This is the "Thanksgiving 2011 So Thankful" book. This one is for my sister and I made another one for my cousin. Amanda, my sister, had thanksgiving with just her family this year and I intended to get this to her...but did I? No, of course I didn't! The one for my cousin, Jenni, was so she could remember her first Thanksgiving as a married woman. Maybe I can get it to her by next Thanksgiving...for her 2nd holiday as a married woman. :)
On the cover and the books I did a lot of stitching with my sewing machine. I have never stitched on paper before so it was a pretty cool experiment. The velcro tabs used to close the cover of the book were sown by hand. Totally worth it!
Now for the inside:
I made this front cover using free download digital scrapbook kits from Two Peas in a Bucket digital store. (www.twopeasinabucket.com)
These are the pages I made using the Creativity Prompt "So Thankful" journaling cards. They turned out pretty nice!
Here are the pockets I made for the So Thankful book for my co-workers. Everyone said they liked them. I hope they used them. I put a lot of effort into these little suckers! :)
Maybe for Christmas I will do something similar. So, thanks Creativity Prompt for your inspiration and I encourage all of you to checkout the website.
