Gather Together with Project Life

Last week my father-in-law was cutting up firewood.  I noticed he was cutting a branch that fell recently and I ran out to stop him.  I had an idea and needed his tools :)
 
I'm in love with this Seasonal Snapshot 2015 set from Stampin' Up! Not only does it cover the seasons in an adorable way, this font is so stinkin' awesome! Seriously, if you've read my blog the last few months, you're probably sick of me saying it!

 
This is our first thanksgiving with family in a long time.  We are very grateful to be around our loved ones.  Unfortunately, while I was making these my husband text me and said he is now working Thanksgiving.  I guess we will have to bring him leftovers! (I'll still attach his tag)


  The only stamp not used from Seasonal Snapshot is the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge.  The leaves, sweater stitching, sentiment - all from this awesome set.  Its for more than just your memory keeping!




And since I was already stamping away, I thought I'd make a few things for my Thanksgiving pages. 

 
This is a 6x4 card from the card kit.  I added the Gorgeous Grunge splatter, washi tape and ribbon.

 
This was an extra tag that I cut up to make a label.  Can't wait to take the family picture to go in it!

 
And last but not least, I added this circle embellisment to the existing 3x4 plaid card.  I really wanted to add the same details from the name cards to my PL pages.

 
So there you have it.  You have a week left to make some of your own.
 
Just don't go kill a live tree. Find a dead branch :) and while you're at it, make sure you head on over to suochallenges.com to see some more fall inspiration! I'm entering my placecards in this week's challenge. 
 
Blessings,
Holly
