Opal Club — Layout 8

Here in the U.S., most of us are busily into Thanksgiving Day preparations, so I decided to go easy on this week’s sketch after the madness of the last one with 11 photos.

Thoughts of gratitude fill the air and I must admit that I’m pretty thankful that I was able to work with today’s steal, Margarita by American Crafts. While some of you may be thankful for an actual margarita to help you through the day of preparations, I am thankful for the bright and happy colors that this collection contains. Why do you ask? Because it instantly made me think of this photo that was taken in the spring of one of our amazing ScrapbookSteals friends, Heather Conklin and myself. And yes. I’m thankful for her. <3

I love how bright and happy this collection is. I love the embellishments, the trims and the flower brads are pretty fantastic too!

Oh and the Thickers? ::swoon:: Can you ever really have enough? Especially when they sparkle?

Now it’s time to announce our two lucky winners from the crazy Opal 7 sketch. Congratulations are in order for Cathryn Povec,
