CLICK HERE ( to start at the beginning with Lynda's blog!! This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (you'll find the entire line-up below my post)!!
For the hop today, I've created .......
This "THANKS" scrapbook will be holding several pictures from our upcoming Thanksgiving Dinner in Nov. Since we'll be having about 25 people, I will have to be picky choosing which photos will go in. The scrapbook is from K & Company and the embellishments are a collection of odds & ends I have in my craft room.

This last page below is the actual invitation I made this year and of course I had to block out my address & telephone #. I also made a matching envelope!
