      The line-up for November includes:

      I used Robyn's Fetish Thanksgiving dinner digi. You can find it here I colored two of the image. I colored the digis with copics. Copics used are B05, B29. B30-blues, Y000-potatos, C1, C3, C5, C7-platter, C1, C3-spoon, E000, E00, E31, E33, E37-rolls, E33, E37, E31, E00, E41, E43-turkey, E000, E00, E31-pie.

      I used Cricut cartridge Thanksgiving. Row 1 and 2 button 8 - corn at 2.08", rows 3 and 4 button 3 at 4"- pilgrim, rows 3 and 4 button 5 at 4" - Indian, row 5 buttons 1, 4,and 5 at - 1.47" sentiments
      ( Gather Together, Happy Thanksgiving, and Count Your Blessings).

      The border is from Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges row 1 button 3 at 1.13". I cut out 2 of it.

      The photo mats are 4" x 6". The journaling lines are drawn using a ruler with Brown Gelly roll Pen.Yes the yellow mat has a space at the top of the journaling. It is so I can put the date there.

      The papers are all by Recollections.

      The layouts are 12" x 12".
