Thursday Jillibean Thanks

Happy Thursday,

I have made a huge commitment for 2014 to use up my paper stash.  I started with the Echo Park glue and paste collection and I used EVERY drop of it.  It felt sooo awesome to finish it off.  Soo my next collection is one that I bought  2  years ago and I never used it. I LOVE JIllibean collections and  It has been sitting on my shelf!  So now this is my second collection that I am going to finish off!

For my layout I decided to matt all the photos in brown to really make them pop!  The photo is one of my boys shopping for all the fall flowers and pumpkins to decorate the house! I love it when the boys will let me take their picture together!!
supplies
cardstock- core'dinations
paper, stickers- die cuts- alphabets- JIllibean Soup

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a new card using some Winter Moxxie!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

I really like this! The matting looks fab...one of my fave things to do for pop appeal. I need to really do have a de-stashing goal, too. You might just motivate me!
