So the day is finally here and I really hope you are enjoying this blog hop as much as I am. You must be coming from Madison's blog at http://www.funkycards.blogspot.com/. Thank you Jess for being such a wonderful hostess and BTW, if any of you need to go back to the beginning of the hop, click here.
There are so many things I have to be grateful for but, the thing that I am most grateful for are my children. They have been a true blessing since the day I found out I was pregnant for the first time. Now they are young adults and guess what ??? ... LOL... they keep me young, happy and soooooooo active!!! .... more than I wish to. My children are the heart of my house, in which there is always laughter and activity 24/7. The best thing is that children are God's gift that keeps on giving; now I not only have 5 children but, I also have my precious grandson. It is for this reason, that a picture of my children, grandson and, my four legged son is the focal point of my special Thanksgiving project.
- Cartridges used: Create A Critter for the house and pumpkins.
- Cut a house shape from chipboard. Cut a window in the front part of the house that is a little bit smaller than the size of the picture.
- Go around the borders of your picture with Terrifically Tacky Tape.
- Remove the red cover of the tape to expose the sticky part. Place a piece of acetate over the picture.Cut around picture, removing excess acetate.
- On the back part of the "window" glue a piece of ribbon or trimming to form a "curtain". Go around the window frame (back part of the "house" with Terrifically Tacky Tape and remove the red plastic.
- Place window over picture, making sure picture is centered. Cover chipboard with cardstock.
- **Glue front of house to the back of the house.
Make scarecrows out of chipboard and cover with cardstock. Glue raffia to dolls head, arms and legs. Dress up.
Make window frame, scallop border and fence out of cardstock covered chipboard.
- Cut pumpkins and leaves. Color and ink.
- Add fence, scarecrows, leaves and pumpkins using dimensional dots and tap
Make the circles for the banner and glue to the twine with glue dots. Glue the ends of the banner twine to the house. Glue the scallop border to the house, catching in the ends of the banner.
- The banner is written in Spanish. In English it means: "LET'S BE THANKFUL".
