Let's Talk Turkey Blog Hop -- DAY TWO & Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge: Gobble Wobble 12x24 Layout :)

 Welcome to DAY TWO of the "Let's Talk Turkey" Blog Hop and.....  The Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge!!

I'm super pumped that you're back for DAY TWO to enjoy some more TURKEY-FIED creations by some friends and me!!  If you missed DAY ONE of the hop, be sure to CLICK HERE for maximum ideas, maximum FUN, and maximum chances to WIN!! I have some SUPER prizes for a few hoppers, so be sure to check out all of those details below!!

The HOP STARTS HERE, so you have arrived at the perfect spot in the Turkey Coop!! If you are just popping in to visit, be sure to continue through the hop when you've finished here -- we've got so much Gobble-Gobble-Goodness that you'll definitely want to check out!! :)

For my project today I have created.....
A two-page (12x24) layout for our Annual Thanksgiving Day "Gobble Wobble 5k!!  The-Boy-Child has participated in this FUN event the longest...  Then he convinced The-Girl-Child to run with him too...  And last year we all participated in the RAIN and COLD!!  This year we're hoping for a warm and sunny morning!!  It's always fun to see the costumes that some people will wear for this event (there's a prize for the best Turkey Costume!!)....
The title for the page was cut from the Robotz Cricut Cartrige (font and shadow features) at 2" from Tangerine Core-dinations paper and Grenadine Bazzille Paper.  The background paper is from the Reminisce Harvest Paper Line.  Isn't that turkey paper so much FUN???
I used the new We R Memory Keepers "Sew Ribbon" tool to punch the ribbon slots on the corner fold and for the strips behind the title...  I'm just LOVIN' this tool!!  It makes lacing ribbon or paper strips super quick and easy!! :)  Tucked in the pocket of the layout you'll see one of the "Thankful" tags that I made for each of us to jot down what we are thankful for on the morning of the run...  I stamped the "Thankful" with the Fall-O-Ween Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs...  Isn't that a neat way to remember what was important that morning?
My photo mats on the left 12x12 layout are adhered on only three sides so that I could place a "Thankful" journal tag behind each picture...  This was such a fun layout to create, and I'm really looking forward to adding our photos after Thursday!!  Here's hoping the rain stays away -- That'll be the FIRST thing I add to MY thankful tag!! :)
I hope you've enjoyed my layout today...  And I hope you'll continue along to the rest of the Turkey Hop!! :)  There's a whole bunch of Turkey FUN for you to see!! :)  Before I send you on your way, please remember that TODAY is the start of a BRAND NEW 2-week challenge over at Getting Cricky!!  All you need to do is create a card, layout, or project that shows us what YOU are thankful for (in case I didn't mention, I'm thankful to be able to participate in the "Gobble Wobble" with my kiddos this year!!  I'm really looking forward to it!!)...  Be sure to CLICK HERE for all the details AND to link up your "Thankful" project!! :)

I have Blog Candy for a few lucky winners this weekend!!  I will be sending ONE person who comments on all of Day One's participants a pack of paper and embellishments...  I will also send ONE person who comments on all of Day Two's participants a pack of paper and embellishments...  However, I will draw ONE WINNER for the GRAND PRIZE!!  The GRAND PRIZE WINNER will receive one of the FABULOUS new "Sew Ribbon" Tools, a paper pack, an embellishment pack, and a surprise pack of goodies (total value of this pack is approx. $50)!!  Be sure to comment on each of yesterday's AND today's posts so that you're eligible to WIN!! :)

You shine with some of the best inspiration out there. Have a great run and be careful. Know what you mean about the's been extremely windy and rainy here for what seems like days on end.

Rhonda Emery said...

love the layout and wishing you a happy thanksgiving

Edwina said...

Wow! I thought the paper was fabric on the folded down piece. Then I read it was paper. I love the papers you used! Love the ribbon! It goes so well on the page. I love that you are writting down on Thanksgiving what you are most thankful for on that day. It is a good way to start and end the day.Where do you get the sew ribbon tool at? That sounds really nice. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown edwinabrownatcomcastdotnet
