October Pals Hop: Give Thanks



















Welcome to the October PALS HOP!  This month, we're featuring Thanks/Thanksgiving themed projects for your inspiration! I have many things to be thankful about and many people whom I need to thank.  I will begin thanking God for the opportunity to share with you this blog once again.

If you've hopped over from Stephanie's blog, , I'm stop number 9 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you hopped in!  I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for paper crafted creations from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!  Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP at the bottom of this posting and you'll be back on track!

 My first project is an MDS digital scrapbook page about my latest blessing this year.  My new grandson Francis Armando. He was born in Okinawa, Japan and I have not yet met him in person.  Thank God for Skype, MSN, and Facebook!  It's like I knew him already!
My second project is a Thank you card with fall colors.  For this and for all the remaining paper projects I used the beautiful Autumn Spice Specialty Designer paper from the Holiday Mini.  I love all the papers, in fact they are cardstock, very appropriate for 3D projects.
I ventured myself to do this little box from the Candy Wrapper Bigz Die from the Holiday Mini. I was not sure if I was folding it like I should but I really liked how it turned out.  Next time I will fold it differently and see what comes out.
For this card I used the same Designer paper.  I matched it with the Day of Gratitude clear stamp set. This set is really beautiful and versatile.  Use it with change ink colors and see how different it can look.

Hop along for more inspiring ideas from Angela, stop number 10 on the Thanks/Thanksgiving PALS HOP!  Thanks for "hopping" by!
