My Sheri Crafts Challenge # 73 Be Thankful

* For Celebration Giveaway Click Here*


Hey Diva's, Happy Saturday! Today marks the day for a New Challenge over at My Sheri Crafts. This week's challenge is "Be Thankful"  we are asked to make a project/card with a Thank You or Thanksgiving Theme. I am Thankful for so many things; Life, GOD, Family, and all of you guys just to name a few, but I am also Thankful that I got a scrapbook LO done! Yayyyy * This is where you say "It's About Time Letillia" lol I know, I know. Lord knows I am the Queen of putting things off patiently wating, and one of those things has been getting a scrapbook page done.

I really wanted to do one just because I felt bad for not doing one in so long but also because I had bought a kit and I needed to put it to work so I did!!

I saw the 3 Birds "Best of Fall" papercrafting kit on HSN ( 2 of my favorite companies) and I said to self "Let's try that out and see how it works" so I ordered it. When it first came in the mail, I honestly will say that I didn't think I was going to like it and I asked the Hubster, "Why did I buy this?" But something said keep it and I did, it politely sat in the closet for about a month or so and then I decided to use it. Once I started playing around w/ it  I found out that I actually liked it.
The line that is going down the middle is because I actually took 4 cards that came with the set cut them down the middle and used one side of them ( it had another print on the other half). You won't be able to see it once I put my picture on top of it.
This LO took me literally about 15 mins to put together that includes figuring out what pieces I wanted to use, cutting the cards and gluing it down!
Recipe:
3 Birds "Best of Fall" Kit
Adhesive: I-Rock, Xyron
Bling: I-Rock

I now know that I will be ordering some more kits because pretty much all the work is done for me and all I have to do is put it together! And let's be honest I'm a Mother of 5 ( 6 counting the Dog) and time is something unheard of. I need to make things quick fast and in a hurry, once the kiddos grow up then I will have time- Right?

Do any of you Diva's know of any good companies w/ Great Scrapbooking Kits? I would love to try them out, let me know!! Well I've held you long enough, Have a Great Saturday Diva's and don't forget to join us on this challenge @ My Sheri Crafts! I will see you there Be Blessed Guys!

Cute layout Letillia! I love how clean it looks. I agree with Sandy on how you placed the "autumn" Although as windy as it is here this weekend, my first thought was "It looks like they are flying in the wind, too!"
