Fall Blog Hop Day 1

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Welcome to day 1 of our Fabulous Fall Blog Hop. I will be giving away some Christmas Blog Candy. The only requirements are that you 1. Become a Follower and 2. Leave a comment.

 My family is having a huge Thanksgiving reunion and I was asked to make some things. The reunion is mainly going to honor my grandmother Iris. She is such a wonderful grandmother. She has 8 children, 27 grandchildren, and a great number of great grandchildren. Just recently she also became a great great grandmother. So in order for her to cherish the memories that we will create, I decided to make her a Thanksgiving scrapbook. I bought an 8x8 scrapbook and have made several pages for the book. I know that she will love it. Here is part 1 of the Thanksgiving scrapbook.

Enjoy!

What a wonderful gift for your Grandmother! Your layouts are great. How did you get the wood-like texture on those photo mats? I can't tell from the pictures if they are Cricut cuts or if the paper is embossed, but which ever it is, I love it! I found your blog through Oh My Crafts. I'm now a follower and am looking forward to seeing the projects on the blog hop.
