Thankful for You

Remember these cards from The Memory Nest's color challenge back in the fall. Well, I used that same paper for the layout I am going to show you today and I am so happy because I finally got to pair it with a picture of my silly girls from Thanksgiving.
I had tried to use this picture for the color challenge back in the fall, but the place I go to get my pictures printed was experiencing 'technical difficulties' and was unable to print pictures for over a week....and my deadline was looming. I was happy to get two free copies of the picture when they were up and running - one to frame for on the hall table, and one to scrap for today's sketch challenge.

Did you know that The Memory Nest now has two sketch designers producing new, never-seen-before sketches? Exciting stuff. This is this week's sketch, designed by Crystal.
My take on the sketch is pretty true to the original design, with a few minor tweaks to fit my larger photo.

I really layered on the paper. I have been experimenting with this technique lately - combining several patterned papers, using small pieces of each, and piling them on my page. I really like the dimension layering gives, and that it is possible to use so many different patterned papers on one layout.
The papers and embellishments that I used on this page are from the Happy Harvest line by Doodlebug Design.

It goes without saying that the work of others on the Design Team is beautiful. I invite you to hop on over to The Memory Nest to see what they have created.


  1. Super cute page. I really like how you flipped the sketch.
