Thanksgiving Album...

I am finally feeling better this morning. Better enough to wrestle with this demonized scanner we own. Sometimes, it scans so quickly and nicely... other times, it is like a trial of my patience as I wait to see if it will actually put the scanned image in the album. ANyhow, here is my Thanksgiving mini-book... proudly brought to you by the makers of Nyquil and Kleenex... two companies I have become rather close to this week... I used chipboard sheets, (the thinner kind of chipboard,) and did a little "snapshot" of four different times during the day of what I was Thankful for right then... all the pics are from the day too... Micah was NOT real into that first early morning shot. I was all "Honey, this is about capturing our life, right NOW, as we live it, and I want to record how thankful I am that I got to wake up to you!" He was wondering why the thankfulness couldn't be taken in a shot with combed hair... It is hole punched and I actually used the little circular picture clips to hold it all together. I got book clips for it, but they were too heavy. I was hesitating about more ribbon on the cover, or writing above the "thankful" something like "a time to be..." and I had planned on writing 2006 on it too... clearly the nyquil has affected my decision making abilities too. What would you do???
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!!

  1. Oh, Jude! This is great! I want those stamps!! Are they all 7Gypsies?? I would put 2006 in the middle of that circular stamp on the cover. I love your handwriting, by the way. I just wish I could read better what it says. For some reason, I can't blow it up. Don't get mad, but Micah is a hottie! I love that name. I wanted to name one of my sons Micah, but I wasn't the only one in the decision making process, unfortunately. Hope you're feeling better. Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving!
