Saturday Share - Imaginisce

Each Saturday an Imaginisce designer shares a Project Life page. I don't have a life to do Project Life with 3 kids in college but I do like the pages for organizing my vacation photos so that I can share my trip with family and friends quickly. But I took a stab at generating a Thanksgiving Project Life page which of course had to be about this little competition my husband and I have. You see we have a turkey war going on. Each Thanksgiving my husband fries a turkey and I do a traditional oven turkey. The competition, who cooks the tastiest bird. Last year he won, due to a new injectable marinade I tried when I couldn't find any Cajan injectible marinade since my local Gander Mountain closed. My husband's family and my family get together to feast on more than just turkey. It's not Thanksgiving in a Nix house without Grandma Nix's cream peas and its not Thanksgiving in a Dehn house without my sister's pies (made with my Mom's pie crust recipe).  Holidays are great for documenting family traditions. While its important to capture those memories on film, don't forget to document other important family traditions like those coveted recipes passed down from generation to generationI want my kids to have these recipes so that they can carry on with the tradition so I thought why not include them on my Project Life page. I love that my family can celebrate Thanksgiving with both sides of the family, even if it means all (30-40 some people) are at our house. 

Because I want to be able to pull the recipes out to use them, I adhered my embellishments on top of the plastic over these pockets. I ran the Project Life Journal Cards through my computer printer to document our families recipes.

The Bushel O' Fall collection is perfect for your Thanksgiving projects. Did you know the journal cards when cut apart are the perfect size for Project Life pages! They are awesome for adding journaling or just embellishing.
