Very Thankful (Scraptastic Club)

We don't get too many fall leaves to play in here due to the higher temps. We have three seasons: hot, humid and really hot, and slightly chilly. I was thrilled to see that our local park had gathered a big pile of leaves when we went there on field trip last Winter. I snapped quite few photos of Brandon throwing leaves in the air. I knew the Farmer's Market kit would be a perfect match for these pictures!

I used a PageMaps sketch as inspiration for my design because I was struggling a bit with the "layered up" theme at Scraptastic Club this month. You all know that I'm a really linear scrapper and I couldn't abandon that completely. I did layer bunches of embellishments. Title work, bingo cards, hexagon stickers, a banner, and a bird make up one cluster. Another cluster includes three stickers, two banners, a word sticker, and some bling. See? Mucho layering!


I also made a second project with the Farmer's Market kit. It's a no mess cupcake box. I am making them to give to my kids' teachers to thank them for all of their hard work. Of course, they'll have cupcakes inside once I get them all finished. I layered a wreath sticker, a paper strip, a leaf, and a big floss bow on top of the box.


That's all for me today. Don't forget to enter the November Challenges on the blog. There's always an extra awesome prize!

Thank You copy

Layering is hard for me, but I think you've done a perfect job of combining layering with CAS!
