Hi everyone! Hope your week is going great! We are having Thanksgiving at our house this year, so it will be a busy week! We've already got the grocery shopping done! Yeah!! We will be doing a lot of our traditional Thanksgiving dishes as well as trying some new things too. Hoping to get the house cleaned today, and considering making a few more Thanksgiving decorations. My kids are off school all week and yesterday my son was wanting to make stuff so he punched and drew a whole bunch of leaves that he is going to scatter on our table. And last year I made some Thanksgiving name cards for our family, but we needed to make a few more for this year, so he also made those name cards yesterday. He has been quite the little helper, and I love seeing him excited about creating. :) Do you guys make anything special for Thanksgiving? Or how about a unique or well loved recipe you do?
Ok...moving on. :)
This month over at The ScrapCake's blog we had a post about mixing the collections. I did a couple layouts for it.
And this month I was asked to be a guest designer for Colorful Creations. They gave me a sketch to work with. So I combined this sketch:
With the challenge to combine The ScrapCake collections, and got this:
First of all, I loved the tilts on the sketch, but it just didn't work well with my photos and elements, so I just made it straight. The collections I combined for this layout are Cozy Xmas, Summer at the Seaside, and even a little of Little Monsters and The Bright Side of Life.
My daughter's hair is in that awkward stage...we are growing the bangs out and they are not quite long enough to stay back but too long to keep from covering her eyes. :) I do admit, I look forward to them growing long enough that we can tuck them behind her ears.
Here are some close up's of my layout:
That cool bloomer is from Webster's Pages. The yellow letter stickers are from Authentique. And the chipboard letters are from American Crafts.
I cut those leaves with my Slice. I love the look of die cuts on the same paper as the background.
And yep...more flags. :) I am lovin' the flags lately.
And then this second layout was also done for The ScrapCake challenge of combining collections:
I used The Bright Side of Life, Cozy Xmas, Spring Awakening, and a little from Summer At The Seaside. I actually like this layout a lot more in real life than in this photo, but oh well.
Here are some close up's:
Those chipboard letters are from Fancy Pants.
Thanks for stopping in today! Hope your day is FABULOUS! :)
