Made With Love Thanksgiving Layout

Fall, is not quite here, but with the start of school we all know that cooler weather, colorful foliage and fresh from the oven pies are on their way! The layout I have to share today was created as a design team assignment for SRM Stickers and our focus was to be Thanksgiving. I created this as a tribute to the homemade pumpkin and pecan pies that my Mom makes every year for Thanksgiving. Besides the tradition of her making these two pies, pretty much everyone in the family will have a slice of each pie on the same plate when it's time for dessert!

TIP | Use SRM Stickers to create titles and to customize your patterned paper
To create my layout title, I added one of the SRM Stickers to a strip of mostly solid patterned paper, trimmed around it and then attached it to my layout.  
The fun part with the clear stickers however, was using them to create a word collage on my patterned paper.  I used a combination of SRM Thanksgiving stickers and placed them in random places, but still in a horizontal position, on the patterned paper. By doing this, I was able to customize the already beautiful patterned paper.

TIP | Hidden journaling using Kraft bags
I included copies of my Mom's recipes on my layout. My Mom scanned her recipes and then sent them to me. I printed them on white cardstock, attached them to a die cut tag and placed them inside one of the 5 x 7.5" SRM Stickers Kraft Bags. The bag was then used as a mat for my photo of the pies and I embellished it with some BoBunny embellishments and twine from The Twinery.

Did you notice that I placed one recipe on one side and the other on the other side? I think this is such a fun way to preserve memories and recipes. What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving traditions, memories or recipes?
