it but not me? I think it totally intimidates me, but if you try it, I will- promise!!!!)

  6. Loving the fab 5... such great layouts you chose to showcase.
    Just wanted to let you know that I mailed the Friendly Forest RAK out today. I apologize it's going out regular mail and not priority, but I had a bunch of boxes to ship out. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

  7. Those are such great picks!!!!!

  8. Hi Maggi - I'm Mary popping over from SITS. I have been trying to visit the person's blog who posts right before me on roll call every day and today that was you! It gives me an opportunity to visit other blogs I might not know about otherwise.

    I envy the beautiful scrapping projects that scrappers do! Maybe one day I'll venture out and give it a try, though I have heard it can get rather addicting. I'm already that way about cooking and food!! (and books, and gardening, and pets lol...)

    Have a beautiful Sunday!


  9. What a fun & cool idea you did for your blog post today!! I love checking out other peoples LO's!!! Very inspiring!!

  10. I love all those layouts! Great inspiration for me to get scrapping all of my Washington DC and the Wedding photos...Which both were great!
