First Thanksgiving LO

I was thinking I wasn't going to have any more time to scrap this week (packing up tonight to leave town for a few days in the morning), but I decided to throw this together around 10:00 last night. Don't know what got into me; I'm normally getting ready for bed then. Anyway, it came together really quickly for me, which is funny because I am usually a very slow scrapbooker and even when I am mentally planning my pages before I start they still usually take forever. I had no plan whatsoever, and I just started slapping stuff on the page and funny enough I like it just as much (or maybe even more!) than some of my pages that ended up taking forever. TFL!

This is PERFECTION Katie! You know, it's something about those layouts that just come together real quick that always turn out the best ya know? I absolutely love your design, colors, journaling :), but the title just rocks.

haha, you and I were late night scrapbookers together! I started my layout after 10pm too!

I'm actually a little disappointed that I didn't journal about that thought because I meant to. This is one of the first times that I have journaled right on my LO and I ran out of room (even though I practiced on a piece of scrap paper first!) - OOPS! So I'm telling myself that it's good enough to just say it in the title. Makes me feel better about it! Lol

Katie, it's perfect!!!! And I totally KWYM about a page coming together without a plan and just being one that you love. That's the best! It's a great layout, and I just love how you did the title. Smile

Are you going out of town on a fun trip?

Just going to stay with my parents and visit some of DH's family. Smile Should be fun - Evan just loves playing with his cousins and it's been a while since we've seen them. Lately he's been pretending they are here playing with him, so we thought maybe we should take the poor kid to go see them for real! Lol
