Whimsical Designs Blog Hop

Welcome! Welcome!
To the Whimsical Designs
"Give Thanks"
 Blog Hop!

The Hop runs from
 Friday 8th Nov 7pm EST
Sunday 10th Nov midnight EST.

For those of us in the UK
 that means midnight on Friday 8th
 until 5am Monday 11th.

(And to make it even more confusing,
 my Blog still thinks it lives in
 Perth, Western Australia!!!
 So the time and date on the post will be
 different again. I have tried to change it,
 but whichever country you set it up
 in is the country it stays
You should have arrived here from
 Nanne's Blog.
If not, return to
 Whimsical Designs,
 where a complete list of
participating Blogs
 is given.
You don't want to miss any
 of the gorgeous projects
 on show.

A recent photo of my gorgeous
 eldest Granddaughter
 from our recent trip
 to London

My background paper is from
 Webster's Designs
 "Nature's Storybook".

Title and date
Sassafras Lass
"Khaki Type"

The leaves are
 "Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves"
 Just Rite Stamps
on Vanilla
American Crafts cardstock.

spiced marmalade
rusty hinge
shabby shutters
antique linen
scattered straw
crushed olive
tea dye.

I then painted a thin coating of
 KindyGlitz "Crystalina"
 over them and
 the frame.

The frame is from
 "Ornate Frames 11".

In the wee plastic bag
 is one of the leaves
 from the photograph.

And I have written the story
of the leaf on the back
 of the layout.
 A treasured moment with my
