Thanksgiving FUN!

I am using up some stash of one of my favorite fall lines from last year....Basic Grey Persimmon!  I had a fun little story to share about what my kids said they were "thankful" for on Thanksgiving, and these photos were right after I had video taped them being silly saying they were thankful for their big bellies and noses....not the sentimental gratitude I was hoping for, but a fun moment to remember nonetheless!

I went with black and white photos so that I could use the busy prints and the bold colors of the papers without interference from colors in the photos.  I simply layered some papers behind each photo and then tucked a few elements in with them like gold leaves and transparencies.

Then I added a few chipboard pieces on top and some ink splatters and stitching.  And I also decided to do my journaling in white pen since i wanted the focus to be on the photos and embellies.
