Lets Talk Turkey Blog Hop Day 2

tHello, and WELCOME to the the second day of "Let's TALK TURKEY" Blog Hop!! We're so excited that you could join us for this WONDERFUL two-day hop!! Please be sure to visit BOTH days for maximum ideas, maximum FUN, and maximum chances to WIN!! Our hostess, Amy at, has some SUPER prizes for a few hoppers, so be sure to check out all of those details on her blog!!

If you have hopped here from
Ashley, then you have arrived at the perfect spot in the Turkey Coop!! If you are just popping in to visit, please take a trip back to Amy's Blog ( to start at the beginning -- we've got a bunch of Gobble-Gobble-Goodness, you won't want to miss out on any of the FUN!!

For my project I decided to take the card that I made yesterday and incorporate it into a scrapbook layout.  This way I can write down my private memories for this last Thanksgiving my mother cooked.   I often do this with layouts that are very personal in nature but still add a great element to the page.
I matted the photo's with paper from the Recollections collection called "Spice Market" and then embossed under the photo's using the embossing folders that come in skinny strips.  This one says "With love"
I stamped in versa mark ink and embossed in clear embossing powder the pine cones and bough from Inkadinkaclings that I purchased at AC Moore.

I hope you like it and don't forget to leave a comment, become a follower,  so you can be entered to win my blog candy which is posted on Day 1's hop.

Thank you again for visiting, for the next stop in the Turkey Coop, please hop to Colleen
