Now before you start hopping here's a bit of inspiration! 

I have to share another project using Echo Park's Happy Holiday Collection. I wanted to scrap this adorable photo for my good friend, Kathleen, and you just have to love this collection for cute photos like this. It's just so cheerful and fun - plus it pairs perfectly with the Ultra White Felt cardstock by Carta Bella. Totally reminds me of sparkly lights and candy canes. And I just had to try a white on white title.... love it!  Then had to do a white on white border as well. The nice thick twine is from May Arts.

Now lets talk about stickers.... I know some of you avoid them, but this layout is full of some of the cutest stickers and they look good, huh? Twelve stickers! Just take them up a notch by adding some twine, rhinestones, or simply layering with some foam squares. And don't forget to brush the sticky backs with baby powder after adding the foam squares so that they don't stick to things that aren't planned. :) And a big thanks to Kathleen for letting me borrow her adorable family!

Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate!
