Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that all my friends who celebrate Thanksgiving had a great one! We've had a busy few days here, and now i'm recuperating lol. I started cooking Wednesday night and finished around the time that everyone was arriving Thursday afternoon. I had a very Pioneer Woman Thanksgiving, lol. For those who don't know her blog, you should totally check it out! Her recipes have never disappointed me, so I went with her Turkey brine and her method of roasting turkey. Oh, and her amazing chocolate pie, too ;-)

Yesterday was a fun day! I did some Black Friday shopping in the morning, and then I went to a crop from 4-midnight with next-door Lisa and down-the-street Heather. We were the only croppers there, too, so we had the place to ourselves - even better, hehea! I got 4 layouts done, so I was happy with that. Of course, my AMM kit arrived today - where was the postman yesterday when I needed him?? Hopefully i'll have time to dig into it soon because it is gooorgeous! You can get one here if you love it as much as I do - lots of yummy Jenni Bowlin, Graphic 45, Making Memories and Prima!
Here is the Fancy Pants layout I made the other day with the new Vintage Valentine line. I can't get enough of this line! I'm also very into tulle lately - I did a double layer on this layout. The journaling on this talks about the conversation that Chloe and I had that I talked about here.
This is one of the layouts I did at the crop yesterday, and here is some tulle showing up again lol. At least I used a different color this time ;-) I used lots of gorgeous Pink Paislee on here, and I also used this textured crinkly paper I picked up ages ago. These photos of Chloe were taken last summer, and I just love how sweet and innocent she looks.
Well, friends, it's bath time for the kiddies. Hope you all are having a great weekend!!

Wow, I would never be able to create something as delightful as the second layout if I was at a crop. I'd be busy chatting and eating...LOL.

Wonderful projects all around and what I have seen from the Vintage Valentine line it will become one of my faves for sure. You have showcased is brilliantly.

And a big YEEHAW to PW - I *heart* her
