Gallery Highlights | 10.18.2012

Welcome to Gallery Highlights for this week!

This week’s finds include some very special layouts that are sure to inspire you. I was very inspired by both the soft textures and the topics of the layouts I found this week. And it’s almost that time – I’m going to keep including holiday projects every week.  Let’s go take a look at them and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – You can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.

(If you follow Card Annex on Facebook, you got a sneak peek of this card over the weekend while it was under construction, so make sure you follow us there!)
