Thanksgiving has over the years become
a time for many things to many people.
It's a time for food ... family ... food ... football ... did I mention food?
Mmmm, just thinking about that now makes my tummy growl.
For me Thanksgiving has really become a time for reflection.
And I find the need to make others reflect with me :)
It think it's important that sometimes we sit back and
take stock of the past year and remember things to be grateful for.
Today I'd like to share with you a tradition my family has done in the
reflection catagory for the past 6 years and will continue to do until the day I die.
I say "until the day I die" because I'm pretty sure by the rolling eyes I get
from the family as I bring this tradition out each year
that once I die, this tradition will die with me :)
Hey, to know me is to know my freakiness ... and to love me anyways :)
Now, let's get to it.
Each year I come up with some type of theme that is
autumn-y or Thanksgiving-y (are those really words?).
I turn that theme into a type of scrapbook page.
Then, after our big yummy dinner, those who are blessed enough
to eat with me that year :) can write on the page what they are thankful for.
This year I will actually use my Silhouette to create the page ... BUT ...
All of the pages below were done PRE-Silhouette!!
I simply found a coloring page I liked either online or in a coloring book.
Then I put the coloring page a lightboard and traced
the design onto various types of scrapbook paper.
I cut the pieces parts out with scissors, glued the pieces parts together,
and voila! Page done!
Get out your pen,
ignore the rolling eyes from your family,
and a new tradition is born :)
