Scrap Your Story - Grateful

Today brings yet another new challenge at Scrap Your Story! This week's challenge is to use CORK!! I was pretty baffled by this challenge until I found a lovely piece of paper by Crate Paper that looks like cork! I was so excited because I really had NOTHING else to use for this challenge!

I was too much of a wimp and totally could not get myself to use the cork paper for the entire background. Nope. Not Me. I put a lovely piece of Dear Lizzy paper over it and stitched the edges (as well as the adorable clouds). I thought that the cork paper worked well with my photos from the winery. There was a lot of browns in the photo that matched well.


I used some bits and pieces from the current Scrapbook Circle kit that is full of Dear Lizzy goodness. I have made a lot of layouts with that collection, but still have SO much left from it! 


A close up of one of my clusters. Dear Lizzy stickers as well as a Studio Calico arrow sticker. 


And my corner that I stitched the clouds on and added my own little phrase sticker to go with the rest. And as always.. enamel dots! They fit everywhere! :) There is also a challenge right now going on over at Paper issues to use CLOUDS on your project! :) 

Be sure to link up your cork layouts to Scrap Your Story!! I can't wait to see what you have to show! I am sure many will be more creative than me!

Totally LOVE the way you've used pics from the winery with the cork! You're so smart! I never would've thought of that, and the hand stitching and collection of items around your photo are perfectly delicious! So fun, Andrea!
