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. Head on over to the December nomination thread to see all the amazing layouts nominated this month.
This month's winner is Christmas 2010 Family Photo by Stephanie [AKA filandstef] & I think it was well chosen! Just look at all that fabulous clustering of elements & papers behind the photo. I'm also a sucker for rounded photos & I think the word art Stephanie used for the title is super cute. Stephanie used A Christmas To Remember by Meagan's Creations & click on the layout to go leave Stephanie some love in the gallery!
Be sure to check out the Layout of the Month section of the forum near the end of January & nominate your favorite layout for a chance to win!
