Greetings from Thanksgiving Central, aka my mom's house!

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Did you feast until you fainted? I did. Seems like I sleep more every day that passes. In my defense, I've been battling a sinus infection, which I finally just got over. I've seen my in-laws only once since I've been here, and I got here last Monday. I just haven't felt well at all.

Today I whipped out ye ol scrapbooking supplies (yes, I totally brought my stuff with me!) to work up a page for a sketch challenge site I found just last night. I love this little blog already and am adding it to my bookmarks. It's called Gettin' Sketchy. Every month or so, one of the founders of the blog create a sketch and challenge the readers to create something using that template.

This is my take on the current sketch, which can be viewed here. The prize this month is sponsored by none other than the gals at the Red Velvet Kit Club. If you haven't heard of them (this means you Sharon, Jenn, and Adri!) go check them out. They sell hip items in their kits, and also host tiny competitions once in a while.

And once again I used products that mostly came from my Scrapologie kit, this time October's. The things that weren't in the kit include the bits of lace and ribbon, the two square stickers, brads, the chipboard circle, and the pink scenic route paper (journaling circle and scalloped edge). Oh and the journal stamp is from my private collection as well.

Things are going to get busy soon, and I want to scrap as much as possible before Christmas creeps up on me. Plus, once Joe comes home I'm sure we'll be a little preoccupied.
