SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY

Hi all!! Got back in late last night and will share stuff from my cruise tomorrow but today I am sharing another page I made using the Coconut Scrapshop October kit!! Isn't this paper yummy? I am loving it!! This is a layout again based on Thanksgiving 2006 - whoohoo, almost finished with that holiday, teehee!! My husband fries our turkey every year. At first, I was like, ewwww....how unhealthy, but in actuality it is fried in peanut oil, and does not absorb hardly any of the oil, but is full of flavor and is the best turkey I have ever tasted! I won't eat turkey any other way but this now - lol! So, these pics show the steps to getting that turkey on the table. And, I used my leaves Big Shot Die, stamped the leaves with my Sanded background stamp, and added those up top to give the feel of fall! Lots of buttons on this one too, Jen gave us lots to play with and since I love buttons, I was thrilled!! If you want your own kit, get on over to the Coconut Scrapshop and see if she still has some, she might have one or two *wink* Have a fabulous weekend!
