Congratulations to Julie Ann for landing on our very first
cover! We fell in love with her amazing layering and
darling word art within her photos. Her fun shaped layout
manages to feel both crisp and shabby at the same
time--fabulous! Thanks Julie Ann for sharing with us.
We hope you enjoy your prize.
You, too, might see your creation on the cover, but you have to submit first! All items submitted to article calls are looked at, and the top eye-catchers are chosen by our Editors and put in a voting poll for our crew to select the cover winner. So get those layouts, cards and projects in everyone! Each month, the cover winner receives a prize package from our sponsors filled with yummy supplies.
Take a second look at our front cover.

Design Notes: I created the scallop border by repeating a small
circle layer all around the template. Then I merged all the circles. I also
put word art on the photo and erased away the word art on their faces and
bodies to make it look like the word art is behind them.
