December Guest Design Team Layout

I decided to try my hand at Sketchy Thursday's December Guest Design Team Member. I'm kinda excited as this is my first try at something like this, and I figured I had a good as shot as anyone else, I had to use this sketch:

and this prompt: Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend.

The layout with pics from 2007 is of me, my Daughter Tiffany, and Friend Eli. Eli had come down for the weekend to share in our Thanksgiving and to have a Girls Weekend of Scrappin', and of course to join Tiffany and I in our annual Black Friday shopping at Wal*Mart:

Here is what I used and how I made it: I couldn't find the right color paper so I made my own using white CTMH cardstock, stamped with CTMH stamps using the $ stamp from Private Eye Tiny Numbers, Alphabets sets W189 and W190 (couldn't find a name) and the * stamp from the Chocolate Alphabet Small set (cause we were at Wal*Mart!). After stamping, I then used my chalks to get the color I wanted. I also used black glitter fabric puff paint on some of the larger $ signs to make them pop. I cut the edges of the white cardstock and then used a destresser to kinda rough up the edges, then sewed it to my black CTMH Cardstock. (when the puff paint is close to the edge you should sew BEFORE using it, and then just sew 1 thickness, lesson learned!). Black Friday and the $ on the left of the pics were cut using my Silhouette, Black and $ is Arial Black Bold font and friday is Harlow Solid Italic font. I painted the Black Friday with Icicle Stickles, and then sprayed the $ with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to make them shine, and 2 of them have pop dots to make them stand out. I added some staples to the 2 little journal strips. The bottom journal tag is a punch that I cut down to the size I needed and attached with a safety pin. Rick Rack and flowers are from my stash, I did add some of the same color of chalk to a white flower to give it the same hue as the paper, and the center flower brad I added some CTMH Liquid Glass to to give it a little shine. The silver brads at the bottom spell out shopping, and are from my stash.
Thanks for taking a look!
Hope you have a GREAT Day!
