Blessed so much more than I deserve

Well, I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving!  I recently had a party for a few of my dear scrapbooking friends and it was wonderful.  The theme I chose for this year's party was "Blessed Beyond Measure".  I feel so blessed everyday, and just wanted to share that sentiment with my friends.  

The picture above is just a little piece of wall art I made for the season.  It all started with a frame I bought from a garage sale for $1.  Yep, one dollar.  Then I just covered the art in the middle with a piece of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper from K and Company, from the very old Alleghany Plum collection that I have been hoarding.   The sentiment added on top was something I "scraplifted" and recreated on my computer on photoshop.  It just said it so much better than I could.  "Thank you God for blessing me so much more than I deserve. "

This second picture is another seasonal piece I made from a second frame from a garage sale.  Covered the background with some very bright orange embossed wrapping paper, then just used more K and Company papers to make the panels.  Again, the sentiment was something I created using photoshop on my computer

A dear friend even helped me create a layout for each of the ladies to create that helped celebrate the season too...

Of course the house was decorated for Thanksgiving and fall, but we celebrated Christmas as well by making some very pretty Tussie Mussies.  The ladies really outdid themselves with all their creative skills and every one was so unique and so beautiful And it was just too much fun watching them "playing" at making their own.  Here's just a few of the ladies with their gorgeous creations!  

I want to thank all these dear friends for their kindness and generosity.  We had a truly wonderful time!  And the food, oh my gosh golly, the food that night was outstanding.  So I hope each and every one of you and your families have a very wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.  And I just pray you all have as much fun as we did!  I am so looking forward to our family celebration now!  

Happy Thanksgiving to you all
Hugs, Molly
