Happy Thanksgiving Day – layout for Creative Embellishments

Wow! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by! Seems like the school year just started for my kids and now it’s already the end of November! For those of you in the US, Happy Thanksgiving! πŸ˜€ I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a layout to share using their FABULOUS laser cut chipboard title piece, along with their wood and chipboard feathers. I was also inspired by sketch challenge #19 at Scrap Friends. Here’s what I came up with:

Thankful Fall is Here – layout for SWAT drill #20

***GIVEAWAY op at the end of this post***

It’s the 3rd Saturday of the month, so there’s a new challenge up at SWAT. Drill #20 is a sketch with the added challenge of incorporating feathers on your project. For my take on the sketch, I decided to go with a photo of my son, Matthew, when he was 4 (he’s 7 now). He had made a cute costume in preschool out of a paper bag and looked darling showing off his little Indian costume, so I snapped a couple of quick pics. πŸ˜€

I ended up rotating the sketch because I also wanted to incorporate the chipboard tree and wood 3×4 card by Creative Embellishments on this page. The leaves and feathers are also by CE…aren’t they great?!! Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time to alter many of them in order to get my page uploaded in time for the deadline. I KNEW I really really wanted to use CE products on my page and they arrived just in the nick of time. πŸ˜€ Here’s what I came up with for the challenge:
