My Sweet Family

Many of this month's challenges have featured gratitude themes and since I didn't start a gratitude journal or list of something to be thankful for each day, I feel like doing several gratitude layouts was a perfect way to celebrate November without overwhelming myself. This layout features My Mind's Eye Lost & Found line, yes the older one which I've used before, but I picked up a bunch of sheets for 25 cents each at CKC Seattle!
This was part of For The Luv Of Art's Challenge blog, to do a layout about what you are thankful for, and I used my journaling to write about being thankful for my family.
I used C'est Magnifique Kits sketch as inspiration for my layout:

ScrapFIT's Step Class #10 featured creating a layered banner with two textures. I used pleated ribbon for one texture, corrugated cardboard for the triangle banner, and mesh for the two point banner.
I added a bit of paint to the triangle banner to bring out the texture. I also used beautiful thick crepe from Mon Ami Gabby to create my yellow roses. They sell rolls of it in rich colors and I bought six rolls at CKC to play with!


  1. Love the colors, banners and - just everything!!!

  2. Your page is gorgeous!! Love the Black and Yellow together and the texture in your banner is really great!! Great idea using the corrugated cardboard!! Thanks for working out with us @ ScrapFIT!!

  3. Those roses are gorgeous. This whole page is lovely.

  4. Hi Andrea. Thanks for participating in the C'est Magnifique Kits sketch challenge. Your layout is one of our featured layouts! We love how you have interpreted the sketch. We hope you will participate again in December. Our new sketch has been posted.
