My family has a tradition of getting together for Christmas one year and Thanksgiving the next.  This way we can all be together and still have a holiday to spend with our inlaw families too.  This year is a Thanksgiving gathering with my family.  However, we don't just do Thanksgiving - we do a weekend long Thanksmas.  We have a great Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday and then we spend the weekend getting a tree and celebrating a family Christmas.

A couple of weeks ago I won this adorable Thanksgiving kit by Adorable Pixels:

I knew it would be perfect for our fun Thanksmas celebrations, but since I couldn't wait for this year, I decided to scrap a previous year with it.  So I dug out pictures from 2008, and using a fun template by Little Green Frog Designs created a fun double page spread.  Check it out:

Bringing Back the Old Kits

I've got two layouts to share with you today.

First up I'm loving this layout I created about our trip to see Thomas the train at the railway this summer.  I used All Aboard by Kristin Cronin-Barrow.  Sweet Shoppe Designs having an UNDEAD goodies celebration for Halloween and bringing back some favorite retired kits, and when I saw I knew that All Aboard was perfect for these photos.

And here is the kit in case you are interested.

And second, I found an old kit on my hard drive by Shawna Clingerman and Micheline Martin that I could use to scrap some pictures of our trip to the small local airport.  And I used the free template from my facebook page to scrap them.

I'm now blogging around town!

I so excited to share with you all that I'm now going to be blogging for Kristin Cronin-Barrow.  I'm thrilled beyond belief to be a part of her stunning team.  And I wrote my first blog post for her the other day.

It was based around this fun fall picture I took of my kiddos:

And I share an amazing collab kit that you can pick up for less than $5.
