Gratitude with an Attitude Hop.....

Welcome to the 
Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop! 

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show you our 
"Gratitude with an Attitude" artwork
so here we go.
The blogger in front of me is Becky McClain   
So, if you came from there you are on track. 

 I don't know about anyone else, but I'm ready for Thanksgiving.  We always spend it with my husbands family. Everyone pitches in to bring a portion of the meal. It's really nice and relaxing for everyone. You know, most of the men are watching football or talking sports while the women are in the kitchen getting all the fixings together for it to be devoured in less than an hour...Usually the same ol' same ol'. But for us, the actual getting together and spending some time with family is a Blessing. With everyone's schedules and other families spread across the world it's the one time we can truly enjoy catching up and relaxing after the meal. Here is my creation for the Hop. I am ready to put this years pics into my 
"I'm Grateful for" page.  
We have many things to be Grateful for and 
Family is number ONE.

Front view with the Flip Flap closed.
I stamped the outer edge of the 12" x 12" and the 8"x 12" with the
elegant doily from the Sweet & Lovely stamp set.
I twisted and turned the stamp set to fit as close to each other and
stamped off the base page and the 4.5 x 4.5 picture mat to
coordinate the design. I added icons and words cut
from the Artbooking Cartridge. I also added my Title
stamped onto the Dimensional Elements.
Here you see where I used the Dimensional Elements as the
title accent and also as the opening accent to
open the Flip Flap.

Here you see the complete base page and the inner Flip Flap.
The 4 top mats are 3" x 3", The 2 bottom mats are 4" x 6"

I used the following items to create this layout.
CTMH  Kraft, Olive, & Autumn Terracotta Cardstock
CTMH  Olive, Chocolate, & Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad
CTMH  Stamp Sets = Sweet & Lovely D1571 & 
                                   A Friend Like You B1410
CTMH  12" Assorted Flip Flaps (One 12"x 8") Z1325
CTMH  Dimensional Elements (Awards) Z1792
CTMH  Glitter Glitz Gel (Stardust) Z1313
CTMH  Artbooking Cricut Cartridge (Bundle Z1096)

Here is the Journal Spot I made then folded  
for special notes on what my
favorite part of the Thanksgiving Meal is.
Here you see where I accented the Icon and the 
first letter with my favorite bling, 
Glitter Glitz Gel in stardust.
