*Thanksgiving 2009*

I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving (those that celebrate the holiday)!

We had a great day! We left to go to my mom's house around 10:30 that morning....everyone was supposed to show up around 1:00 for the big meal. We had soooo much food! And it was SOOO good! We had turkey (of course!), stuffing, mashed potatoes, wild rice, corn, peas, potatoe bread, sweet potatoe casserole, cranberry sauce...and lots of desserts. My fave was the pecan pie and a pumpkin cheesecake that my cousin, Cassy, made...SOOO good!

This is a layout I made for Let's Capture Our Memories...we had to take a layout and interpret it into our own layout - this was my result. This is an old family picture on the Mann's side of the family :-)

This is a layout I did with the November Studio Calico kit. Not sure why the colors look so drab real life, it is quite colorful :-) I really didn't like those new Hambly rubons when they first came out - but after getting a pack of them in the kit...yeah, I like 'em now ;-)

And more Thanksgiving pictures...not sure why they are separated from the top ones..*sigh*...good ole'
That is my dad, Troy, and of course, Mr. Max!
We should be doing the reveal for the November Let's Capture Our Memories kit before too much longer! I had alot of fun with this one! I also worked on some handmade snowflake ornaments and worked up a quick tutorial for making one of them!

And after working on the layouts, this is what my desk looks like. I seriously need to clean up my scrapping area...I just have been putting it off....realllly need to do that this evening :-)
Happy Saturday!
