11/29/13 - "Thankful"

Good Morning!
Happy Friday/After Thanksgiving Day!
Yesterday was a very good day!
Slept in.
Spent lots of quality time w/ my hubby and kids.
Ate lots of yummy food I didn't have to cook because David did all the cooking.
And the best part I didn't have to leave the comfort of my home!
Best Thanksgiving in a long time!
I was also able to scrap a little.
I made the following layout:
Journaling: "Joseph - 18 and Madison - 11 October 20th, '13"
I used the following sketch from "Stuck?!":
They paired up w/ "Scrap Our Stash" this month and "Scrap Our Stash" added the following twist:  Must include any type of wood - veneers, stamps, paper, etc.
I used a wood heart and wood grain washi tape (and a lot of my stash!!).
