Hello hello!  We are teaming up today with Creative Scrappers and using one of their fabulous sketches to create a layout.  I love sketches because they give you that boost when you need it and there is no going wrong with sketches.

Here is the sketch we are using for this blog hop

Here is the layout I created using the sketch!

I just love how this came out!  These sketches are GREAT!

I used the foam thicker from the Amy Tan Oh Happy Life collection!

The sequins are from SpiegelMom Scraps and they are called Cozy Up and they match perfectly with the colors on the layout!

The pattern papers are from an older Scraptastic kit from summer.

Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to continue on the blog hop and stop by the Creative Scrappers blog because there is a fabulous prize awaiting!  Take care!

Today I have a project called Grateful, which I am and I very grateful for being able to do this project. So the first two pages are below and I am using lots of sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps:)

Here is a close up of the first page and I used Simple Stories Hello Fall collection, which all the sequins I choose for this project are from Spiegelmom Scraps!  

Here is a close up of the new sequins called Evergreen Bough

Here is the second page and I really loved how this turned out!  On this page I am using
All Natural sequins and they matched perfectly!

Here is a close up!  The photo is of my daughter's school Sacramento State College.

Here is a close up of the second page and I am using more Evergreen Bough.

On the next page I am using the sequins called Coffee Break and more Evergreen Bough!
I also love the way the sequins work with the Simple Stories Hello Fall collection.

Just love the close up of this page.

Now take a look at this page!  I used the Build A Snowman, just thought I would mix it up a little with the color spread for this page.  Love how it turned out.
