And the month before Christmas....

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of time for family, food, and shopping.  I did not participate in Black Friday shopping...I personally think it's totally nuts!  But, for those of you that did participate and scored that awesome deal....YAY!

I've really enjoyed creating different Fall/Thanksgiving projects this year. I was able to catch up on some layouts and created some cute cards too!  Today I wanted to share the last two projects that I made.  First is a layout that I created using Creative Scrappers Sketch #131.  I've been waiting to scrap these gorgeous photos of my DS that a friend took a few years ago (2007).  I thought this sketch was great to show off my two fave shots. All supplies are Creative Memories.

And finally here is a little mini that I created out of one sheet of patterned paper.  I thought this was an awesome idea that I got from crafty blogger Christie! There are 8 pockets inside with tags that list a family members name and why I am thankful for them. Again, all supplies, except for the cool fibers are Creative Memories.

If you want to see more of my creations using these awesome CM papers, check out my CM blog

Moxie Fab?

Happy Saturday everyone!  We are gearing up for a sleep over party for my just turned 8 groovy girl!  It's going to be filled with giggles and fun! 

Have you experience Moxie Fab World?  If you have not, you simply must!  I just love visiting the Moxie Fab World blog.  Cath always provides such "moxie fab" inspiration....from everywhere!  This week, inspiration came from Kate's Paperie.  I was immediately drawn to the Moroccan Flare Holiday Ornament.

The colors are just beautiful.  Here's where the inspiration led..

The patterned paper is BG Marrakech.  I thought it was just the right pattern.  The card stock is CM.  I embossed the top of the ornaments and the "Joy" with red glitter embossing powder.  I just love the way this card turned out.  Thanks Cath (and Kate) for the inspiration!

Saving Thanksgiving!

Paper Issues is saving Thanksgiving!  Over on their blog, they are collecting Thanksgiving themed projects!  I think this is a great idea since Thanksgiving often gets overlooked between Halloween and Christmas!  Thanks Paper Issues for saving Thanksgiving!

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you have had a great week!  I simply cannot believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and well, you know what comes after that!  Sheesh, can this year fly by any faster:?!?!

This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays we are looking for projects that have no flowers...not even on the paper!  Easy, right?  I think fall is the perfect time for a challenge like this since everyone is using leaves instead of flowers anyway!  I created this Happy Thanksgiving card ~

We would love to see what you create! Come on and join us!

Happy Saturday everyone!  Saturdays are so my favorite day of the week ~ no required activities other than those we choose!!!

This week at Stamp,Scrap, and Doodle we are feeling the fall season!  We want to see your fall creations!  Our sponsor this week is Inktegrity, a company with cute images and a great little challenge blog!  The DT created some cute, cute fall cards!  Be sure and check them out HERE!
For my card, I took a little inspiration (X2) from the Creative Memories Project Center.  I just love that place!  First, I used the idea of the punch art turkey....isn't he cute?!?! The card base was inspired by a card that is also showcased on the Project Center.  I love the way it turned out and I know that I am gonna be making more of these cute little turkeys!!  I'm sure that I will get better at feather arrangement as I make more!!!

We would love to see what you are creating for the fall season!  Maybe it's a card, a layout, a home decor item....whatever it is .... link it up!  We would love to come visit your blog!
