October Color Combo Blog Hop

Hi! Thanks for joining our blog hop today. If you arrived from Sugar and Scrap, thank you for hopping all the way down to me! If you are here and didn’t come from the previous blog, I am listing the hop below my post so you can go start back at the beginning if you wish!

Welcome to the Color Combo Blog Hop!! My life has been so busy, I have not posted since the summer! An update on where I've been will follow in another blog post.

I had a choice of three combos this month. They were all gorgeous, but this was where I settled.

Isn't it just beautiful? I wanted to photograph some leaves, but it gets lighter later and darker sooner and winter just kept me from it. So, I made a scrapbook page of my Thanksgiving last year. I don't think it's quite finished yet. I want to add something to the space on the right, but am not sure what yet. If you have ideas, please let me know!

It's made with My Mind's Eye So Sophie papers. The glitter stickers are Making Memories and the ribbon is from my stash. I just love the glitter stickers.

I glued down the velvet ribbon first and decided the layout needed a little more purple to pull it together. I added the purple on top of the velvet. I like the effect.

I also added a movable element on my page and hid the journaling. I didn't think about it when I made it, but I should have photographed how I did it. If you want to know, ask! I'd be happy to tell you.

Thank you again for stopping by and joining the blog hop! Your next stop is Handmade by Kirsty so please continue on to see her beautiful creation!

The entire hop:
