Let's Talk Turkey Blog Hop, Day 1

Hello, and WELCOME to the the "Let's TALK TURKEY" Blog Hop!!  We're so excited that you could join us for this WONDERFUL two-day hop!!  Please be sure to visit BOTH days for maximum ideas, maximum FUN, and maximum chances to WIN!!  Our hostess, Amy at, has some SUPER prizes for a few hoppers, so be sure to check out all of those details on her blog!!

If you have hopped here from Linda's blog, then you have arrived at the perfect spot in the Turkey Coop!!  If you are just popping in to visit, please take a trip back to Amy's Blog ( to start at the beginning -- we've got a bunch of Gobble-Gobble-Goodness, you won't want to miss out on any of the FUN!!

For my project I have created a one page layout.  I have used the turkey from the Giving Thanks file and a title from the Thanksgiving Title set, and the Sophisticated Scallops file to create the journal tags, all are from Scraptastical Kreations.  I am going to add pics of my kids, or at least some of them stuffing their faces this year at Thanksgiving! I really like the colors I chose for this one.... not your everyday traditional Thanksgiving colors, but traditional enough. :)

NOW, for my blog candy! I am offering to one lucky hopper a grab "bag" of goodies from my stash! All you have to do to be eligible, is become a follower of my blog and leave me some love saying you are!  If you want an extra entry, I would love for you to "Like" my FB page, CBC Scrapbooking and leave me a comment saying you are from the hop! I will announce my winner on Monday! Thanks for hopping and good luck! :)

Thank you again for visiting, for the next stop in the Turkey Coop, please hop to Rhonda's blog!

  7. Love this project! I love the way that you used something I would have never thought of in this layout... flowers?! AMAZING and PERFECT! This TURKEY IS AMAZING TOO!! I WANT IT!

  9. Wow! I would have never thought to use bright colors especially flowers for a Thanksgiving LO but you sure did a wonderful job. Love the colors, the strips match the flowers. I am not sure if that is a train car or one of those cages you use to see when a circus comes to town but it is a fantastic ideal.. I liked your FB and I am a follower.

  10. This is an awesome LO. I love all the colors and patterns. Cute turkey. Nice being in the hop with you.
