For this contest you must do a layout or altered project on what you are thankful for, whatever inspires you. Use fall/warm colors, journaling of some kind is a must, and you must alter something... your whole project can be an altered item or you can alter an item on your project (ie….alter one of your embellishments or your alphas) just be creative!
These must be new layouts or altered items and posted in the Creative Cookbooking Flickr Gallery with your name and in the description labeled "Thankful Contest". Please also link them to the challenge thread so we can all admire them too. You will not only be playing for an awesome prize provided by Cookbookin.com, but your winning layout/project will also be featured on our blog. The design team will select the winning layout/project by voting for their favorite layout/project based on the layout itself and by following the challenge as described. The deadline for this contest is November 30 at midnight, EST time.
For my design team example, I made a Thanksgiving Thoughts mini-album. The chipboard album is from K&CO and all the journaling blocks are from Pink Paislee. I used pumpkin spice Glimmer Mist to alter and "spice up" the album;) and once it was dry I put in all the journaling blocks. Embellishments include SEI and K&CO as well as assorted ribbons, buttons and felt from my stash. This year on Thanksgiving, each member of my family will write what they are especially thankful for in their own special spot in the book. Each member's initial already appears near their journaling block so there is NO GETTING OUT OF IT.
