Authentique ThankFul paper collection meets Prima mix media!

Okay Guys I need to know, How many of you have ever seen or made a Thanksgiving mixed media art journal/mini album? My answer: NEVER until now!

I received my newest DT project and I was super excited because earlier in the day I caught a glimpse of some of the goodies and I was hoping that the new G45 Nutcracker paper line was mine to play with and naturally the wheels started turning as I began to envision what I was going to do with this new material. So the time came to take my box home and there was no G45 Nutcraker paper to be found instead I held in my hand the new Prima 6x6 mix media album and the newest Authentique Thanksgiving paper line. Now don't get me wrong I loved what I was given it just took me by surprise because I couldn't begin to imagine how I would combine them. As a matter of fact earlier that week I was on the Authentique website thinking to myself how fun it would be to play with that exact paper line and just last month I actually almost purchased the new Prima album so its very interesting how this all worked out.

I love details but sometimes I find that one of my biggest challenges is knowing when to "leave it alone and walk away!".  Working on this project allowed me to practice this concept and I was amazed by how fast and easy it was for me to create so many pages in so little time and be done with my project.  I am Thankful that these DT projects keep me on my toes creatively and before I go I want to challenge my readers to try this at home! Make something mix media/Thanksgiving and send me a link or post a photo of what you come up with because I would love to see it.  Here are a few of my favorite pages.
