Yvonne Blair Gratitude Journal featuring Memorabilia

Hi everyone! Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week??? 
I am so excited because I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year!
It is the first time.  
We will be having my whole in-law family here for dinner.
I am a little nervous, but I think it will all be just fine, wink.  
In honor of Thanksgiving I created this little Gratitude Journal.
I wanted to be able to have a small book that I could slip into my scrapbook with the traditional scrapbook 
two page spread.  Now I can contain everything within that spread.  Love that. 
I will put it in between the two page layout using a page protector that I cut down to size and then sealed with Decorative tape from the Memorabilia line.  It really is neat to be able to customize page protectors doing this.  I use this technique quite often actually.
The book itself is 4 1/4 x 9 3/4.  It will fit nicely in a pocket page protector. 
I cut three of the Memorabilia papers to 8 1/2 x 9 3/4, folded them in half and adhered them back to back. 
I covered the spine with Memorabilia Decorative tape to finish it off. 

Above there is a fold out where I can add some hidden journaling.
 I love using Teresa's envelopes as a place to stick extra embellishments, but it is also a great place to be able to write and tuck some more personal feelings. 
 This is where I will add pics from the day that are not included on the two page layout.  
I plan on using my instax camera alot on Thanksgiving and this will be a great place to tuck those pics. 

 Here is a little close-up of the front cover.  I like the layers.  The stamps are from Teresa's line she did with Fiskars that is selling at Joann's.  Love this set.  Perfect for this time of year! 
I have  a couple of other quick little projects that I will be sharing over on my blog.  Just click here to check them out! 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a very very Happy Thanksgiving!
