Thankful 185

Finishing up my "stint" over at How Much is Too Much this month and what better way to reflect on Thankful?  Since I started the month with non-traditional colors for the holiday themes, I wanted to finish on the same note.  This weeks challenge calls for the follow recipe:

A layout based on Thankfulness and..
3 foam embellishments
4 colors of cardstock
5 buttons
6 stickers (non-alphabet)

My four colors of cardstock came from the scrap box again.  I used three border punches and created a layered "embossed" look with my 10" x 2" strips.  I highlighted the edges with my white gel pen.  The three foam embellishments was a stretch for me.  I don't own any foam... or did I?  I found some foam craft blocks in my craft closet from ages ago.  I ran two thru my die cutter using my Sizzix Florish die.  The third piece, I painted in white gesso.  Then I stamped with Lime Chalk Ink and lastly touched up with my Copic brown marker.  The five buttons came from the button stash.  The 6 stickers are also from my age old stash.. two border stickers by Creative Imaginations, both since long retired.  Then some vellum hearts that I colored with Copics and enhanced with liquid pearls..

I shared my list of thankfulness on a small tag tucked in.  While I'm very thankful for many things, I'm also thankful for the friends I've met thru this creative journey called Scrapbooking.  I'm grateful to those fabulous friends and family who'll tease me for my inability to spell "Thankful", not once but TWICE on this layout. Thank YOU for viewing and sharing.  While we in America celebrate and share our thanks, I'd like to share my thanks with everyone around the globe for how you've inspired me and cheered me on.  I'm grateful to have you in my life, regardless of how.  :D
