This week's challenge is a great challenge for me because I always have leftover things from projects . . . especially sentiments.  I am always mixing and "matching" mine instead of using what comes together or I end up not wanting to use what I have and make another.  I think most of us do that one time or the other, right?  Okay, you don't have to admit it. :)

Anyway, when I saw what the theme was for this challenge and then this turkey image from Bugaboo, I decided I was gong to do a layout this time round.  I mean, I have so many Fall and Thanksgiving pictures from throughout the years that still need scrapped. And who wouldn't want this cute little turkey with a pumpkin on one of their layouts?  I used an old title from "Fall" paper collection by Little Yellow Bicycle as my stash item.  I know it says "Happy Autumn" but when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of Fall or Autumn.   Here's how my layout turned out:


Copics used:
Pumkin - YR14, YR18
Turkey feathers - YRY23, YR25, R46, R59
Turkey body - E13, E15
Beak - Y15,Y18
Grass - YG11, YG13, YG17
Halo - BG10, BG000, BG0000

Other supplies -
Stickles - mahogany, orange, and yellow
H2O in Black China
Walnut Stain Distress Ink

All-in-all I am pretty happy with the way this turned out . . . though I do feel I need to add a little more of something?  Oh, right the photos!  lol   (NOTE: I didn't add photos to the final layout before taking its picture because there is a person or two who would prefer not to have their photo out on the World Wide Web vis my blog.)

And one more thing before I go, a friend of mine and fellow CIO DT member (Sharon) is having a super, ubber, fabulous giveaway over at her blog - "A Piece of My Heart"- for her "300 Follower Giveaway".  So head on over there to enter (there's 7 different ways to enter and you can enter some of them as many times as you want but only once a day).  And tell her I sent you. :)  And GOOD LUCK!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
