Good morning - those of us in the US are celebrating Martin Luther King Day today, so maybe you're getting some extra time to scrap? Hope so!

Today we are again turning to Circle of Life - this is a layout by Glitter Queen, called Shine:

First off, I always enjoy looking at Glitter Queen's layouts as she follows the life of her sweet Lily - I feel like I'm getting to watch her grow up, even though I don't know her.  She has done something special here - she's created a layout with amazing visual appeal, and still had a spot to add in a large block of journaling, something that often doesn't happen - and for my own layouts, journaling is a must-have, so I love to see where other layout artists have done that so skillfully as Glitter Queen has here.  Her photo of Miss Lily is so pretty and really commands attention.  The way she's clustered her elements and layered her paper strips is such a treat to look at - she's used so many of the beautiful papers and elements from Circle of Life here that it is easy to get a true feel of the scope of Silvia's kit.  I think her use of the striped paper strip really sets off the cluster in a great way.  What a fantastic layout, Glitter Queen, thanks for sharing it with us!

So hopefully you are getting some extra scrap time in, and you can spend some of it working with Circle of Life!
