All about being Thankful at UIT

It's time for a new challenge at Use it Tuesday ,and it's all about being Thankful.
Show us what your thankful for. 
 You can create a layout, card or altered art project as long as you use items from your stash .
  Just remember to list what items you used from your stash.
For an added challenge try to make the whole project from your stash like I did

I'm thankful for being able to spend Thanksgiving with my family.  This year might be the last one we get to celebrate with my husbands mother.  She's in failing health and having a difficult time getting around.
Even though the pictures aren't the greatest.  I wanted to have a LO from 2011 with my mother in law in it.

I think it's rather fitting that the base of this layout is from paper I inherited from my mother in laws stash this past weekend.   My father in law is starting to clean out the house so the kids will have less to deal with when the time comes.  So thankful for that.
I framed the photo of the food as 2011 was the first year that we did everything for Thanksgiving dinner.
The only problem is that you could see my backside as I worked at the sink so I covered as much of it up as I could with the Autumn leaves and tag.

the chevron strips are from an Old creative memories short cut pack.  I just smeared them with ink the unify the color scheme and update the look.  I'm not sure where the journal box and matching leaves came from since they have been in my stash for awhile
I tucked and weaved the photos into the chevron strips.

Hope you enjoy my creation and look forward to seeing what you create
