One of the perks of being part of an international community of scrapbookers is being exposed to various customs and celebrations that are not your own... always good to broaden your mind, right?
Last week for example was Thanksgiving in the USA... not something we celebrate over here, but i really like the thought of dedicating one day in the year to think about all the blessings and good in your life!
So i celebrated in my own way, and made this one... having this beautiful boy in my life is one thing i'm so blessed with, among other things!!!
I used a very appropriate set of papers and goodies... the Give Thanks '12 collection!
And i mixed and matched it with papers from another favorite, the Jubilee kit, square frames from the Insta.luv kit and some word art from the Be You kit... all Karla Dudley (Yep, can you tell that i'm a CT member, wink?!)
Cut the title on my Cameo, and added a bit of glitter and shine!
Cute homemade brad (Give Thanks word art), a Silhouette leaf shape and some beads to give it all a finished look!
And there you have it... some ponderings about my happy reading son captured on a 12x12 canvas!
I was lucky to be able to capture it, because Stach doesn't want to have a camera sticking upon his nose all the time... and i cannot blame him, he's reaching that age that his privacy is getting more and more important, and you don't want your mum putting your everyday, cool or cutsie stuff all over the www, right?!)
On another creative note... it's almost December folks! Can you believe it? I thought i had plenty of time to prepare myself for another challenging round of December Daily, but somehow i totally didn't get the opportinity (... and Karla kept me busy with so many new goodies in her store :)!
But i got my plain binder ready for some re-decorating, i bought extra ink for my printer and i put a load of various papers and such that i can run through my printer on my wishlist for Sinterklaas! And, most important... i got this uber cute Cherished Holiday hybrid kit to work with!
So i guess it will turn out perfect after all!!!
