a Season of Thanks

Way back in the beginning of November I mentioned that I would create these scrapbook pages that would document our month of thankfulness. Well here it is... it's was a lot more time consuming to create than I first had thought. I hand cut each pocket and stamped everything. I attached the pages to a 16x24 piece of wall art canvas. I use canvas a lot around the house for various projects. It's adds a unique dimension and charm I think to Scrapbooking on the Walls! Each day has 3 tags in the pocket so we can all write on them. For now the kids are keeping a record on a sheet of paper on the fridge. If all goes according to plan and there isn't much rebelling they'll be written on these tags by Thanksgiving!

I was technically finished within 3 days of my "assignment"! I am ashamed to say it's taken me 16 days to take a picture of it and post it online.

So today, November 19, 2011, I am thankful for scrapbooking.

Creating releases stress, I'm the wife of a Marine and a mom to 3 middle schoolers... yep I've got stress!

So if you'll excuse me I've got to switch the laundry (only 6 loads to do today!), pop the tab on an ice cold Coke and get to creating... I've got to make some Christmas cards!
