Thanksgiving is almost here!!!

As I get older, and the importance of gifts at Christmas lessens, I think I appreciate Thanksgiving more and more. The stress of gift-giving does not exist, but the family aspect becomes the focus...and I think I look forward to Thanksgiving more than Christmas now.

One thing I love about Thanksgiving is getting together with the extended family. When all of us are present, there are 25 of us. One great way to use the scrapbooking kits is to create festive name tags for that  looooooong table of family members. I took Telah's challenge for place cards and I love my finished product.  Check out the name tags I created using the November Sussie kit for this year's meal (love that Bella Blvd paper)!!!

I handcut leaves from the patterned paper and adhered them with dimensional pop-dots. The matching Bella Blvd alpha stickers went perfectly with the paper. I used the October Afternoon blog as inspiration for the name tags...pretty simple but I love the way they turned out!!!


  1. These turned out really cute. I need to get working on these.
