Happy April! I can’t believe how chilly it still is here in Utah. What I can believe, however, is the unbelievable talent all of our readers have! It’s such a pleasure being able to view your layouts in the Club CK idea galleries. Your layouts are always fun and inspiring, and they always brighten my day when I’m browsing for layouts or looking for inspiration when creating my own projects.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out all of the beautiful layouts in the Club CK gallery, make sure you do! You won’t be disappointed!

Today, I need your help picking the layout in this month’s Readers’ Pick Poll that will be featured in the October 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. It’s as easy as going to our You Be the Judge voting page, voting for your favorite, and doing it as many times that you want—there is no limit to how many times you can vote! Check back later this month to see if your favorite layout won.

You know how they say “be careful what you ask for”? Well, we asked you to choose the cover of our next Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks special issue, and wow—did you ever respond! For a week, all three cover options have been neck and neck, each barely inching out the others for the chance to win. At one point or more, each option was in the lead. What a close race!

But after more than 1,200 votes, the winner is clear: option number 2!

Ta daaaah! The scrapbook layout on this cover was made by the talented Linda Barber.

In case you were wondering who the talented scrapbookers behind the other options are, they are CK Dream Team member Wendy Sue Anderson behind option #1:

And CK contributing writer Mou Saha behind option #3:

Thanks to all of you who voted. We appreciate you input and are excited to feature the cover YOU chose for this issue, which will be on sale in May.

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe it’s the 10th day of March already? I sure can’t! It seems like just yesterday I was getting ready for the Christmas holidays. But growing up in sunny California, I am definitely a fan of spring. So I say bring on the sunshine—and all the pretty beauties that come along with it. Speaking of pretty, I am enjoying the new galleries over on our Club CK site. It’s been super fun browsing your projects. I’ve picked five of my favorites and would love to have you help me choose the one that will be featured in the September 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes. It’s really quite simple. All you have to do is click on this survey and vote for your favorite. The layout that receives the most votes will be published. Here is a sneak peek at one of the five  fabulous pages you’ll have the opportunity to vote on—and if you can’t decide on just one, no worries. There is no limit to how many times you’re allowed to vote! I will announce the winner at the end of next week, so keep checking back to see if your favorite was chosen.

We will feature both Readers’ Pick pages in the July/August 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes. Thanks to our other nominees as well for sharing your talents with us. We loved your pages! I would also like to invite all of you to submit your pages by e-mailing photos or scans of your layouts to editorial@creatingkeepsakes.com with “Reader Gallery” in the subject line.

I found five layouts for you to vote on, like the one pictured below. The winner will be published in CK!
