I hope that everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends and enjoyed some yummy food. What was your favorite food? Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite holiday because it reminds me of God's goodness and faithfulness. It also reminds me that it is not only during this time of year that I need to grateful. This Thanksgiving was an extra special one that will be treasured and remembered forever. God gave my family and I as well as some of our close friends the opportunity to honor and say "thank you" to some special people. To honor them I made two scrapbooks and included letters from family and friends inside. Here is the cover and the back. I laminated them. (Sorry for the glare.)
Here are the pages.
I left the last two pages empty for them to include pictures of the event.
It was indeed a blessing to get to honor and meet them. In combination with honoring two special people we also had a surprise b-day party for my son the same evening. When I was thinking of a party favor to make for that would represent both events I decided to emboss and die cut a stamp that says "God is good." I adhered them to chocolate covered oreos that are wrapped in beautiful foil.
This is what I put on the back.
These are the party favors for the kids that attended the party.
Here are the decorations for the party.
Now that Thanksgiving is over it is time to start up on crafting for Christmas. I hope that all of you will have a fun time prepping for Christmas and will have time to enjoy the true meaning of the season despite all the craziness. Thanks for stopping by!
