Gratitude Changes Everything.

My next set of layouts are the Thanksgiving layouts I had planned on making with the Heidi Grace Floral Paper from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit set 1.  I had planned on making a one page layout but just did not like how the pictures were lining up especially on the 8 1/2 x 11 pages so I turning it into a double page spread.

This is the first of double pages.  Jenni Bowlins kits had a few of the tags which I am using a printable set for on this layout.  Her kit also had glassine bags and I do not have any in my stash so I made my own.  I used a clear plastic grocery bag to replace the glassine bags but I made mini envelopes out of mine.  I really like the way that turned out.  I cut down the "Gratitude Changes Everything" and rounded the corners then put it into the mini envelope.

A hand cut banner, doily, pre-made flower and the tickets finish off my page.

Thanks for stopping by.
