Challenge #36: Give Thanks

In honor of the upcoming thanksgiving holidays...pull out last years fall papers, embellishments and ribbons and scrap it. It can be about what you are thankful for or just a silly ole topic using up the papers.

Queen Aimee's:

last years 7 gypsies

Thought I'd share some wreaths that i've made over the last few years. All the paper elements on them are scraps. The first one uses little bit and pieces that i've tried to use on other layouts, but ended up ditching them and collecting them in a baby food jar, like buttons, flowers, etc. The first wreath is also made from scratch with a $3 clearance grape vine wreath from Michael's and some clearance items from Walmart's seasonal aisle last year (they've been sitting in a rubbermaid bin awaiting my holiday spirit).

The second is made from the garland strands you can also find at Michael's. I tied the two ends together, made each little card, tied them off with eyelets and ribbon, added the letters to spell 'Thankful', the tied off with a bow to hand.

Very nice work. I need to get busy with my project for this challenge!

I want to thank Liz for the nice comment on my layout for Challenge #35 but I forgot to post it on my blog. I am "Thankful" that she pointed that out to me.:)
I'll definately remember to post my projects on my own Blog too!(he he he).
