HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY, ONE AND ALL!  I hope you have a blessed day with your loved ones making yet another wonderful memory.

I did my portion of cooking yesterday and deposited my goodies to my daughter's refrigerator for overnight.  We will be eating with her family and a few friends, and will begin the day there with breakfast of belgian waffles, bacon and coffee as we watch the Macy's Day parade which has been a long-standing tradition in our house, young or old.  One year I was the proud mom of a performer in that parade, a memory I shall always hold very dear.   As the day progresses, our main meal menu includes our oven roasted 20-lb. turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry chutney, glazed carrots, broccoli casserole, baked pineapple, mashed potatoes, pumpkin quick bread, cornbread muffins,  iced tea, Moscato wine, apple cake, and coconut cream pie.  That should more than take care of anybody's hunger and desires.  We'll eat early afternoon and watch football and the Westminister Dog Show the rest of the day.  I'm sure the men will swarm the leftovers like hawks all day, too.

I'm auto-posting this so you'll have a holiday goodie in case you find time to stop by during your time off.

I'm taking part in the November Quick Page Game over at Digi Scrap Station in the forum, and we got to work with a cute kit called "GOBBLE" by Kathy's Scraps.  I designed my QP in both the 8" and 12" sizes at 300 dpi, png format.  You can collect all the other contestants' 8" QPs just by stopping by the DSS forum thread about the Nov. QP Game.  All participants will have a direct download link in their forum posting for you.  If may need to register in the forum first if you are not already so you'll be able to see the topics.  Here are the previews of the kit we all worked from  . . .

and here is my Quick Page for you . . .

Your second FREEBIE today is my own word art, Thankful #3 & #4_Divided Word Art.  Again, these are png files, basic black, at 300 dpi, easily resized larger or smaller, easily recolored, or apply styles to them, clip papers to them, etc.  I think you can read the message in the middle on the previews below.   Hope you can use these . . .

I hope to be back on Friday with #5 & #6 like the above, only humorous; then Saturday with #7 which is more spiritual.  That will complete my current run of holiday word art for now.  I have another QP, a template, and a printable card ready for you the first of December.  So, do drop by often, and please let me know you were here by leaving some love in the comment sections.

I have one chore to accomplish on Black Friday morning at 9 a.m., and then my weekend should be nothing but peace.  Maybe I can scrap up some photos!  Chat soon!
