I'm Thankful 4...

I made this layout for Scrappin' Everyday Miracles November Challenge (http://scrappingeverydaymiracles.blogspot.com/2013/11/challenge-to-be-thankful-is-to-be-truly.html). I'm Thankful 4... Lemonade Pie and being able to share recipes with her. This paper is from a set that I won from the recent SEM blog hop from Helen. It's Be Blessed Scrapbooking Signature Watercolor Collection Hearts Abound. The title letters are Jilibean Soup Chipboard Alphabeans that I received in the August Life's A Party Kit with Housecalls by: Scrappin' Madge (http://heartstringdesigns.com/). I was running out of room and decided to use the number 4. I should of started closer to the left corner but I wasn't sure how much room I would need so that's why the ellipse is going down. The lemon stickers are Sticko Sweet Treats Dimensional Stickers, the "Pucker Up" and "it's good" stickers are K&Company Emma Rose Word Embossed Stickers, the bling is from a little zip lock bag full of gems from Helen, the tag under the picture of the pie is also part of the Be Blessed Signature Watercolor Collection (SWC), the rub-on in the bottom left corner is from the same SWC, the journaling tag is K&Company Engraved Garden Journal Tags that I bought from TJ Maxx for $0.70, the twine was included in the box from Helen as was the clothes pin.

                                         a close-up of the rub-on so you can see it better, it's an entire sheet of different    spiritual wording and Scripture
this is a close-up of the journaling tag so you can see the clothes pin. I wrote- "Grandmama makes this pie in the summer. I have made it a couple times and am thankful to have recipes shared from her." I wanted to keep this layout as simple as I could so I didn't cover up the hearts on the paper. I took my time doing this layout and thought more about what I was doing instead of just throwing stickers on it! It took me almost afternoon to finish, because I was on the phone with my sister, was watching TV, and had to set my fantasy football team after a trade that was proposed last night. I hate that Washington Redskins lost tonight, but I hope Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers, and Denver Broncos win! I'll post some other cards I made this week tomorrow. TFL!

Lovely layout. I agree about the word verification removal, its hard to see. (if you need help on turning it off, you can message me at ShersL84bed at aol dot com) I'll give you a hand.

I wasn't aware of the word verification prompt. That must be something new w/ Blogger. I despise it as well. Thanks for your comments & letting me know! Sher, I will e-mail u this afternoon. I'm off to work here shortly.
