Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi All,

Hope you are all happy and ready for Thanksgiving as it is quickly approaching!! This year is already flying by; I can't believe it. Though I haven't done any grocery shopping yet for Thursday, which we are partially hosting, I DO have my placeholders completed. :)

This was quite the undertaking, and something I had wanted to do in years past, but I never got around to it. This year, Peachy Keen's Color Challenge inspired me to take action! I am including these little guys in the following challenges:

Little Scrap Pieces: "Fun Friday Use an Animal"
My Craft Spot Challenge #76 Thanksgiving
Peachy Keen Stamps Color Challenge #44


  • Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up
  • Cricut Create a Critter
  • Nestabilities for the placeholder background
  • Sizzix Embossing Folders
  • eyelets in the leaf
  • My Creative Time "Everyday Bingo and Crossword"
  • wine corks
  • Peachy Keen Stamps: PKSC - 07 July 2012 for my pilgrim boy, and Native American boy and girl
  • Peachy Keen Princess Faces for my cute pilgrim girl
  • Peachy Keen - Create a Critter Faces for my turkey
  • PK 490 Everyday Face Assortment for my leaf
  • Various ribbon
  • Hemp
In case you are wondering about the wine cork placeholders, they were SUPER easy to make - all you have to do is save your wine corks, and saw a slit into the top of the cork(s) using a sharp knife - just be careful! :)

I hope all of you have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
