Gratitude Thanksgiving Book

I can finally post this! Tuesday was "Scrapstashers" class again and, as always, we are given a list of things to bring from our "stash" and we make a mystery project. Since it is a mystery, I can't post the project until after the Thursday class.

Here is the darling "I Am Thankful For..." Thanksgiving book we made. We took a small carvable pumpkin - about 6" - and cut it in half and sprayed with various Maya Road color mists. These are hollow, so we covered both open sides with chipboard and cardstock. Five pages were added to make up the book. Then we decorated the top.

In the picture below you can see the open book with the pages. I've decorated them a bit but will also add photos and journaling. I'd like to get the entire family to journal either what Thanksgiving means to them or what they are thankful for.




Here's a closeup of a few pages. I used the Bo Bunny fall line of papers, Beautiful Life, which are gorgeous. I love this little book - it will do double duty as both decor and a book of gratitude.
