It all started with some packaging!! :)

Hi everyone :) 

I hope all that celebrated had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving :) 

We had 11 of us at our home yesterday ...had turkey, lasagna (Brian can't eat turkey, so we make it for him ... and frankly, I don't like turkey ... so I eat the lasagna too! LOL!) and all the other traditional trimmings :) 


I wanted to share something I made yesterday morning before everyone woke up :) 

Brookie had gotten this toy from my in-laws and the packaging had a tree with a swing on it ... I told her I wanted it to make something with it :) 


So here is what I started with --

A "B" from Making Memories, a piece of Styrofoam and the tree/swing packaging from Brookie's toy :)




And here is what I made with it :)  I used Bella Blvd.'s Playdate and Snapshots collections :) 









And here are some photos from our Thanksgiving! :)


Our table :)




And some family photos :)



And some with my babies in honor of Aleida :)




MY FAVE PHOTO of the day :)






Our turkey :)




Our food :)




The desserts!! :)




And even Mr. Dandy got some pie :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  32. OMGosh that is the cutest recycling of packing ever! Love it!

    Now that is a smart way to set up for a crowd at Thanksgiving! It looks like a wonderful one. My BF in Florida was having over 32, and I am not quite sure how she was going to pull of seating. She has a small house. The good news is…it's Florida, so that means it was warm and they could sit outside I bet.

    I can see why that pic was your favorite of the day! Awesome!
