As promised, here are some of Lindsey's layouts she created at our mother/daughter get-away weekend where she inquired, "Who reads your blog mommy?" and "Can I do a give-away on your blog from Mirage?" (her store in our basement!). So...

Please leave Lindsey a comment telling her which of the following is your favourite layout of hers!!

Wow great layouts Lindsey!! I would have to pick two layouts the second from the top one and the girls just want to have fun. Love the pics in both and the papers you chose. That is great that you like to scrap with your mom. I have all boys and unfortunately none show an interest in my hobby. Keep up the great work and show us more of your layouts as your hobby developes.

I love the second layout. Way to go! You're doing great!

MindyLou said...

WOW Lindsey!!! All of the layouts are amazing!!! If I had to pick one favourite, I'd pick the second one (with three baby pictures and four strips of patterned paper). I really like the white background and how the patterned paper frames the photos. They are all beautiful though! You're very creative!

Rochelle said...

Lindsey: my favorite page is the second one from the top. I'm guessing that is you as a baby! I love it!! You are an amazing scrapbooker!! wow.
I met your mom at a scrapbooking event this last weekend and heard all about you.
You sound like a very special young lady!

melanie said...

Wow, they are all very good, tough call, but I think I like "Joy" the best. Great job, looks like you had fun.

Carole said...

Awesome layouts Lindsey! I really like the "We're all in this together" layout. It looks like you are all having a great time together. I also like the "Girls just wanna have fun" layout - I really like the papers you chose for that. Great scrapbooking!

Anonymous said...

I think you did a fabulous job...:) Me too I have to pick two favorites. The first one is the girls just wanna have fun layout...colors are great & love the positioning of all your elements. 2nd. I have to pick your very first layout, as I love the title "We are all in this together" love it, I also really like the green paper has some texture to it. Keep creating, looks great! Kari

qtheepie said...

Ok Lindsey, seriously you are one talented girl! and you are beautiful! Keep them comming!

miss filly said...

I love the second last one,the "Girls just wanna have fun" one.

Susan Bruyn said...

Lindsey,

These are all fabulous layouts! It is so hard to choose!! I think my favorites are the first one (We ar all in this together) and 'joy' (the blue one with your photo). You are a very creative girl!

Jennifer Reynard said...

Okay there girl, for sure you should enter the second layout in the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine!
The fun layout using strips of paper, gorgeous baby photos and a touch of embellishment with the flower totally rocks!! My second choice, just in case you are wondering, and if not, I'll tell you anyways (LOL), would be the "SPRING"themed page. The photos show so beautifully against the background papers you have chosen.
Your pages are all stunning and I so wish I could create like you do.
Well done and thanks for sharing!

~*~ Stephanie ~*~ said...

They are all so pretty.. but my favorite is the first one, the "we are all in this together" I LOVE the colors.. and all those gorgeous flowers!!

Very nice job, I am glad I found the blog so I will be able to see more of your layouts in the future!

kmp1515 said...

Great pages!!! You are SO creative! I like them all...but my favorite is the first layout...I really like your flower placement and your sparkle title.

Anonymous said...

I love them all Lindsey:-) You are very talented. I love all the colours you used and your LOs are fantastic, but if I have to choose I pick the one with the baby faces using the strips of pp and the cute flower you added. I like that it's 4 pps and 3 pics:-)With that kind of talent you should enter some children contests;-) Thanks for letting us see your LOs:-)

Lindsey, you've done a great job on all the layouts. Love the technique in the spring one (look out Lecia I think you've got competition!) and the three baby photos LO is adorable...love looking at it and how the pattern paper compliments the textures in the photos.

I love the colors and photos you used :)

ScrappeeDiane said...

Awesome layouts Lindsey! I had a hard time picking just one favourite but after lots of debate I have choosen "Spring" I love the colours and the photos are awesome too. Love the toothless smile.

Scrapbooklynne said...

Lindsey - What a little talent you are! I love them all, but my favorites are:
The Baby Photo layout - your use of color and and the lines you used to frame the photos is really good; and the Spring layout because you made your own paper and it is gorgeous.
PS: I REALLY need those stamps
PPS: Happy B-day (Mine was yesterday!)
Love Lynne

Ruth aka alteredgeisha said...

I think the layering on the black and white Bonnets photos is very good for a teenager......certainly a talent of tomorrow in the making!!

I wondered who made that bird stamp it's really cool!! I should have known it would be KC!!

Love them all, Lindsey! Good job! (wish some of my pages looked that good).
I would have to say that my favourite is the "cousins" one, just because you and Kayla are in it (and it's a good layout too!).

DMYK said...

Hi Lindsey!! Your layouts are all wonderfully done...keep up the great work! I also echo previous comments that it is wonderful to have a hobby that you enjoy and can spend time with your mom.

My favorite is the Spring layout too..I like the choice of colours and the design. You look so much like you mom (and that is a good thing).

Hard to choose just one, but I pick the first "we are all in this together". Makes me think of how your family was on the crop and cruise, all of you helping together

shirl said...

Hi Lindsey, you've done a great job on all the layouts but my favourite in the second one with the black and white photos and red and green paper. The way you positioned your vertical papers makes your eyes go right to your photos. I hope you continue to enjoy scrapbooking as much as I do and stretch your imagination and try new things. Happy scrapping.

Jeanette said...

Betty NS said...

Lindsey, you are sooo talent.I love all your LO's.I would have to say that my favourite is Spring.I like the choice of colors and design.Thanks for the chance to win.

Rose said...

Wow, lots of people read your mom's blog. I pick spring. I noticed you had that paper on our Delburne weekend and it was done in ink. The end result is fab.
I too like asking for advice from my mom... and then not taking it. It's just nice to know what they think sometimes.

coRinne not connie said...

Fantastic layouts - all of them - i think it's hard to pick just one - the second one caught my eye the most though.
Keep up the great work Lindsey!

Cari said...

Oh wow Lindsey!!! Your layouts are amazing!!! WTG girl!!
I'd have to say that my favorite (and my daughter's) would be "Girls just wanna have fun!!"

Keep it up girl - you're doing a super, fabulous, amazing job!! ;)

Trisha Ladouceur said...

Wow Lindsey! Great job... you have some serious talent:) I like layout #2 (although they all rock!)

P.S. Happy Birthday (I might be a day or two late but I think I think I heard it was your birthday this week!) Hope it was FABULOUS!!!

jill said...

Hey Lindsey. Love, Love, LOVE all your layouts. Had to scroll through them several times to see which one was my absolute fave. So.......I pick.......
the untitled layout (2nd from the top). Firstly, I love the photos of you in this layout. Any layout that has photos of a cute baby should be a winner anyway. Secondly, I am a pattern paper junkie, so I love how you used all this pattern paper to create such a simple, yet beautiful layout. You are definitely NOT afraid to use colour and pattern on your creations. LOVE it!!! I love how this layout grabs your eye and makes you wonder what the stories are behind these photos.
Awesome job, kiddo!!! I'd scrap with you any day -- and twice on Sundays.
miss you,
jill

TraceyD said...

Hi Lindsey. It was nice meeting you in Delburne - what a talented scrapbooker you are. It's great that you and your mom share a special hobby together. My favorite layout of yours is the baby one - I loved how you used different papers together and the photos are precious.

Lee-Anne said...

Hi Lindsey! I am very impressed with your creative talent. My favorite layout is "Spring" although I think all of them are really good.

TanyaW said...
