SpiegelMom Scraps November Blog Hop

Welcome! You should have hopped on over here after viewing Hannah's amazing page! I loved all of her details, layers, and embellishments. This month at SpiegelMom Scraps we are working with the theme of "Cozy Up and Create" and I can't wait to share what we have in store for you throughout the month!!

I cannot believe it is November 1st already! It seems like the stores are already into Christmas mode and here in Arizona, the weather is just NOT screaming Autumn. This week, we have been in the high 90's every day and I am definitely ready for cooler weather, cozy fires, and the joys of fall to begin.

For this project, I worked with a photo of my daughter and her favorite cuddly blanket. There is nothing cozier to me than cuddling up with a warm, fuzzy blanket and my kids have caught that same love!

I started off pulling out some pieces from the Simple Stories Reset Girl collection because I knew I wanted to use fall colors to tone down this super bright and colorful picture. I also knew that I wanted to use mint green as the main color in the layout with some pink and coral accents. I smeared the Dazzlerz on the background paper to create a shelf for my photo and then just kept adding layers and embellishments.  The finishing touch is almost always sequins for me these days!! 

I really love how well the Reset Girl collection pairs up with my older Crate Paper Wonder alphabet as well as some of the ephemera from the new Maggie Holmes Gather collection. I even threw in an old Maggie Holmes roller phrase stamp. I just love mixing new and old collections to create unique looks!  

From the SpiegelMom Scraps store, I used the following products for this project:
   Sea U in the Mornin' Shimmerz Dazzlerz (here)
   Normandy Doilies 4 inch size (here)
   Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix (here)
I hope that you enjoyed this cozy layout and now you are off to check out the amazing layers and details from Sara Scraps! Enjoy the rest of the hop and make sure to enter to win this month's prize! Happy Crafting!!!
