A Thankful Layout

With so many November inspiration challenges being about Thanksgiving and thankfulness, I decided to go against the grain and use a photo from summer for my thankful layout.
I used my Sizzix circle die to cut various sized circles from a My Mind's Eye Six by Six paper pad that all coordinated. I adhered them in a circle with faux stitching, with brad and button embellishments.
I was inspired by ScrapFIT Workout #79 to use washi tape and added a strip of dotted tape by Queen & Co. and made coordinating little flags with pins.
For Paper Girls challenge, I used "thanks" as my subject.
For Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge, I made my layout about my lovely family and included the blue gingham ribbon with a little bow to add to the family ties theme.
I used the color and sketch inspiration from Color Me Scrappy's Challenge #15:
