Happy and Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends who are celebrating with family today.  Even if you do not celebrate Thanksgiving it is still a great time to join us and reflect on all the things you are thankful for.  

I am thankful for my husband, children and family.
I am thankful for my health and the life I am living.
I am thankful for all of you (my followers, customers and design team members).  
Your continued support makes The Memory Nest worth it all!!  

Becky is back today sharing another creation from the Happy Go Lucky Collection by Fancy Pants.  
I love how she combined the great patterned papers of this collection with that adorable photo with 
her dog.  Love the title and the sentiment in the bottom corner. Another great layout.  This collection 
is on sale this month at The Memory Nest.  Make sure to check out our Black Friday Deals!

Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S.  Remember I am starting my December Daily with Thanksgiving (even though it is not December).  If you are joining along in documenting your December, please make sure to stop by next week for our blog hop full of inspiration and our link-up.  I look forward to seeing what everyone creates.

Happy Go Lucky and Collecting Moments

Happy Monday. Design team members Becky and Jen are sharing layouts 
they created from two different Fancy Pants collections.

Becky is designing with Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky.  The colors in this collection are so fun.  
I love the title of her page (her picture was taken years ago).  And I love those stars cut out of 
corrugated paper.  Such a clever use of that material and great way to add texture.

Jen is back sharing two more layouts from another Fancy Pants Collection ~ Collecting Moments.  
I love how Jen also used the corrugated paper on her layout to add texture and dimension to 
her photos.  The colors in this collection are great for documenting moments in your life that you 
want to remember especially because the stickers have such great sayings.  I love how Jen mixed 
different  patterned papers in the bottom layout!

Both of these Fancy Pants collections are available at The Memory Nest.
The November featured items (the supplies the design team members 
create with) including Collecting Moments and Happy Go Lucky
 are on sale during the month of November!

Happy Scrapping,

Girls, Be Yourself

Good morning.  I have three layouts for you today.  I have been busy scrapping away
 and playing along with challenges.  There are so many great ones out there.  

The sketch I used was by Laura Whittaker form Stuck!? Sketches September Challenge!
I enjoyed creating with this sketch and I look forward to creating with others by Laura.

This page was created using a sketch from Scrappy Friends

I also created a layout using their October sketch!

Thank you, Brenda.  I had a lot of fun using your sketches to create these layouts!
Will be creating with others too I am sure.

The Memories and Wild and Free Collections are available at The Memory Nest.

Happy Scrapping,

Hello Everyone. Sally Cranney is sharing her beautiful layout using the Memorabilia Collection by Teresa Collins.  This kit combines soft yellow and blues with black and the ever popular chalk look.  I love how Sally created her title and included a beautiful cluster with a subtitle for her layout.

Here is a closer look at the kit. 

Happy Memories.
