Happy Thanksgiving!

I finished my Fall mini album. Here are the photos of my completed cover and interior pages. Now all I need is to add some of the photos I take tomorrow and some journaling and it's complete. As I mentioned in my previous post, I used Cocoa Daisy's November kit, Autumn Glow. It's delish!








I hope you have lots to be thankful for on this holiday! I know I do. Today, I am most thankful for my step dad, who is still being treated for Lymphoma. I am thankful that on Monday his doctor gave him some good news. Despite some bumps in the road and a recent hospital stay, he is responding very well to his treatments. He will continue chemo through December, but after that we hope he will be in remission.

Also, Richard's grandma is doing well after her open-heart surgery. She's so amazing. At 82, she's incredibly strong. In fact, the other night while we visited her, she chased down a roach and threw a sandal at it and knocked it dead - all for me! She knows how terrified I am of roaches! LOL! So sweet. Of course, we all told her she couldn't bend down and run after a roach just days after surgery. I guess her instinct took over and she forgot all about her pain.

Tomorrow, we will be spending the afternoon with my family at my aunt's house to celebrate Thanksgiving (turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet yams, deviled eggs, pie, etc.) and then we will head over to my in-laws' house in the evening for another dinner. Lots of quality time with family, food, fun, more food, family and food. Did I mention all the food? Yikes!

I will be baking two pumpkin pies, one for each house, and bringing the honey ham. Yum!

May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

P.S. Don't forget! Next week, I will be giving away a RAK so be sure to visit my blog starting Monday!

xoxo,
Vanessa

This album cover looks so similar to the one I am doing for my sister! However, I am having a hard time closing mine...is there a trick to doing each page to make it close better? Maybe I tried to match the size of the paper too well, and should have cut the paper smaller? Any tips would help!
