HMITM - Challenge 185

Running a bit behind this week, still trying to unpack from my weekend away.

It was really great to get away and just scrap without the interruptions. Not that I really get that many at home, but it was fun to spend some time with like minded scrappers. I thought I would also combine the colours from The Color Room with this challenge, I didn't have time to plan before I left so I basically just had to wing it with what I did have in my stash.

#185 Thankful (November 21 - December 4)Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, but American Thanksgiving is celebrated this week.I would like you to do a layout about thankfulness. (any aspect)plus...

3 foam embellishments
- I didn't have any of these with me so I used foam dots and covered them with glitter
4 colors of cardstock - pink, orange, raspberry and white,
5 buttons - I only had one of these in my stash so I used stickers and stitched them so that they resembled buttons.
6 stickers (non-alphabet)- at least I did have these with me.

I am more than happy with the outcome of this page, totally way to white space for me but even the colours were pretty good considering I didn't have much to chose from.

Products used: Digital frame from 2 peas, Bazzill Cardstock, Pink Paisley sticker dots, Heidi Grace button, Sizzix die cut swirl, Stickers, Prima Mask, Tattered Angels mist and MM rubons.Thanks for looking and I hope you find some time to play along at these sites.

Pin It!
