Things I'm Thankful For Blog Hop November 18-19 Day 2



Welcome to the Things I'm Thankful For Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from 
November 18th through November 19th. 


We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with Thanksgiving and things we are thankful for and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way. If you have come from Ashley's Blog you are right on track if not you can start at the beginning (http://honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/). I am so glad you joined us today!



Here is my project I would like to share with you today =D For the projects I made for you today...I took a different angle. Instead of scrapping about turkeys, pilgrims and the like, I decided to make layouts of what I am thankful for: My Family
So I have a two page layout of the "Joys of My Life" layout to share with you
and a one page layout of "My family portrait" I would like to share.

Here is the look at the entire two page layout


Page One


Page Two


For this layout I used papers from the DCWV Taj Mahal paper stack. I also used
Prima flowers, Imaginise flowers and journal cards from Reminisce's "Unwritten Journal Tablet" the metal alpha's I had purchased from Joann fabrics. The distress metal frame is from Making Memories. The chipboard frame was a bare chipboard frame also from Imaginise. 

Here is the second layout I have to share with you:


Thank you so much for stopping by along this blog hop I hope you are getting lots of inspiration and ideas from all these talented ladies! 
If you are not a follower of my blog yet I would love for you to become one and stay in touch =D I also have a Facebook Fanpage if you would like to stop by and "like" my page to follow along with me I would be thrilled. Here is the link:

You are now off to see Mindy's Blog to see what she has to share with you! Happy Creating!

Here is the line up


I have something different in store for you today! I love the Christmas holiday season and all the decorations, music, and the ambiance of excitement all around. To me, the Christmas season begins the day after Halloween lol! If the decision were left to me...I would have the Christmas tree up the day after Halloween hahaha! So on November 1st I brought out the Christmas tree box and my husband rolled his eyes and said "Seriously?" and I told him that I had this bright idea of making it a "Thankful tree" =) I could have my tree up and turn it into a Thanksgiving tradition. 
I made leaves with my Cricut machine using the "Accent Essentials" cartridge and I put K and Company 3D sticker accents on them of things we are thankful for. I then added ribbon and hung it on the tree. Each day we add more leaves to the tree as we talk about what we are thankful for each day. The garland this was a HUGE undertaking lol!! It was simple to make but took 3 straight days from morning to night to finish it. I bought 4 yards of three different material and cut the material into 7inch by 1 inch strips. I tied them into little pinwheels with 4 strips for each one. I have a 7ft tree and it took all 12 yards of the material lol!! I loved how it turned out though and WOW I can't stop looking at our tree.




Thank you so much for stopping by my blog along this hop! Please come back tomorrow 
and I will have more to show and tell =)
