Happy Thanksgiving!

There are so many things I am grateful for this year. Of course, my family and friends are at the top of the list. Without their constant love and support I would not be able to achieve all of the goals I have set upon myself. To them, I am forever grateful.

Today was filled with wonderful food and family. After dinner, while everyone was sleeping off the Turkey, I managed to finish up this page that had been laying on my desk.

It took me nearly 10 years to figure out what my scrapbooking style was. It wasn't until I became a CTMH consultant and I really started analyzing my pages did it occur to me. One simple word sums it up. "Layered". I build my pages from the ground up, adding layers and dimension until the page feels "done". I usually attach as I build and often the page takes on entirely different look from the vision I had when I started.

The base of this layout started with a piece of pink paislee resist paper. I spent a lot of time adding various colors of ink to the paper to change the boring off white to a rainbow of colors, only to cover most of it up with other page elements. Ahhh... the building process.

The chipboard circle framing the pictures is from the CTMH Dimensional Elements On Target package. If you haven't tried the Dimensional Elements, they are the bomb! Perfect for inking and stamping since they are white and not "cardboard" colored.
