    Default Thanksgiving Weekend

    Thought I'd do a page almost entirely of pictures. And I used up some of my stickers for the title, and some embellishments that have been screaming to be used. I used a white marker to outline the center picture - how does it look to you?

    It's raining here, so I had to take the picture with the flash. The only way to do that is to take it at an angle. If I get good light tomorrow, I might try to take another straight on with no flash. But I think you can see everything fine here.

    In the pictures are my parents & brother, in addition to the 6 of us. We always visit my parents for Thanksgiving.

    I like the effect on the middle photo, but I had to look twice to see if it was part of the photo (because of the white bench).

    I love how you did the title and that it's almost entirely photos, that's awesome!

    BTW - you're so pretty!

    I think it looks great! I really like the effect the white marker had on the middle photo. Very cool

    What a great way to add so many photos! I love that you used the white marker. Can I ask who makes it? Also I love how you added the date circles

    The white border is perfect Gwen! Really makes that picture stand out. I know I've done this before, but I've never done it on just one....I'm going to copy this idea.
    And wow, you look so much like your mother. ETA, so pretty! These are great photos.

    LOVE it! I too want to get a white marker like that. It looks great on that pic. You did a super job on this and I agree, you and your mom are gorgeous!

    thanks!

    I don't think I look like Mom at all, I tend to favor my dad. Can you believe Mom will be 60 this year? She doesn't look it, does she?

    Tia - I got the pen at Jo-Anns, it's a brand called PenTouch. I don't love it, as it doesn't seem to work consistently, but I guess it gets the job done.
