I just wanted to share a super cute banner that I created to use at a feast that we had for the Mentoring program that I co-run at my school and after I used it for our feast, I sent it to my grandmother so that she could have it to use at our family dinner, for hopefully many more years! :)
This sentiment and image are from the K.Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween set
This handsome guy was cut from the Create A Critter cart.
Here is the banner hung above my fireplace.The base, layers, and letters were all cut from Birthday Bash, I love that cart when making banners!

And the other side.
I also wanted to share a centerpiece that I created for the feast that we had at school. Basically, as each guest arrived they had to take one of the leaf sticks and write something that they were thankful for. Then the centerpiece came together as each person added thier leaf. Everybody really enjoyed this part of the feast and it was great to see the beautiful decoration that we created as a group!
I used my Gypsy to make the cards and then attached them to bamboo skewers. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo to ink around the edges of each leaf. The basket was purchased at Michaels for 40% off!
This is a close up of the tag that I added to the front. The sentiments and image are from K. Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings and Winged Things Sets
Here is a view of the full basket, this was pre-feast so I could transport it to school.
Well that's all I have for today. I'm going to be entering these into the current Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge- Give Thanks! Be sure to check out Kristal's awesome stamp sets! They are AMAZING! Best of all they are made right here in the USA and $1 from each set sold is donated to a charitable cause! How awesome is that! Head on over to her store, K. Andrew Designs, to see exactly what I'm talking about. You will be glad that you did! :)
I am so thankful for each of my followers who take time out of their day to stop by to see what I have been up to! Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to stop by later this week to see what other crafty things I've got up my sleeves! I'm off to start working on some Christmas decorations and cards! I can't believe I'm actually getting started early, I am definitely in the spirit already! :)
Until Next Time....
