What I Did Last Weekend: OUAS

The challenge at Once Upon a Sketch was to answer the question"What are you doing this weekend?"
Here in Canada, it was Thanksgiving weekend. Here is my layout:
Any other year, this would have been a picture of me cooking a turkey. But I did things a little differently this year!  It was a beautiful time spent with family, and at the same time it was non-traditional.
The journalling reads:
One thing I did not do: cook a turkey! I ordered one and we enjoyed a happy stress-free day.
I did take time to scrap and I discovered something important: my compulsion to scrap is my way to shine a light on the generations.
I had extra time, and felt so creative as a result!  As you can see from the photo, there was time to get started on this layout for Once Upon a Sketch. It was the best of both worlds - family gathering and scrap time too.
Thanks for looking!
