It's Almost Turkey Time

It's Monday again, and that means it's time for another fun new challenge at The Kraft Journal.  This week's theme is Turkey Time, so we want to see all of  your fun projects using Kraft paper or other products from The Kraft Outlet, and if you are looking for high-quality Kraft paper packs, then The Kraft Outlet is just the place for you.  They have great prices, low shipping rates, and an AWESOME selection of Kraft paper in various paper weights (all of which are great quality for your various crafting projects).  You will definitely want to check it out.
I made this mini Thanksgiving Memories album by cutting up the piece of cardboard that came free with my Kraft Outlet paper order.  I simply cut it into four squares, covered it in Kraft Lunch Bag Cardstock and then embellished it with various embellishments from The Kraft Outlet, including the darling Jenni Bowlin Memo Note Book pages that I ran through the computer and cut into strips,  and a Mini Burlap Triangle.  Obviously, there are also a few other embellishments on my cover page that are not from the Kraft Outlet. 
On the second page of the book, again I used the Jenni Bowlin Memo Book Pages that I ran through the computer to print off several sentiments (Thanksgiving Memories, Poor Old Tom Turkey, Family Traditions, Give Thanks to God, I Love That Smile).  These darling Jenni Bowlin Memo Notebook pages are darling when used whole (which I did by tucking them into the pockets for journaling) or for sentiment strips.
On the second and third pages, I also used the Tim Holtz Memo Pins again, and the adorable Mini Bottle Caps. They are all adhered to the sweet little Mini Lunch Bag Kraft Envelopes which work so perfectly for decorating and using as journaling spots by tucking the Jenni Bowlin Memo Book Pages inside them. Also, the little buttons are decorated with the Orange Baker's Twine and the Brown Baker's Twine for an extra touch.

 Here are the challenges I'm entering with this Turkey Time/Thankfulness Project: - Pile It On Challenge Blog - Challenge #46 - Let's Be Thankful - Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog - Challenge #123 - Autumn Leaves - Belli Challenge Challenge Blog - Challenge #156 - Harvest/Fruit - The Ribbon Carousel - Challenge #74 - Fall Spirit  The House That Stamps Built - Challenge #117 - Anything That Gives Thanks - Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge #67 - Thanks
I hope you will take the time to check out all the wonderful products at The Kraft Outlet.  I promise that you will be impressed with their prices, variety, quality, and reasonable shipping rates,  Check it out and get to shopping!  The friendly staff is looking forward to meeting you.
