Happy Thanksgiving Eve

I just got back from running some last-minute holiday errands. And, I'm proud to announce...I am DONE Christmas shopping. Yay! I wanted to get the last few things on my list before the madness that is Black Friday. I do have a couple of gifts to finish making. But, at least the shopping part is over with.

And, I finally got some scrapping done. 2 LO's completed, and 2 more that I'm still working on. One came out so well that I am saving it for a contest. So, I can't share that with you. But, here's another one. It's not my favorite ever. But, oh well, what can you do?



My favorite part is the journaling. It's lyrics from The Nightmare Before Christmas song "What's This?":



Hopefully, I can come back with more to share tomorrow. At least I'll be able to show you the cute little owlie ornaments that I am making for the Red Velvet Art ornament swap. They're coming out so cute! And, they gave me a chance to play with the new polka dotted felt from the Creative Cafe at my LSS.

We have no huge plans for Thanksgiving. Usually, I cook a big dinner, and we invite all of the single soldiers at Bryan's work. But, obviously, due to the deployment, we won't be doing that this year. Instead, I will finally have the chance to relax and enjoy someone else's cooking. I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving!
