Counting our Blessings

Hope everyone has some time set a side this week to give thanks for all the special people in our lives. Unfortunately, Billy and I will be working on Thanksgiving, but that won't stop me for giving thanks for my wonderful family, they truly are a blessing.

Jamie (my daughter) was going to come to Vegas for Thanksgiving, she lives in Reno,but decided not to this year. Kaylene (my other daughter) will be spending Thanksgiving with her inlaws in Utah. But the bright side is that we will all be together for a few days at Christmas.

Scrappy Frogs challenge until Thanksgiving was to incorporate Thanksgiving Dinner on your project. The wonderful memories came flowing back about our Thanksgiving a few years ago in Utah. Jamie and my two grandsons surprised my mother and I by coming to visit. We had no idea that they were coming so it made that year very special. My Aunt and her husband also joined up for the celebration. It was a no brainer it was absolutely necessary for me to take pictures and add them to my scrapbook.

The two page layout is very simple, and the turkey was made using my cutting system from Creative Memories. The picture on the righthand corner is everyone seating down for dinner and the main focal point is a plate full of huge rolls, they were humongous and we couldn't wait to get our hands on them. My Aunt Elayne usually does all the cookin', she has even published a cookbook, but my sister and I took on the challenge this year.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week. Leave me a comment love to hear from my blog family.
