Every Now and Then 2 {Dressed Up} and {Dressed Down} templates are multi-photo, carefully embellished, and perfectly painted for you to document the every now and then moments that are perfectly captured in photos. These layout compositions are versatile and will help you create lovely pages, whether those every now and then moments are happy or sad . . . good or bad. You'll find custom shadows and dynamic shading on the photo spots so that you can make beautifully shadowed layouts quickly and easily.

We have started a new monthly challenge series called Finding Me In 2023. The goal of this series is to help you create an album of layouts specifically about you. Each month, a new theme will be presented along with one or more example layouts. By the end of the year, you will have a cover layout, at least 12 layouts, and an ending layout.

The series is facilitated by me (gonewiththewind or Cheryl of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs). Each month, one or more TLP designers will sponsor. You may find a new product from the designer sponsor(s) to help you specifically create your layout in keeping with the month’s theme, an exclusive coupon to purchase product from the designer sponsor, or a random giveaway.

Come join in and create your cover page and first layout! There's a special coupon from me included for this month as well as a freebie! Here's a peek at my cover layout and my first layout for this album.

I think I've reached a fairly good spot and can feel my creativity pushing forward. You'll see new templates come into your inbox for this week!
