Thanksgiving Morning

My first two page layout in forever, I think. I sure had a lot to say on this layout :) While I knew I wanted to use this photo with my layout, I didn't plan for this layout to be so 'wordy' actually. I just kept on typing whatever I can remember, then I realized my story had taken almost a full page. That was when I started thinking about design.

I'm digging the large photo. I could've used any photo of the bands or the many giant balloons we saw, but I chose this photo of my boots. I love this photo for many reasons - I don't wear boots in Singapore, our weather is way too hot for boots and on that very morning, this was my spot until the parade ended. I didn't budge even though it was so cold my belly button was shivering. Haha.

I turned the 'morning' digital stamp from AM/PM Digital into a cut file then I layered some papers, added my title and stitched them all onto the photo.

The true story and nothing but the truth came from For The love Of Words brush pack. I spared nothing (LOL!) - from the little people hammering nails onto my skull from the inside to when I was absolutely clueless on where to go to watch the parade. :)

It was a good Thanksgiving though. I had my girls with me, we were in New York City, we caught the parade and we even went to a playground at Central Park after that. It was a mighty fine Thanksgiving.
