jbs mercantile: thanksgiving mini-album

i got my thanksgiving mini-album hostess gift completed with time to spare!  hooray!  my plan with this is to take a photo of all the family units present at our thanksgiving gathering, print a group pic, and have someone from the group journal a gratitude on the facing page.  i think it will work, and i know the hostess will love this reminder of thanksgiving 2013.

i used the november jbs mercantile mini-album kit almost exclusively for this project.  i did add in a few pieces of fancy pants ephemera from the artisan add-on (sold out) and ledger paper and cream cardstock from my stash.

the interior pages all follow this same format.  the back is splatted with tim holtz broken china and mustard seed distress ink.  two 5x5 inch pieces of patterned paper are layered on next.  then on the left is a sheet of 4.5x4.5 inch ledger paper and on the right a piece of 4.5x4.5 inch cream cardstock.  the photo you see here was just thrown on for the photo.  i'll be taking all new photos on thanksgiving day to fill the pages.

it's so fun to have a gift all ready for giving!

there are still a few of the kits available at jbs mercantile, and don't forget about our awesome november membership special!
