Harvesting Memories Blog Hop

Welcome to the Harvesting Memories Blog Hop where you will get to see various projects related to fall.  Have you been shopping today? I decided to stay home this Black Friday. Whether you are taking a  break from shopping or at home resting, thank you for taking time to visit this blog hop hosted by Lisa of Honeybearz Designs. You should have come from Michelle - If not, please start with Lisa -

For this hop I created a two page layout of my youngest's Thanksgiving Feast when she was in Pre-K, 3 years ago.

Cricut Cartridges used:
Makin' the Grade - title
Celebrate with Flourish - hats and sentiment

CTMH Stamp Set - Thankgiving Day (I've had this at least 3 years) stamped with CTMH chocolate ink and colored with good ole Crayola colored pencils and crayons

All the other supplies came from my stash.

I have BLOG CANDY!  To be eligible to receive the following clear stamps, you must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment with a way to contact you.  The lucky recipient will be chosen by and I will post the name Thursday, November 29.

Thank you for stopping by today. Here is the full line-up in case you get lost.  Please leave comments along your way.  Your next stop is the talented Beth.
