Pigeon Forge Thanksgiving

Have you ever been siting in your craft room and just "NEED" to scrapbook?  I mean, you have to put stuff on a layout and create or you will go insane?  Well, that was me yesterday.  I was working on stuff for my theatre and just got the overwhelming urge to scrapbook.  So, I searched through my pictures and found a bunch from a trip we took Thanksgiving of 2006 to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  We actually went to Knoxville to have Thanksgiving with my sister, her son & daughter-in-law and they took us to Pigeon Forge.  What a cute little tourist village!  They had the quaintest shops (candy, clothing, gifts, etc) and food and entertainment.  Very nice little side trip.  My daughter (who as 10 at the time) had fun.  I'm sure she doesn't remember much other than the candy store and the Christmas store but I remember she had fun.  She bought her ballet teacher a ballet ornament for her Christmas tree and couldn't wait to get it home to her.

I have an easy time hording Scraptastic Kits but not so easy of a time using them because if I use them, I won't have them.  However, I really enjoyed using this kit.  It was the February 2016 Sunday Morning kit.  The background was an exclusive Scraptastic paper Food/Family/Story - Fools Rush In paper.  I did hate using it cause the other side was this AMAZING heart design but oh well, it is done now.  The layering paper behind the photos is a paper from the kit Crate Paper HELLO LOVELY - With You.  Lovely pink with white hearts.  Most everything else was from the kit.  I think the "This was" and "the best" were an extra purchase from the This Life Noted kit from that month but I'm not sure.

I made the fringe butterfly and added it to the kit since it went so well.  I had actually forgotten about making it until I opened the kit.  The polka dot bag contained the embellishments from the kit.  The bags are so cute I love using them on layouts.  The doilies were from my stash.  The title "Family" is Thickers YOU & ME and the word "Vacation" was Thickers SPRINKLES.  I did my journalling on a black chalkboard label with a white jelly roll pen.
