What I Am Thankful For blog hop day 1

Welcome to the "What I Am Thankful For" Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Nov. 4 at 8:00 am through Nov. 5 at 11:00 pm (central time).

If you just happened to come to this blog, you are at the beginning with Lisa Peters http://handmadewithlove-lisa.blogspot.com/.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we ...have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back both days to see great projects.

For my day 1 project I wanted to do a simple scrapbook page.  I never seem to get a picture of my whole family at Thanksgiving.  I am usually busy cooking.  I decided if I make a scrapbook page then I would have to at least get a couple of pictures.  I am very Thankful for my family!
I used The Desginers Calendar, and Gypsy wanderings cricut cartridges.  Navy, striped, white, brown, black and red scrapbooking paper. I used my gypsy, white galaxy marker, red stickles, and star dust stickles. 


 I cut the "Family" from gypsy wanderings cartridge at 3 1/2", the "Give Thanks" from the  Designer's Calendar at 4", and the Pilgrim hat from Designer's Calendar at 3 1/2".  I cut 2 frames from the striped paper.  Stickled the G and E, and the T and S with the xmas red stickles.  I also stickled the buckle on the hat with the stardust stickles. 


To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog, leave a comment and then become a follower of every participant in this hop. You also MUST visit Lisa's blog and leave a comment on Lisa's blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and her facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrapping-with-Lisa/130882060268842.   Please let Lisa know if you don't do facebook and She won't count that against you for the blog candy. Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be. It will be a grab bag full of goodies.

Thanks for taking a look at my project!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see my other project, and all of the other great projects! ~Christina~
