SO Thankful

Hi crafty friends!!! There is SNOW here this morning, lots of it! I hate snow... but today it put me in the mood for Christmas! I bought my daughter a CD of Christmas songs yesterday so that's playing in our house today! I usually don't get into the Christmas spirit until the first of December, but I got 1/2 my Christmas shopping done yesterday so I'm in the mood already! :) I also went a little crazy with the sale that was on in Michaels yesterday.... I'm going to do a haul video to show you soon! Onto the layout that I teased you with last night!!!!

I was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Peachy Keen, as well as my win from their blog hop not too long ago. I won the scarecrow stamps and accessories! Talk about a great win!!!!

Of course I used my new journaling tags from Pink by Design on here too! I think these stamps are going to be a part of every layout!!! My 'Thankful' title was cut from Storybook cricut cartridge.

So for the first time ever, I tried paper piecing! I love how this cute little scarecrow turned out!!! Isn't she cute?! I used mostly Recollections paper on this layout... I also used Recollections pearls, Michaels ribbon, glaze pend to color the straw, and more ribbon from my stash. 

I also have some other things I want to share with you! First of all, I know I need to announce some winners!! I'm hoping to announce these to you either later on today or else tomorrow - depending on how the rest of my day goes!

There is a GREAT sale going on over at Pink by Design that is still going on today!!! Make sure to check it out, a lot of sets are on sale PLUS shipping is only $0.11!!! Gotta love that!! Especially those of us who are out of the US!!! 

Second, I'm now a part of the Seasonal Design Team over at My Cricut Craft Room!! For the first 25 days in December Erica's team is going to be sharing 25 projects a DAY!!!! There is going to be some amazing inspiration over there for the month of December!!! There are still spots open on this DT if you are interested, she's looking for 50-60 members!! I would love for some of my crafty friends to be on the team with me! Check it out! :)

Hope you all have a great long weekend, I'll be back tomorrow with another layout!!!!

Beautiful layout Candace! What gorgeous colors! That little scarecrow is a doll, what a sweet face and the photos of your family are wonderful. Love this fun, fall layout and thinking I might just put on some Christmas music myself!
