Thanksgiving & Thanksgiving Eve Layouts

In 2013, we had moved into my grandparents house and were waiting for our house to sell.  We had to leave our house "staged" so that potential buyers could come to see it.  Since we didn't have out dining room set up at the new house, we were unable to host Thanksgiving, and we went to my father in law's house.

It was the first time we were able to go out for Thanksgiving Eve, which is the biggest drinking night of the year!  We went to our local bar and had a great time with friends.

My 29th Birthday Layout

We went out for Chinese on my 29th Birthday.  My mom, brother, sister-in-law, and husband were there.  My dad was at work.  

My husband even shared his sushi with me, which is why we took a goofy picture of me taking a piece off his plate.  LOL

After dinner, we rushed home to "batten down the hatches."  Hurricane Sandy hit Philadelphia that night.

Wicked Layout

Each year for Christmas, I give my mom tickets to a show.  For Christmas 2012, I got tickets to see Wicked.  We went to the Academy of Music in Philadelphia to see the show in June of 2013.

What a great show!  And a GREAT way to use some of my Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper!

Thanksgiving 2012 Layout

I saw something similar to this layout a couple years ago on a blog.  Unfortunately, I do not know where I saw it.  I saved a picture of the layout into my idea folder (before Pinterest existed!) and I finally got around to recreating it.  If anyone knows who made the original, please let me know and I will give proper credit.

This layout is or our thanksgiving dinner in 2012.  I host Thanksgiving each year and we invite my family as well as my husband's family.  We usually have 10-12 people.  Along with the journaling on the bottom right, I listed out our menu.

A Christening Card Using Buggies & Booties

I make a lot of baby cards, since so many of my family and friends have had babies in the last few years.  I made this christening card for my cousin's baby.  Her name is Perry.

I absolutely love all things vintage.  So when I saw the Stampin' Up set Buggies & Booties on ebay, I HAD to have it!  I have used it to make many baby & christening cards.  LOVE IT!

Here's the card & envelope:
