When she rules the camera :)

Hi everyone!!!! :)

I know that everyone is in Thanksgiving mode ... so I am going to thank you for taking the time to stop by today and also wish all that celebrate a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!!! :) 

And here is a little pilgrim named Brookie to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!! :)

This was from her recent First Grade Pilgrim play at her school :) 




I have been off work the past few days and I played along with a few challenges :) 

First was for My Mind's Eye latest sketch :) 

Here is their sketch --

Ronda Palazzari MME November Sketch 

And here is my take on it  --



I used their Cut & Paste collection and also their Chalk Studio collection :) 








The next challenge I played along with was Frosted Designs :) 

Their challenge was to use at least one of these 11 elements on your page --
  1. Tags;
  2. Paper layering
  3. Washi tape
  4. Flags/banners
  5. Patchwork
  6. Circles
  7. Stitching
  8. Stars
  9. Flowers
  10. Buttons 
  11. Arrows
I did Patchwork, Circles and Stitching :) 

I used Crate's Acorn Avenue collection on my page :) 










And while I had this collection out ... I also played along with Let's Get Sketchy's latest sketch :)

Here is their sketch :) 

 


And here is my take on it :)











I was inspired by the colors in this photo they provided for inspiration :) 



And here is their sketch :) 

 



And here is my take on it :) 

 I used Bo Bunny's Elf Magic collection on my layout :) 









I also wanted to share our Thanksgiving tables that I got ready on Tuesday :)   (we were supposed to have 17 people total over on Thanksgiving ... but on late Tuesday, a family had to cancel due to their children being sick :( ... so now I have pushed the tables together and rearranged some things from this photo... lol!!)   I am linking this photo up at Our Beautiful World ..... their theme was Thanksgiving ... and Thanksgiving to us is having family and friends over to celebrate what we are thankful for :)






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

  41. You are SO clever!!!!
    I love the projects, Julie. Each one is colorful, fun, and uniquely you. But my favorite of all is the doll layout. That is the BEST idea! My daughter is 21 now, but when she was three she had a favorite doll, like most girls. I had a photographer take some photos of her and her doll and those are her all-time favorites because they brought back wonderful memories of playing with her doll. I'm sure that someday your daughters are going to look at that layout and laugh as they remember their toys. A brilliant idea!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
