Thankful for YOU!!!!!

Sometimes I read about my blog friends completed 3 layouts in a day, I can only "WOW" with my mouth opening wide!!! I admit that I am a slow crafter, especially when it comes to scrapbooking, it took me 3 days (oh well, not 3 whole day but still...) just to complete this layout


I used the lovely sketch from Sketchy Thursday December GDT challenge


*Warning* 
this post is photo heavy as I LOVE this layout because of the soft pink...


lovely corners.......



I used a doily as mask and sprayed with glimmer mist...


then used half of misted doily here......


stamped roses with distressed ink and colored them with chalk, I just love the soft look....


I always hate my own handwriting, using stamps with different font solved my problem.....


ok, 2 more photos......



If you want to play along with Sketchy Thursday December GDT Challenge, you better hurry up, they also have another sketch this week that you can play along....

Beautiful layout, Kirsty! One of your best colors to work in is pink! I think you are a pink girl at heart. Love all the details, and I am the same way, a slow crafter! Have a great Thursday!
