Crafty Secret's Linky Party and Monthly Challenge!

Welcome to the October Crafty Secrets Linky Challenge and Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart. The design team was challenged to create a Thanksgiving themed project or a project that expresses thankfulness and gratitude. We hope you will join us for the hop, and then visit the Crafty Secrets BLOG where you can find a free download and details for entering the challenge yourself.

I am often asked how I create. I am a self proclaimed "tornado" scrapper!  I seriously have no rhyme or reason most of the time.  I tend to look at my focal image, like the one here from the Little Blessings, Creative Scraps collection, and start pulling items that are in the same color scheme. The strip of baby blue paper was a left over piece from the Birds and Bloom Digital Paper collection. Through a process of trial and error, I find things I like with the image....and things I don't.

I loved the browns and blues and picked coordinating colors with a pop of gold.  The delicious silk ribbon is from the Stamp Simply store. I threaded it through the Spellbinder's die I used for a bit more contrast. I added a scattering of gold sequins to finish it off!
