TPE #227 - Be Thankful -Thanksgiving Theme

Monday, November 25, 2013

Good Morning!  
It's Monday morning and the beginning of a holiday week for us in the U.S.!  
Thanksgiving is just 3 days away.  

Hope everyone has some big appetites building up for blessed and thankful feasts(and a little football) on Thursday!

So in keeping with the holiday,
over at
The Pink Elephant Challenge 
this week, 
the challenge is 

"Be Thankful"
or Thanksgiving Theme.

Ella, my fellow designers and I have 
some wonderful "thankful" projects 
to share with you 
hopefully inspire you to play along!

Below is my project:

I decided to make something 
decorative and holiday themed 
for my kitchen. 

STAMPS: Image -digital stamp(Create with TLC); Sentiment - Digital (D2D Stamps)
PAPER: White and cream cardstock; Orange glitter cardstock; 
INK: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Copics: Brown spray paint (Frame).
EXTRAS: Wooden decorative photo frame; decorative square Nestabilities (Spellbinders); blossom die cut; burlap material; orange daisy fabric flower; leather flower(Recollections); leaves (Prima); ribbon; crystal Stickles, coat hanger.

This project took about three different turns 
from its original path of using a wooden tray, 
something I've done before, 
to finally evolve into its final product.  

I added the flower/bow combo last 
as I just didn't like the hanger 
looking all cold and ugly.

But, I'm still playing around 
with the flower 
as I'm not quite satisfied with it.

Here, I ditched the flower all together and think I like it better:

As you see, kitchen wall is orange.  My kitchen is actually brown and orange walls and cream cabinets, kind of a fall theme all year round!  LOL  

Don't forget 
to stop by 
to see 
what the other Designers have created.  

Visit their blogs and leave them some blog luv.

Then, join us this week 
create a "thankful" project!


Been wanting to play at 4CraftyChicks for several weeks now and now have the chance.

Have a 
blessed, ful"filling", and safe

I love the cup nestled into the pumpkin! And that flower is amazing - I like the frame better without it in this case, but I can't wait to see where you decide to use it :)

This is just gorgeous Nance! I like it better without the bow and flower myself, but look forward to seeing what you decide to use them on! Thanks for playing along with the Drunken Stampers this week for the Diner challenge!
