Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I want to wish everyone a super Happy Thanksgiving from my family to all of you Arnold Grummer fans.  In a few hours I will be stuffing my face with turkey, homemade pie, and my dad's yummy cornbread dressing!! I can not wait....  For the Arnold Grummer Design Team Hop I made a whole book of papers and covered the front with leaves I picked up walking.  All the paper inside was handmade in my blender with the Arnold Grummer kit, but this is not my project for today.  

I made a layout and used the papers I made to construct some of the flowers.  At first, I was not sure how it would hold up but it worked out perfectly.  For whatever reason the papers take on sprays and inks well.  I made the brown and blue colored flowers with the papers.  So if there are any flower lovers making your paper for your flowers is perfect almost like mulberry paper!! Definitely the way to go.

This is the book I made from a previous post

These are the paper from the book

And here is the layout I made and my handmade flowers.  Everyone should really give this a try!!  This a November kit from the Flying Unicorn and various pieces from it.
