Day 3 as Guest Designer for "Obsessed with Scrapbooking"


Hello everyone!  I can't believe it's already Day 3 of my Guest Designer week over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking!! This is all going by so fast, but I am having a wonderful time!.  I thought I would change things up a little today.  I know that many of you out there are scrapbookers, so I thought I would create a simple layout for your Thanksgiving Day memories.  I don't know about you, but I have really been enjoying the 8x8 size for a scrapbook - not too big or too small.  So that is what I made for you today.


This is a simple and quick two-page layout.  The "HAPPY Thanksgiving" title is cut from the Create A Critter 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge.  The brown cardstock for the title is from Bazzill.  



The polka dot cardstock for the photo mats and the top layer of the scrapbook page are from the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots Collection.  The solid cardstock for the middle layer of the scrapbook page is from Recollections.  And the bottom layer of cardstock is from the Recollections ~ Simply Autumn Collection.


This super cute little turkey is cut with the brand new Create A Critter 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge.  For those of you who may visit my blog, you probably already know how much I just LOVE googlie eyes.  And they are always absolutely perfect on all of these little critters!  All of the patterned papers for my little fella are from the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots Collection and the Recollections ~ Simply Autumn Collection.  I also added an extra layer of "feathers" by using the scallop die in the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies set.  I used pop dots for some fun dimension.  And I used red and yellow ~ Zig Writer Pens to color in the beak and that little jigglie thingy and those were stamped using the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Critter Faces stamp set.  I cut the scallop circle with a punch.  The "Turkey Time" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set.  The "WHAAAT" is made with the alphabet stamps in the My Creative Time ~ Just Simply Live stamp set.  And the "?" is from the My Creative Time ~ Cherish This Moment stamp set.




The little green rectangles/square, the little tree and little acorn are pieces I hand cut from a sheet of journaling boxes and images in the Recollections ~ Simply Autumn Collection. Both of the "Thankful for you" & "Give thanks" sentiments are from the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set.  And the bows on the journaling boxes are made with Hemp Twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


Besides my cute little turkey, this is my other favorite part of the layout.  This bow is made with Celebrate It ~ Harvest Ribbon.  Isn't it pretty?  And the little flower in the center is from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


I hope you like this layout.  I wanted it to be quick and simple, since I know we all get super busy with all of the meal preparation and family fun.  :)

**********GIVEAWAY**********
Ok everyone, how about a giveaway?  Or how about two giveaways?!?  Since it's Thanksgiving next week, I have the Simply Scarecrow ~ Cricut Cartridge & the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set to give away! Woot!  Woot!



All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  And then hop on over to Obsessed with Scrapbooking and leave a comment on my Guest Designer post over there.  I will pick one winner from all the comments this week on this blog and one winner from all the comments of the Guest Designer posts over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  SO...for more chances to win...make sure you leave a comment on each post for each day!  And don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you.  You will have until midnight MST on Sunday, November 18th to get your comments in.  I will use random.org to pick the winners.  And I will announce both winners on my blog on Tuesday, November 20th.  Good Luck!
****************************************

Ok, that's it for Day3.  Wow!  I just can't believe the week is half over...I'm getting sad already!!!  But I'm still super excited for the next two days.  So I will see you all again tomorrow.  And don't forget to stay tuned for Day 3 of the My Creative Time ~ November Release : Sneak Peek Week.
