Happy Thanksgiving

Woo hoo!  I'm doing the happy dance right now - they're done!  I finished the rest of my 8 x 8 scrapbook swaps tonight!  YAY!  And six days early, to boot!  My order arrived today with the paper I needed to finish my Halloween pages that I shared with you over the weekend, and along with it was the paper for my final swap, which I'm sharing with you tonight.  This weekend I designed the layout for my Thanksgiving swap pages and made my six swaps.  It was kinda fun - my DH and I went over to his dad's house and as we sat by the pool on Monday afternoon, I stamped and assembled my pages.  All I needed was the Autumn Spice specialty paper I had ordered from the Holiday Mini to finish the left panel, so after finishing up the two Halloween swaps tonight, I finished up the Thanksgiving swaps.  I really like how this one turned out.  Now I can package up my swaps and get them mailed out in the next day or two, ahead of the September 15 postmark deadline.  Lookie:


Ingredients
Stamp Sets:  Autumn Splendor, Woodgrain, Thankful For
Card Stock:  More Mustard, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cajun Craze
Inks:  Early Espresso, VersaMark
Accessories:  Spritzer Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  I'll have something new to share with a post that I have scheduled to publish on Monday morning as I've got a busy weekend coming up.  Last spring I won an observing session for two with the Mount Wilson Observatory Association, and I chose this weekend to redeem my prize.  My DH and I are heading up the mountain this weekend for some observing time on their 60-inch telescope.  I'm looking forward to it - several years ago we were invited to do the same with the 60-inch at Mount Palomar, and it was a great evening.  Until next time...
