Frying Tom Thanksgiving layout

Layout before adding journaling and photos

Turkey - 3" Create a Critter 2

 Hi this is Terri from http://scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com/ this month for my project I am sharing a layout I made reflective of this past Thanksgiving. Hoping everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving. I know I did.
The past few years the tradition has been to get a Turkey and fry him. This year was no different. My family all crammed into my brother's apartment for Turkey Day. My husband was in charge of frying the bird. I will say - for those who have never had a fried turkey it is so super yummy. We use an electric fryer and it works wonderfully.
I must admit in the past 8 years of frying the turkey I have never taken photos. So this year I knew instantly that I wanted to make a series of photos showing what steps go into making the this wonderful bird.

I used the paper from DCWV -- Citrus stack and also Fall harvest stack (for the solid paper).

Cartridges used:
Create a Critter 2 - Turkey cut at 3"
Arts Philosophy - Square 4 cut at 4"
Arts Philosophy - Banner  1" each
Billionaire - Welded the words Frying Tom cut at 1"
Billionaire - 2012 - cut .80"

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the accent red and also used a square punch to cut  date tag at the bottom.

The orange rhinestones are from Queen & Co.
Hemp Twine - from Michael's
