I finally feel like I've been getting my scrap on! 
DEER & FAWN has this stunning inspiration photo:
SUPER cute!! Here's what I created:
Feathers! Of COURSE I had to add some....with glitter!
 Took inspiration from this fabulous colour combo, too.
Below you can see the stencil from Dusty Attic:
 Used up some of the lovely Maggie Holmes vellum bits...
 Gotta have a flair! A Piece of Cake Designs....
 And I really had fun with a bit of stitching and threads:
 And finally, a closie of the stickers:

The challenge is 'WHO ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?'
I am thankful to have a WONDERFUL grandfather in my life.
I lived with him [& Mam] for 3 years while I went to High School.
He died a long time ago, but I came across this original photo & it
simply HAD to be scrapped!
 That beige button has jungle green colours on the other side.
Had it for ages, Hadn't thought to turn it over!!! 
The smiley face is from Jennifer Grace...
and below, the cork & dotty button is a gift from my friend Jo R...
the 'love' card is done by my other friend, Jo T!!!!:
 I used pencil to journal on the card. No reason. Just felt like it!!!
The other journaling, on the below photo, is with pen. More cork from Jenn G
& Jo R!!!
 And the whole page. More paper from the VERY generous Ronda Palazzari:
I often admire big 'banners' with pp....finally got to indulge myself with some!!
Thanks for looking!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
