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.

Happy Thursday! I wanted to take a few moments this morning to announce the winner of our Readers’ Pick poll this month. A huge congratulations to JanaMorton who received 63 percent of the votes. Her super-cute “Boots On” scrapbook page will be featured in the September 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. Thanks to everyone who voted, and thanks to those who share your projects with us in our online project gallery at Club CK. Keep up the great work, and keep submitting. Your layout could be the next one chosen to be a part of the Readers’ Pick poll–and it might even be featured in an upcoming issue of CK magazine! Here’s a sneak peek just for you, our blog readers, of Jana’s winning scrapbook page.

Happy Thursday! It’s been a “Super” week, and I am excited to share the Readers’ Pick page winners with you for this month. Yes, I said winners—as in two! The votes were so close that we had to put both pages in the magazine.  Congratulations to JenD (“The Story”) and babyroo7 (“Saturday”)! 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 with “Reader Gallery” in the subject line. You never know—you might have your layout picked up for a future issue.

Wow! Can you believe it’s December already? I feel like the years just get shorter and shorter. Maybe that comes with getting older, but whatever the case, I hope you’re documenting the days and events important to you. Besides being significant for future generations, your layouts inspire others when they’re posted in our online gallery, helping others create and record memories as well.

In that gallery, we also find layouts to publish in Creating Keepsakes. I’d love to have your help choosing the next Readers’ Pick layout to be featured in the May/June 2010 issue of the magazine. The task is simple and will only take a few moments of your time, but be sure to participate by December 7, 2009. Click on this survey to get started, and then choose your favorite layout. That’s it! Check back on the CK blog later this month to see which page wins.

If you’re not submitting to the online gallery, we’d love to see your work. You never know, your layout may be the next Readers’ Pick page!

P.S. Congratulations to babyroo7 for creating the layout that won last month’s Readers’ Pick choice from the online survey! Her “Photo Shoot” layout will be featured in the March/April 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes.
