Happy Thanksgiving!

I always look forward to Thanksgiving!!! This is the day that I wear sweat pants and get ready to eat everything that is filled with butter and sugar. The sheer amount of carbs consumed on this day is fantastical!!! And the best part, I feel absolutely no guilt!!! Because this is the one day that I know for sure that I will spend time with my family. This is the day that all family differences, squabbles and fueds are laid down (temporarilly but most times for good), and we reflect on the blessings that've been bestowed upon us.

I rejoice daily in the life I've been given, and it's been a long road to get where I am today. My faith stayed strong throughout all of the highs and lows along my life path and I can say today that my life is wonderful. When I want to think that it sucks, I just reflect and I get myself back on the straight and narrow!

I was asked over at Let's Scrap to be their featured Guest Designer for this week of giving Thanks, and here is my layout.


I have to get back into the kitchen and finish up the dishes my sister asked me to bring over for our feast(we alternate Thanksgiving and this year she's it)!

So remember to give tremendous thanks for all of your blessings and then stick that napkin into your collar and dig in!!!

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

It sounds like your Thanksgiving was beautiful, Robin - thanks for sharing such beautiful thoughts with us. It was extremely great this year for us to be with my aunt and cousins - we really had the best time. I ate contentedly and had fried turkey for the first time. What a blessing. Robin, you really ROCK the scrap book world with your fantastic layouts - I love to see your work; it is so inspiring! I'm hoping to get better in that arena. ;P
