Each week, five layouts that caught our eye will be chosen to feature as our "Most Wanted." With so many amazing layouts in the gallery, it was incredibly hard to narrow the "lineup" down to five, but here they are, in no particular order. (Please click on the title beneath the layout to take you to the layout in the gallery where you can leave the creators some comments.)
And just because there were too many fantastic layouts in the gallery, here are a few more that caught our eye.
Maiko's layout is stunning! We love her beautiful distressing and the way she layered the punches. Her textured clouds are lovely, and we love how she set the photo behind all those gorgeous blooms and the gate, making it seem like her two sweet boys are beckoning us to come into the garden. We think her use of product packaging as a photo mat is so clever!
What fabulous photographs and a beautiful layout Kathleen has created! We love the repetition of circles in her design, and we think the dressed-up dressform is the perfect embellishment for this lovely page. The half-doily shape at the bottom is another lovely touch for this vintage photo. We like the use of the ledger paper torn and curled at a few spots to reveal the pretty pattern beneath it. What precious memories Kathleen has preserved here!
What a delightful layout Tania has created! We love the design which allowed her to incorporate so many of those sweet photographs. The angles and the clouds add a bit of whimsy to her page, and we especially loved Tania's approach to journaling by contrasting her two children! Such a sweet page!
Monica's title first captured our attention. We love that metaphor she used to contrast her two sweet children! The photograph is utterly charming, and we like how Monica framed it on an angle to add a sense of playfulness. We think this is such a sweet page full of whimsical details, especially the little fairy inside the nest!
We love the sentiment behind Annette's beautiful layout! We thought the black and white and color photos look really great together, and her masking is lovely in the background. Annette included so many pretty details on her page to look at. We especially loved the key, which is the perfect accent for the quote "Smiles open many doors."
Tell Your Story. It's our tagline, and here at CSI, it's one of our missions to get our members to delve deeper into journaling--to document the meaningful bits and pieces that make up our lives. We would like to shine a special spotlight each week on a member who does an exceptional job telling their story.

Congratulations Ladies, gorgeous work.
Thanks so much for placing me on the watch list. It's funny, I normally have trouble putting so many pics on a layout, but this one came together nicely thanks for all your inspiration and congratulations to all the deserving layouts on under surveillance and on the watch list.
oh you did an amazing job putting all of those on there with the journaling. I really am not good with multiple small photos so I was quite inspired.
Congratulations to everyone! CSI Members make the most beautiful pages!
