Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Welcome to Thursday.... and us scrappers don't take days off for the holidays right...??

So today at SKETCHES IN THYME we have this really cool 2 page sketch.
(we have switched the 3rd Thursday of the month from "open" sketches to our own 2 pagers...YEA!!)

And here is my layout of when we went to the Patriot's Day celebration (for 9-11)
at Paseo Hills park on 9/10/11

And a few more to share:

First...we are doing Christmas Crafts each week...each week a DT member posts a xmas craft they made.  So I created a xmas card holder so I have somewhere to finally store and display my cards...

Julie...look at the left pocket...wink!!

Also this layout from our sketch challenge using my Nov DT kit that was Prima North Country:

Don't eat too much today, ok?!!!

Playing Catch up!! I really messed this up...  Over at SKETCHES IN THYME, I'm on the DT rotation that posted LAST week (and next week)... since we do every other week..  but I was an "over achiever" and did a layout for my "off" week...and it posted yesterday on the blog... but I didn't post it HERE on my blog...cuz I got the weeks mixed up and didn't check my "chart" well enough... DUH!!!   So here it is.... on to TODAY's business....  FROSTED DESIGNS Fabulous Friday challenge.... this week is....
DIE CUTS!!!!  So, I wasn't sure if I should use a "die cut paper" or "an actual die cut"... I don't have a die cut machine...  so, I used both..  The large scallop paper is Die-Cut (it's actually a calender and i turned it upside down and covered up the "months")  and the Title "Too Cute" is a die cut that I've had in my stash...FOR EVAH!!!

So on to some items for my DT at MEMORABLE SEASONS ...

I issued a challenge to use the word "CRAZY" in your title or journaling..
Here is my layout using my Nov DT kit featuring Prima North Country...

And... Sally issued a recipe challenge...
2 photos, 3 leaves, stitching, scallop border & a banner.
I used a sketch from Sketch Inspiration and this is what I made: absolute favorite from this post is this one...
Audrey issued a challenge to use this Ad as inspiration:

I LOVED the squares and i took some chipboard that was "checkered" and 2 frames and misted onto this Kraft background.  Then I re-used the frames in a different position and played with a few embellies and got this result:

Thanks for visiting me today!!

Climb to the Top & My Little Pony

Today at SKETCHES IN THYME we have this fun sketch...

And my DT layout... I flipped the photos and pp, but left the title up the left side.
This is a friend of Joseph's at his 8th B-day party (Joseph's b-day)

And a layout for MEMORABLE SEASONS to highlight "details"
My details are the cowgirl (fabric stitched on), the Rhinestones & the title ... the title because I'd never have thought of it... but I asked the 2 girls (twins) what the title should be and it was what they came up with!

These layouts are all for friends... btw..the boy in the first layout and the girls in the second are both of these layouts are gifts for our family friends.!!
