My Thankful 30 {2015} Days 26-30

At long last, here are my final pages for my Thankful mini. It turned out to be quite chunky and I even had to replace the rings with larger ones.

Day 26 was Thanksgiving and so I dug through my stamps to find a sentiment that summed up our evening.

For day 27, I went off prompt for my photo and inspiration for all of the circles came from chatting with Brandi while we were each working projects.

I don't know about you, but when they include the cut-apart papers in varying size rectangles, I very rarely use them. It's especially harder when they're scaled down for a 6x6 paper pad. I cut this one little square out and paired it with some die cuts for day 28.

On day 29, I worked on putting together a little surprise happy mail and so that inspired using tags behind my photo. In case you'd like to make your own paper fortune cookies, I used these directions here with circles that were 3-3/8" in diameter.

And for day 30, I decided to document the tradition of my Thankful album. I usually have piles of projects on my desk and sometimes items get shuffled around. One of my mini flair had fallen out of another pile and it's like it was meant to be found right at that moment and was a perfect fit to my page.

If you'd like to flip through my album in it's entirety, you can find the images in my gallery here and all of my previous blog posts can be found here. Thanks so much for your thoughtful words and allowing me to ramble on about this project! I think I'm going to need a mini album break after this and December Daily. :)

THANKYOU...they are not only super cute - but lovely crisp images & such great sentiments on them..... really LOVE them. Glad you had that December sale!!!
