If you are here for the Scrapbook USA Expo Blog Hop, Welcome!! Scroll down to Monday's post and join the Hop!
I'm thankful today that I get to share a pretty layout as well as some more exciting news! I'm Tomi Ann and I've been asked to join the Design Team for the ScrapbookUSA Expo. Twice a year for the last 6 years, my crafty friends and I have gotten together at the ScrapbookUSA Expo for a day of awesome scrapbooking deals, silly games and prizes, and lots and lots of scrapbooking. I love it! There are such good deals to be had that I end up getting nearly all my supplies during that twice a year spree. So I was delighted when I was chosen for their first-ever design team.
For my first project, I got to play with the gorgeous Autumn Melody stack from DCWV. I love these coordinating stacks -- they make it so easy to put together beautiful projects. For this layout I cut a lot of hexagons from 8 different patterned papers, then used the coordinating cardstock matstack to create some photo mats. The "Give Thanks" label is a cut out from the same stack. I added a few buttons and some stamped leaves (using a Close to My Heart stamp), and finished off the layout with some ribbon and orange chipboard numbers from October Afternoon. I can't wait to take some great pictures this Thanksgiving to fill up this layout!
