The CP Design Team is Thankful for.......

The Croppin Paradise Design Team has a lot to be thankful for this year.... The CP store has been bountiful - filled with beautiful pattern papers, sparkling embellishments and alphabets galore! The CP forum has been blessed with the friendly and caring members; a place where true friendships have formed ..... and the CP blog has been filled with inspiration!

In honor of Thanksgiving, the CP Design Team has created layouts showcasing the many things they are thankful for - We hope it will inspire you to create a layout (or two) remembering what you are thankful for!

Weekly Challenge 11/22

The challenge for this week is a simple one! Alter your alphabet to match your layout better!

For my layout, I used the Jillibean Soup cooregated alpha in white and I used two colors of Glimmer Mist to give them some color and some shine..a little yellow and a little truffle made them pop and really gave a sweet tone to the layout, I think!

Here's a close up:


Pink Paislee Queen Bee papers

Basic grey Basics Manila Paper

Jillibean Soup alphas (the white are sold out but there are other colors!)

Basic grey Paper Ribbon

Prima Sugar Plum flowers
