Wasn't able to complete the challenge back in February, but just finished my layout here: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/gallery/member/188495-sassiescrapper/1910816-turning-dreams-into-plans/ Thanks so much for the inspiration!
the last "letter background" idea was fabulous to use up left over letter stickers and thickers!
I don't think you have ever made anything that didn't make me gasp.
I love this so much! I, like most peas, have a healthy stash of Thickers. I'm totally going to lift this for my OLW quote for 2013. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
This is a scrap your stash I can really get on board with! I have SO many thicker.

If you're like me, then you have more Thickers than you'll ever be able to use in a lifetime. The problem is American Crafts keeps coming up with more fonts, sizes, textures, colors, and combinations that I HAVE to HAVE! One of my favorite ways to use up my brand new and older Thickers is to create a super long title showcasing a variety of my favorite Thickers. These sweet photos of my daughter Jane and my mother-in-law were perfect for the long title “Some times the smallest things take up the most space in our hearts.” I chose fonts, colors, and sizes that matched the brand new Lucky Charm line by Dear Lizzy. Some fonts are new, some are straight from my stash. They all work well together based on the colors pulled from the photos and line. The important thing to remember is I can make the Thickers work the way I want them to to make them fit the space. Overlap them to squeeze them in a tight area or space them out to fit a larger area.
Journaling says: Here's Nana holding two-week old baby Jane at our annual Evans Family Reunion this year in Salem, Oregon. They look so happy cuddling.
How to: The video shows how to create the layout from start to finish. Here it is written: Sketch out your design, count up how many words are in the title, then choose the same amount of Thickers fonts as words. Die cut a large heart and trace it onto a patterned paper background; erase most of the pencil lines then stitch over the traced heart to define the edges. Fill in the heart with the Thickers. Don't press too hard on the Thickers until you're sure of the placement. Squeeze letters together by overlapping them or space them out to make them fit in the heart accordingly. Create photo mats from layers of patterned paper and vellum, decorate them with embellishment clusters, and stick them down. Drop spray mists and smatterings of jewels and pearls to finish.
Challenge: Use Thickers to create a long title. Every month a winner from all the SCRAP YOUR STASH entries will be drawn and rewarded with a $10 gift certificate. Winner will be announced on the 2Peas blog!
