Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you're able to roll out of bed. I know I'm going to be hitting the gym next week to burn off all this ham and bread I've been eating. Our Thanksgiving was good. We spent the morning with my dad and his wife and mother-in-law and then quickly came back to spend time with my mom. Luckily eating wasn't involved in that visit. To top off the night we went to my father-in-law's house to eat with him and my 2 brother-in-laws. I tried not to eat too much at each place but the gorging happened the day after. Left overs! Oh yeah.
It's day 3 of my long weekend off of work. I've been spending this time crafting away. This holiday class I'm taking is keeping me busy! I still haven't taken any pictures of what I've come up with yet, but I'll make sure to upload it before the weekend ends.
Today is also Saturday so that means it's time for Unscripted Sketches. I picked up these cute Yule card embellishments by Making Memories and was itching to use them. I opted for a transparency cover because I love transparency. I traced the bracket out of paper and used it to cut the transparency card I had, which I then trimmed off the rest of the card and adhered it to the brown cardstock. I wanted to make the transparency stand out a little so I added the glitter border. I'm all about glitter right now so I also touched up the rest pf the embellishments too.
I also finished a LO for Sketchy Thursdays. I stole one of Miss Akela's pics that I think is just adorable. She loves to take self portraits of herself and this is one of my favorites.
I wanted to use supplies that were an expression of Miss Akela. She's a little punk girl who has this mad style. I definitely had a hard time finding punk supplies that fit her so I'll need to reup on some. I like how it turned out though. Hopefully she'll like it too.

Have a fabulous Saturday! I have tons of things to do today. Going to finish up sewing these pillow case covers for the couch and some pants for the hubby. I think we're going to get our Yule tree today so I'm excited about that. The best thing I love about the holidays is the Yule tree and the decorations.
