Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop!!
Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop! Most of us would love to travel but are having staycations this year. What better way to travel but through a blog hop. This hop was inspired by our host Shawnee's journey across the United States as she traveled with her family to their new home. The United States is truly beautiful with many wonderful places to visit and see.

Now on to my state and my project....
I was born and raised, and have lived most of my life in the state of Massachusetts.
I chose to do a layout portraying The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth Plantation. Plymouth is a HUGE tourist attraction for our state. People come from ALL over to see the MayflowerII and Plymouth Rock. Living here, and so close to Plymouth, you start to take for granted all the historical aspects of where you live, it's no big deal to me anymore. I can go to Plymouth everyday! LOL But, it really is an amazing place with a lot of history! I used the Giving Thanks file from Scraptastical Kreations for the Pilgrim, Tee-pee, Indian and table. I used pics that I founf on the net and wrote up a little summary of how Thanksgiving originally came to be. Hope you find it informative and fun! :)
NOW.... for my CANDY!!!! I am giving ONE lucky winner the Giving Thanks file from Scraptastical Kreations! The file also includes a girl Pilgrim, turkey and a cornocopia! To be eligible, all you have to do is:
1. Become a follower of my blog and leave some love!
