Grateful Journal and Thanksgiving Activity Booklet

Welcome crafty friends, today I am bringing you a fun activity booklet and journaling cards for my young dinner guest on Thanksgiving. These are place cards as well. Each child will have these on their plate to show them where they will be seated. The journaling cards can be saved and placed in a scrap book for them and the activity book keeps them busy during the times the adults are visiting with other adults.

The activity book is a 5 X 7 with things to color, Tic Tac Toe, word scramble , word search, Maze, I covered the activity book with a 12 X 12  Earth Wind and Fire sheet cut down to 71/2 X 5 1/2"Tied with a green ribbon, on the front of the activity book I cut down a 12 X 12 paper to a 81/2" X 11 paper to run through the printer Cannon TS5000 and copied the body of the turkey on to the patterned paper, I fussy cut the turkey out. coloring his feet, beak and comb with distress markers. The turkeys feathers are made from a feathers die using scraps from the Earth Wind and Fire paper line. 

The journal pocket was created using the  paper line Honeycomb.  I cut out a large leaf added two circles to the center of the leaf, the larger circle is edged with Milk Chocolate Powerful chalking ink. one circle is a photo of the child. Which was printed from the Cannon Selphy 1200, The photo was then punched out with round punch. The large leaf was then attached to a belly band to keep the journal closed. Inside the pocket are 30 journaling cards for the children to fill out.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Quick Quotes - Earth Wind Fire 
                                                     Honeycomb 101

Today I am so thankful

Thanks for joining me today,  I took the contents of the Q Club and this what I have created.

2 single 12 X 12 layouts, 12  Christmas cards and 1 mini albums.   The Christmas cards I used the quotes to create the front of the cards. Three of the cards have duplicate quotes, they are designed somewhat different.

Layout 1 (on the left) I used the circles as photo mats, added Happy Beyond Measure is backed with white card store then mated on the patterned paper. I used the light weight chipboard backed by the co-ordinating patterned paper.
