This is my response to Melissa/Fiery Redhead's embellishment challenge for SHCG. We were all given puzzle pieces, pp, journaling panel, 2 silver brads, heart clip and ribbon, and told to use 90% of those on a LO. I used everything but the heart clip and 2 puzzle pieces, covering the other 2 puzzle pieces w/ pp and using them as photo corners. This page is about the 1st part of Thanksgiving Day '04; we gathered at my childhood home in TX. Before the big feast, we ran errands then my sister and I watched DH, my brother-in-law, 2 of my nephews and my niece play football. Journaling panel pulls out from behind the group action shot to say "Thanksgiving Day '04 in TX - Woke up early to make Dept. Store Urban Myth cookies. Greg and I went to Walmart w/ the kids - they were soo good and well-behaved. Greg defied store policy by video taping. Then Sally and I watched Jon, Greg and the kids play football. Beautiful day, wonderful company and a great time in from of our (Sally's and my) childhood home, before the big meal." (The meal will be covered in another pg). The ribbon on the left is conceptually suggesting the lacing on a football. Also, the base paper is textured with a paisley pattern that is vaguely reminiscent of a football shape. (Note the scan cuts off the right side a bit and the stitching cut into one of the spiral punches). This was so fun to do! TFL :)
