Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Double page layout

Happy Thanksgiving!  There is so much to be thankful for this year.  A job I love, my health, wonderful family and friends, and an amazing group of people (you all) who keep coming back for more!!!! I have been blogging for just about 2 years now and I love how it never gets old.  I miss doing it when I am on the road for work and my time in my craft room makes me happy--there is nothing like pure creativity--no rules, and endless possibilities!
I started doing it to get me to craft more--but now it's not only about the being creative, it's about interacting with you all.
I have been working on some big things for 2012 and not only will there be more layouts and less cards but tons more blog candy--
So here is a double page Thanksgiving layout from a Scrapbook Funaddicts kit.
It was super quick and easy--

I added some embossing, some pen work, and some velvet ribbon as a few finishing touches!.
These kits are a great way to get non-scrappers involved because there is little to do--but arrange glue and add photos!!!
Enjoy your holiday weekend and we will see you back here on Monday
Make it a great one-

Thanksgiving Layout and blog candy

Happy Monday everyone--I am reposting a layout I did last year for two reasosn--one I was not feeling well on Sunday so very little got done and I want to encourage you to get out of the scarpbook section of your local craft store.
I love finding things that are not ment for scrapbooking but I do it anyway--here is a perfect example.

These felt shapes were found at hobby lobby in the holiday section and I just had to use them on a layout--they add warmth (due to the fuzzy nature of the felt) and a 3d element.  Best part of all--I had to do nothing to make them page ready!!!  so check out the holiday sections through out the year as you never know what you will find

Ok now on to blog candy--I have another $25 DOLLAR gift card for Pink By Design--that is right--just be a follower and leave a comment today, Tuesday on my blog here and on the Pink By design blog and you will have three chances of winning--winner will be announced Tuesday evening by 9PM

Make it a great one
