So for day 2 I decided to do another scrapbook page.  Going with the Theme that I never have pictures of Thanksgiving I decided I would do one of all the great cooking!  I thought I would take some pictures of preparing for dinner. 
I used 4 cartridges for this scrapbook page.  Forever Young, From my Kitchen, Doodle Charms, and Gypsy font.  I used my gypsy, black, white, patterened, pink, & brown cardstock.  My black pen, white galaxy marker, and adheisive and pop dots. 
The "mom" was cut from Forever young at 5".  The Apron was cut from From my Kitchen at 2 1/2". This one I had to cut a couple of times to get the size to match up with the "mom".  The stove was cut from From My Kitchen at 2 1/2" (also cut a few times for sizing).  The turkey was cut from Doodle Charms at 1" and it too had to be cut a couple of times to get the right sizing.  "Its Turkey Time" was cut from Gypsy wanderings and welded together at about 3".  After I layered the Mom's clothes and apron I put pop dots on her.  I also used pop dots on the turkey to make it stand out a bit.

I really love the Forever Young cartridge, you can do so much with it!  I hope you like my page!

Don't forget 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.

Hope you are getting inspired with new ideas along the way!  Thanks for stopping by! ~Christina~

I love your layout! I am glad you told the sizes of the Mom and apron. My Mom wears aprons when she cooks. You have given me some great ideals for photos and scrap pages. Thank You! Edwina Brown edwinabrown@comcast.net
