Here's Sandra's fabulous layout she created based on this challenge:

And here's what Sandra shared about her layout:

I’m so thankful to have this lady in my life not only as an auntie but as a friend to chat too as well.

My ‘go to’ things in my stash are patterned paper, stamps, ephemera (or collectables), stencils and inks.  My patterned papers are from Stampin’ Up! and 13 @rts, and I love that you can mix and match collections and it’s also a great way to use some of your stash.

I created the background using a stencil and ink mixed with texture paste followed by splatters of another brand of ink.  I just love a bit of mixed media on a layout and you can mix anything from ink to glitter with texture paste for a great effect.  I also love heat embossing and I used a script stamp on the light orange background paper before embossing it.
Thank you so much Sandra for being out November Guest Designer and sharing your fabulous creations with us! 

We are looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful entries inspired by this challenge!

See you again tomorrow with more fabulous inspiration!
