Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

How are you doing?  Are you ready for turkey and stuffing, U.S. peeps? ;) 
Well, it has been very quiet around this blog lately due to a loss in our family.  My mind hasn't been in a creative mood for a while.  And even when my hands desire to create, my mind is usually blank.

However, today I am sharing a layout that I managed to create for the new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  The challenge is "anything goes."  Since we are celebrating Thanksgiving in the U.S. this Thursday the 27th, I decided to create a layout of the things I'm grateful for.

I'm so grateful for MANY things, but I narrowed it down to family, friends, and education/career. 

I fussy cut the leaves from pattern paper, which has these golden swirls that reflect the light.  So pretty in real life.

I cut small tags for my journaling and tucked them under the leaves.

I wanted to make all my pictures into black and white ones, but my printer was not cooperating.  The kid who's sitting like a frog is my brother and I always say "ribbet" each time I see this picture. ;)

Ok, friends, take some time to have some crafty fun and share your project with us at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with all your loved ones.

Happy Crafting,
