    Welcome to the latest edition of the TLP POP (Pride of the Pad)

    If you have seen blinkies in some members signatures and wondered about this, and for those of you who don't know, this is The Lilypad version of Layout of the Week and it is VERY.DIFFICULT. to choose just one from each week! The inspiration of the gallery is amazing and each week of the month a different Polly chooses one page to highlight and award bragging rights to the creator!

    Be sure to congratulate these scrappers!
    Click on the graphics to visit their pages & leave them some love in the gallery!

    The honour of first POP award for September goes to... @meterr

    I'm just seeing this now!! Thank you sooo much, everyone! I really can't believe it! I never think of my own work here is up to snuff. I see other people's layouts and think all of you can do so much better. I see techniques I would love to be able to do. Maybe I'm too hard on myself or not appreciating my own artistry. Maybe others think the same of their own work. I now have more confidence in my work but know I have so much more to learn. I really love being a member of the Lilypad family.
    The little astronaut in the photo was five years old. He is my youngest son, Elijah. The photo was from his school's "Spring Personality" photo day. Each child could wear whatever they wanted to show who they are. Most wore sports outfits or dressed up but my son has autism and doesn't play sports and does not like "itchy" dress clothes. At that time he really wanted to go to the moon! He is now 17 and a Brony musician. In between then and now his ideas of his future have changed so many times but he still dreams big! I still cherish this picture of my silly little guy! I loved using this kit "Stardust" by Paula Kesselring. It has so many vintage space elements and I love the dark and kind of spooky space backgrounds. They make me feel I'm in the coldness of space. Thank you Polly @FarrahJobling for choosing my layout out of all the awesome work here!

    some of my friends tell me I was lucky with Sarita because she knew what she wanted to be since she was 2 years old.....80% of my friend's kids have changed their minds so many times..... my nephew dropped 2 years of med school to go to Law.....

    It's our half way point in the month and we have another page to honour and it is a case of 'don't judge a book by it's cover', totally worth clicking through to read the journalling!
    Congrats goes to.... @Mingo08

    I feel I have to say that before you jump to conclusions today, not every bird page is an instant POP, in fact it wasn't even my choice this week but I can't help smiling at this page nevertheless!
    Congrats this week goes to... @Farwen
