Oh, yikes, Tamie. I'm with you on this one. Looks like she is supposed to be Caspar the Friendly Ghost, but I don't remember Casper carrying a knife. Cute top border there... and it goes perfect with your page design!

Well, that was totally weird... I posted comments prior to Tamie's page, and yet now I don't see them... hmmm.. I wonder if I didn't hit the Publish button...

Love your delicate, feminine border for your Sweet Samantha page, Jodie! So perfect and fitting for this page.

Eileen, what a CUTE layout. I left a note in the gallery saying I thought this would make the most adorable greeting card! Cute top border, and like how you anchored it with the buttons on the title.

Debdux, Love the intricacy and the plain FUN of your border! It really fits well with your page theme! Looks like a blast!!!

Pam, this is lovely! Love the way you have tucked the flowers in among the draped paper pieces Really beautiful!

Cathy! I am totally cracking up right now! I happened to see this layout in another gallery and thought.. CATHY! You should be entering my Border Challenge with this awesome border! LOL.. and here you are! Thanks! I love your clustering in the border, and the page is so nicely crafted!

Oh Im so stupid... havent seen the word "TOP" and wondered why everybody use the boarder at the top
I will have a look, if Ive the psd stored. Wether I will make a new one...

What a lovely page, Diane! I really like the use of the colorful paisley paper as the border, with the beautiful cluster on top. It really brings out the colors in your photography. Beautiful page!

Hi Karen! Great layout, and LOVE the spider in your photo! LOL! What a fun place to visit! Your cluster is just lovely, and I love the crow looking on.. Great top border! Love the way you tied it all together with the ribbon.

Lovely, top border, Ella! I love that you used photos in it. Very creative! Super layering too! Really neat journaling also.

This is lovely, Barb. Love all the intricate layering in your border. It is so full of interest! And a lovely page in general too!

What a super sweet border, Wendy. I love the scallops you put on it and how the heart extended just a bit over the edges of the paper border.

Very nice page, Sandie. I really like how you entwined the ribbons and string to create the base of the border.

This was really fun and so many beautiful and creative ideas. I rarely do top borders, but now I see how awesome they can be. Thank you Karen for the challenge.

Thanks, Judy! I'm so glad you enjoyed the challenge and tried something new for you. You did an awesome job with the entire layout, and I especially love the border. It is so natural and perfectly fits the flavor of your page! (Thanks for using Granny Finch's Garden as part of this awesome page too!)

Took me all month to get the inspiration for my border. Then today while cleaning my Hard Drive I found the perfect set of pictures for my Favorite Kit this month. The sweet elements in Karen's Hay Day add on kit made a Very Conservative Top Border.

George's Hair Cut is in the Gallery Here.
