Things I'm Thankful for Blog Hop



Welcome hope you are having a wonderful time hopping with us and celebrating the things we are thankful for in our lives.  I am thankful for my wonderful family, who always stick by each other no matter what the circumstances.

  This hop is being hosted by the ever gracious Lisa at Honeybearzdesigns.  If you have arrived here from Lynda's blog  you are going in the right direction.  If you need to start at the beginning go back to Lisa's blog at Honeybearz.

This is a two day hop, so for my first project I made a Thanksgiving mini album.  Each year our family gathers for Thanksgiving.  Either my daughter or myself make a book and pass it around to each family member to record what they are grateful for during the year.  This year I made this little mini album, with room for pictures and some journaling.  Each family member will be given a page, a square or a tag to journal on, everything, along with family pictures, will be placed in the book on Thanksgiving evening (and then we run out the door for Black Friday LOL)






I actually picked up the little album for only $1 at the Scrapbook Expo this year.   I used some older paper I had in my scrap box to finish it off.

And because I am thankful for all my friendly followers, I have blog candy to thank you with.  All you need to do is comment on both days of the hop - I will have two different projects-leave a way for me to contact you.  No need to be a follower, but I would be so ever grateful if you would!
Some stickers and embellies from Life's little occasions



 Thank you for stopping by now on to the next great project from Nicolette!


Happy Scrapping!!

Liz I love the album. What a great idea and a great way to get the whole family involved. Love the idea of the album but not the idea of running out the door for Black Friday....I will wait till after can't deal with all the people and the madness.
