Thanksgiving Inspired Page

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I was inspired to pull out some photos of Thanksgivings past that I had yet to get scrapped. When I saw that Boy Meets Girl is running a challenge for the first part of the month to create a page with a fall theme and a male subject, I knew I should scrap a photo from Santiago's first Thanksgiving. To make the page I used sketch #53 from the My Scraps & More Sketches blog.


And this is what it inspired me to create...
I love that at that age Santiago always had this same surprised look on his face when I took photos of him. 

The background paper of this page is Basic Grey Clippings and the scraps are Fancy Pants Road Show (sitting on my desk after the last two layouts I made), Sassafras Lass My Dearest (also sitting on my desk from an altered autumn banner I made for a client), Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and Crate Paper The Pier. The ephemera is Echo Park Fall Fever and Crate Paper Lemon Grass. Isn't it great to use up scraps that haven't even been put away yet?
