Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for September!! I'm so excited to participate in this amazing blog hop with my fellow Mediterranean Achiever Demonstrator's from around the world!! This month our theme is the Thankfulness as it is our last hop for the Mediterranean Trip. Next month those that have earned the trip to Thailand in 2017 will be hopping each month. We are so excited to share the many ways we are "Thankful for" and be prepared to be inspired with a variety of projects and products!!
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Anne's blog.
My project that I created for today's blog was a designed around the new Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and the coornidating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. These two items along with the Cookie Cutter Christmas are my top favourites from the Holiday Catalogues. The images are so adorable and there is so much you can do with these adorable little characters!!
I thought this Scarecrow image was perfect for this time of year. We are entering my favourite season FALL!! I love everything that Fall has to offer, the beautiful colours in the trees, the cooler days, the yummy pumpkin and apple desserts, and more time spent with family inside. There are the many things that I'm thankful for at this time of year. We will be celebrating "Thanksgiving" here next weekend and I have a lot to be thankful for this year: my family, my health, my friends, my amazing Stampin' Up! business, and all the support from my family, friends and customers.
I love that paper, ink and stamps has brought us together as one big family where we enjoy spending time with each other creating beautiful gifts from the heart to give to family and friends. It's their enthusiastic that keeps me going and for that I'm thankful for!! I know that joining Stampin' Up! almost 10 years ago was one of the best decisions that I ever made and I look forward to the next 10 years...thank you!!!
I coloured my little scarecrow using the following colours: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Dapper Denim, Soft Suede and Tangerine Tango markers. These colours say "Fall to me". I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper for my circle that I cut out with my Big Shot and the Layering Circle framelits. I love layering my elements and thought it would be great to have a frame behind the scarecrow, that was creating using the Layering Square Framelits and the Big Shot machine!!
Another Cherry Cobbler circle, some copper metallic thread and some Pumpkin Pie Enamel dots was the finishing touches on my card. I love this little greeting from the One Meaning stamp set...A little Thanks!!!
