Give Thanks Blog Hop

'Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding. 
Alice Walker

Welcome to the Give Thanks Blog Hop! You should have arrived from (LISA) or if you are lost start at the beginning (ALICIA). As we approach the holiday season, I think it is appropriate we should reflect on things for which we can be thankful. We can be grateful for the little things and we should be grateful for the big things. We should take the time to give thanks for all the persons and moments that make our lives so special.
Sooooo, we would like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.
Theresa is giving away a $20 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one lucky winner AND
take 10% off any order placed through her (not available on website) by November 30th. 
Email her at scrapsbygracie AT with your order.

That's it! It really is easy. 
Of course, we would love it if you became a follower too.
Comment buttons can be found at the bottom of the post (on most of the blogs).
Now on with the hop!

Ok, I'm glad I followed Lisa, because I'm gonna add some humor! LOL  I really wanted to create a Thanksgiving card, but I couldn't find my Thanksgiving stamps anywhere in my stash. So since I couldn't find my stamps, you're stuck with this layout!  The paper is from Colorbok 12 x 12 Designer Paper Holiday Extravanganza. The stickers are from my stash, I threw away the packaging. All 3 photo mats are from Jolee's Boutique Fall 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I'm going to take pictures at my family gathering and will add them to this layout. I'll add journaling somewhere, too. I'm sure I'll take more than 3 so I'll probably do another layout and will have found my stamps by then! Jason is going with me to meet my dad's side of the family so I'm excited! 😊 I always look forward to being with my dad's side of the family on Thanksgiving since we don't see each other that often during the year. So, I'm thankful to be able to be with them as often as I can! I'll post an updated version of this layout once I take and have the pictures printed so be sure to become a follower and come back to see it completed! 😉

Up next is (CONNIE) and I'm sure she has something amazing to share with us!
Here is the entire line up in case you get lost:
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Thanksgiving! 🍲

Having a layout made ahead of time is a great idea, but I would never be that organized. Nice colors.
