Thanksgiving.. A time to be Thankful For.. so very much

Sadly, we do not celebrate Thanksgiving down here in Australia, it really is a holiday I wish we would adopt. Hey, if Halloween can find its way down here, why can’t Thanksgiving, lol!

It is a wonderful time to stop and give thought to all that we are thankful for in our lives. That doesn’t mean we should only be thankful on this one day, but to be able to set aside some time devoted to just being thankful… I could go for that, often.

Thankfully, I try to never take anything for granted. I have a loving and supportive husband, two totally awesome kids, a furbaby I adore and amazing and caring friends. I enjoy a career that I love, in a country that is so spectacular and have, through this wonderful craft of digital scrapbooking, met some of the most wonderful people from all over the world. Some, unfortuanley, only in cyberspace but some, I have been lucky enough to meet in real life.

Celebrating all that I am thankful for, I am releasing my Thankful For… set of products in my GingerScraps store this week. (it is already available in my Digichick store right here). Both stores will have ALL Thankful For… products on sale at 30% off all weekend long (the bundle will be available at 50% off), until midnight EST Monday November 21. You can find my Thankful For… set of products right here.

Thankful For..Free with purchase

When you purchase the Thankful For.. Bundle you will receive a set of 10 glitter papers for FREE. These are not available anywhere else. The Thankful For.. Bundle is available in both stores at 50% OFF all weekend long.

What happens in Vegas… well, you know ..

… stays in Vegas

We all know that famous saying.. ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas..‘ the good thing though, is that wonderful things can happen in Vegas too.

We had a wonderful three days in Vegas at the end of 2014 and, even though we are not gamblers, we loved seeing the strip, that it looked EXACTLY like it did in the movies and that, at times, we could imagine ourselves in a number of different countries whilst never leaving the strip!

Aces High is the perfect kit to show off all your wonderful memories of Vegas, or any city like her.

The Aces High Kit contains 11 12×12, 300dpi papers and 50 coordinating elements. Aces High is available at 30% off all weekend long, ending midnight EST Monday November 14, in both my Digichick store here and my GingerScraps store here.

HERE IS SOME WONDERFUL INSPIRATION BY A GROUP OF AMAZINGLY TALENTED LADIES, WITH MY THANKS

Kim is a more traditional scrapper and her layouts show that digital can work just as well, if not better, than paper scrapping.
