(Layout made with the Core Impressions cardstock and the April WIP Kit--simply because I can't post without a picture--ha! Journaling: Witnessing you come into your own has been a fascinating experience for me. When I met you 25 years ago, I couldn't have known the husband or father you would become. Your evolution suits you. Your wit and humor are still understated. The way you love me and our children without hesitation or condition is genuine. Your unassuming manner is a testiment to your spirit. You remain to be the best person I know. And you still make me weak in the knees.)

I've been noticing a few trends lately. Maybe it is just me.
*Purple. This line and this line both have my affection. It used to be the least favorite color to work with by a lot of people. Now it is everywhere!
*Lots of grey and yellow combos. These alphas and this paper line are delish.
*Hand stitching is all over the place.
*Lots of flowers and ornately embellished pages (handmade and store bought alike.)
*Using two or more types of fonts/stickers in a title.
*Handwritten journaling.
*Digital elements and/or hybrid scrapping
*Border punches, border punches, border punches. Everywhere.
*Single-page layouts
*Texture on everything--is anyone else addicted to the embossing templates like I am?

What have you been into lately? Feel free to share your favorite trend right now!!

Enjoy your day!!

Awe, I love this layout and the journaling! I'm in love with the textured cardstock and I blame you for my recent addiction to border punches!

That layout is really fantastic!!! Trends wise, I don't think that I've seen a trend that I don't like! It's obvious banners are everywhere, doilies. Personally I hope the cute animal trends never fade :)

Love your layout! I was going to say the same thing as Jing-Jing--doilies and banners seem to be really popular right now. And misting.
