I have designed a card for you today using Floppy Latte Designs Celebrate with Thanksgiving quote.  Such a beautiful quote with the Block letters which I have colored with copics and accented with glossy accents. I paired this image with a vintage Thanksgiving image from my collection. I have used papers from Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection.  And stacked a few Prima flowers for added dimension. I have spritzed the card and quote with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Long John Silvers" Moonshadow spritz along with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.  The edge of the layers have been distressed and curled to show the lovely woodgrain pattern of the paper beneath.   Hope you enjoy the blog hop today and thanks for Celebrating our anniversary with us! 
Dont forget to leave a little love along the way in order to qualify for the prize drawing!!
Happy Holiday Season!!

This weeks challenge over at Scrapbook Place Challenge Blog is to design a project around the theme of "Its beginning to look like Christmas" ..another great theme!  I have designed a little gift bag from an upcycled lunch bag along with a vintage tag to match.

Vintage inspired altered clothespin

I took this little wooden clothespin and turned it into a magnet to hold a few notes on the fridge. I have altered it with tiny prima flowers and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly. I added some some glitter around the edges and a couple little tiny pink rhinestones on the end of the clip. I have a little note card made from a small kraft bag from Michaels, I added some Prima paper clippings from various collections to the inside. Love that seam binding..I added a bit of it for the binding for my note card and hung a little charm from a grommet pin. :)  I made 3 of these for a swap over at Your Paper Pantry..I can't wait to see what the other girls come up with.
