so blessed

This week I used Jen's Scrappy Sunday challenge as my inspiration for my two-page Thanksgiving layout.  I did change it up some, but I kept the same picture format.  I think I used all free products on this page also.  I am lovin' that.  I like the challenge of trying to find products that didn't come in a kit and make them work together on a page.  

You can click on the pages to read the journaling.  I used the same technique that I learned on the "90 Years Young" page.  I took a picture of the table before we ate and I used it as my background by changing it to soft light and playing with the opacity.

Tate was not a happy camper in our main picture.  Grandma kept trying to get him to smile.  I told her just to take the picture and he would see how he looked.  When I was putting this layout together, he asked me if anyone else was going to see it.  Of course, the whole world...LOL!  I think he will be happy next time.

My fellow Papercraft Planet Super Nova, Jen Tapler, is hosting a challenge on her blog with over $250 worth of blog candy up for grabs. You can read all the details HERE on Jen's blog. Jen's father has Alzheimer's disease and by participating in her challenge, you will be helping benefit the Alzheimer's Association. All you have to do is create a card, post a photo of it with a link back to Jen's challenge, and then mail Jen the card. In May, to kick off her Annual Stamp Out Alzheimer's Event, Jen will be hosting a charity auction where she will be auctioning off decorated Card Organizer tins full of all of our handcrafted cards. The money from those auctions will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. Check it out!

Happy Stamping and Scrapping!
