Near the each of each month, a new thread will pop up in which you can submit a nomination for the Layout of the Month. This is a great way to bring attention to a fantastic layout as well as earning a free kit for the layout creator if her layout wins! The rules are very simple, any layout can be nominated [with the exception of layouts made by STS designers] & the layout has to have been uploaded during the current month. I'm always eager to see what's been nominated, often I'll see layouts pop up that I never noticed before; it's a great way to get inspiration for your own layouts.
There were so many great layouts submitted this month, it was hard for everyone to pick their favorites but there was a clear winner. It's Family History 2011 by Bekki (bekfek) & this is a real stunner, I can pick out about ten things right of the bat that made this our winner. If I had to pick out just a few things about this layout that I really, really liked it would have to be the clustering & great journaling. But there are so many other wonderful parts to this layout, I could wax poetic about this layout for hours!
Congratulations Bekki! Click on the preview to leave Bekki some love & head over to the November nomination thread to see what other wonderful layouts were submitted. Keep an eye out this month for amazing layouts to nominate for the December Layout of the Month!
