Thankful layout, SLS DT call, Frosted Designs hop and FAB GIVAWAY!!!!

Hey gals,

Finally a layout!  This layout shows the awesome spread we had at my mother-in-laws house on Thanksgiving.  There was turkey, ham, mash potatoes, the whole works.  We are so very lucky to be able to have this wonderful meal, without any real worries that so many people do all over the world.  So I wanted to show how lucky and thankful we are.  Especially Lara, she could hardly wait ;)  The paper is Basic Grey, and I used Luminarte for the glitter on the leaves, Stickles on the chipboard flourishes, and adhesive spray and glitter on the flowers.  Now that's alot of bling!  Not only does Frosted Designs have this cool sketch, but they have a glitter challenge, and fabulous blog hop going on now too.  You can check it out here.


Also, Sassy 'Lil Sketches has a Design Team Call for both sketches and paper.  Much as a badly wanted to stay on their design team,  I have decided to to say goodbye at the end of January.  They have a fabulous new forum, and I just think keeping up with the blog and the forum would be a little too tough, especially as my girl only goes to preschool a few days a week in the morning.  :(((((  I will say this is the best Design Team I have ever been a part of and I so recommend sending them your application.  They are the sweetest!!!  And of course, the sketches rock!  I will miss you gals so much!! You can find out more information HERE.

On a happier note, Scrap Our Stash has invited me to stay on as a Designer.  They graciously offered to let my start next month because the holidays are so crazy for every.  They are a great blog who encourage you to use your stash in different ways.  They also feature tips, pages, and tutorials from not only their DT, but also their followers.  It's a really fun way to get yourself out there.  You can find them
http://scrapourstash.blogspot.com/.

I also wanted to make sure you knew about a FANTASTIC giveaway.  It is soooo incredible you have to go to Erica's blog to see all the pictures of all the goodies she is giving out!  It's seriously spectacular!!!  Go, run, HERE.

I've got more but I know you are all busy busy busy, so I'll save it for this weekend.  I was originally planning to go to Prima's Warehouse Sale bright and early this morning, but have taken pity on Chris and told him I would stay home so he could sleep in.  He has been working all kinds of crazy long hours, poor guy.  And I think he needs sleep more than I need Prima flowers...right?!

Have a fabulous night gals,

Denise
