"Best Day" for Sketch 'n' Scrap

Have you ever been at an event and you just get so wrapped up in visiting or cooking or dealing with the kids that you forget to snap ANY photos?  I find it happens less now that I have a smartphone, but still, it does happen occasionally, and it almost happened again this Thanksgiving!  We had a wonderful family dinner this year, but I only took 4 photos to commemorate it, oops!
I love how this layout turned out, mostly because of the photos of my goofy kids!  

I used products mostly from my November Counterfeit Kit, although I did cheat a bit by adding a feather, a doily, and some olive green card stock that weren't part of my original kit.  

My other favourite things about this layout are the Kelly Purkey wood veneer pieces and the gold "foil" title, arrow, and doily.  Here are some close ups of those details:


And, as per usual, I've used a sketch for this page, this time a lovely one I found on the Sketch 'N' Scrap blog:


And that's it from me for today.  I hope you're getting lots of crafty time for yourself this month, and thanks for stopping by to say hi!
