  1. This is so fun! I'm enjoying seeing all the old collections (I have some) and our early posts! I "lurked" on the SG site for a few months and downloaded a free kit from SG (called A Narrative, maybe?) and used that to "learn" with on PSE 9. As I remember I signed up for both monthly clubs in April 2012, and shortly after that, Brandy's Countryside Collection came out. I still love that one so much! My first post used that kit and some photo frames from a SS kit, I think they were Thao Cosgrove's, and one of Syndee's Blendability masks: Countryside Collection Biggie Blendability 2 and here's my first post: Summertime Vacation Getaway
  2. I just happened across this - I love it! Beautiful background and just the right embellishments to set off your lovely photo!
  3. This is such an artistic page -- beautiful work! Love the reds and golds. Congrats on your Weekly Layout win!
  4. So excited! Thank you all!!
  5. Great photos and lovely job on this, as always. I enjoyed reading your journaling, Jo - you are a natural storyteller! Love the photo of your Mom singing along to her own Happy Birthday song. She sounds like a wonderful mother.
  6. Beautiful, eye-catching layout. I really like the black and white presentation and layers of texture with the color photo and pop of color for the titlework! Lovely work!
  7. So lovely and poignant, and so beautifully done.
  8. Love how your design spotlights your lovely photo. Beautiful contrasting colors and shapes. I love to study your layouts.
  9. Ditto to all the comments above! That gray frame works so well with your B&W photo and the yellows really set it off. This is beautiful on so many levels.
  10. Your DIL will love this! First of all, I love the color scheme. I love the large photo blended in and especially love the way you "cropped in" with the frame overlay. Super job. This would be so cool in a frame on the wall for her.
  11. Beautiful page and so perfect to use for your lovely photo!
  12. Such a cute photo and love the pretty pink to set it off so well. Lovely layout!
  13. Here's my layout: A Mother's Love is Timeless
  14. I really love this quote I found about how all our stories start with our mothers' stories. For this I used a photo of my mother with my sister in about 1939 and one of my mother with me in about 1960. The rest are my mother's siblings, sister-in-law, aunts, grandmother and other relatives with their own children, all part of her story – and even though I did not know them all, my story, too.

  15. Quick question - I notice in my gallery if I click on an image there is a note near the right side that says "This image is not currently being displayed to other users." Then there's a Map Privacy toggle button. What does this mean?

      Hi Brenda.  I'm not sure what that means, i'll try to find out.  But what I do know is I went to my layouts, and it says the same thing.  So thing I went up and logged out of the forum, and went back to look at my gallery  not signed in, and I can still see the same images.  So it doesn't seem that in the default setting that it's stopping others from seeing the layouts.
