Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I found this Contest Challenge Link on the "Canadian Scrapper's Carnival Bog"
for a November Guest Design Team Member Spot at Scrapbooker's Clubhouse Blog.

The Challenge,to create Altered Thanksgiving Table Decorations.
I like to take on different Contests that I find with the idea in mind that I will enter.

Sometimes it works out that way,but most times I am just happy to have completed the challenge and be happy with what I have created.
This is one of those moments..I thought it would be nice though to give credit to where I found my inspiration .

The Pilgrim Hat is created from Pepperidge Farm "Pirouette" Rolled Cookie Tin.
Using adhesive backed black Felt,brown Felt and a Chipboard frame embossed using Versa Mark Ink and Copper Embossing Powder.


Using branches from my Lilac Tree sprayed with Clear Acrylic Sealer.
Dried Moss to cover the top and Styrofoam for holding the branches in place



Stamping my Card Stock with Versa Mark Ink. Using some wonderful leaf stamps from "Close to My Heart" and embossing with different colors of embossing powder.



Layering the back of my Card stock Leaves with Patterned Paper,Inking the edges with
Rangers Antique Linen Distress Ink.


adding a few extra twigs and curly Q's from my back woods.


My daughter-in-law, has graciously accepted to have the centerpiece grace her Thanksgiving Table this year as we celebrate Thanksgiving for the first time in her new home.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadian Scrappers and Crafters, hope you all have a lovely Holiday ! :)
