Something uplifting ...

I have always loved this - I think it is the same one I posted on my personal blog last year.  Enjoy it ladies!! It will put a smile on your face for sure!! And no, I get no kickbacks from Scrapbook.com, lol.  They don't even supply me with their gift certificates for the blog ... it is simply uplifting, especially if you love to scrap like we do!

1 december 2011 prompt challenge

Wow - the 1st of December - Christmas is coming ....

Our challenge this time around is to scrap a treasured Thanksgiving memory for you, DO NOT USE THE COLOUR ORANGE anywhere in the layout. Ha ha!! If you do not celebrate Thanksgiving – how about scrapping what you are thankful for, or why not scrap a family reunion or gathering????

Here are some contributions from some members of our lovely design team - and no, that is not orange in my layout - it is a salmony pink and yellow from Sassafrass!:

and me :)
