Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #142 - Food or Thanksgiving

Good Morning! I hope you all have made it through another Monday. They are always so "Monday", 
why is that? Maybe it's so we enjoy the weekend more. Lol

It's time to join in some fun over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. I got to pick the challenge again this week, yay! We are celebrating Thanksgiving here in The States on Thursday so I decided that a Thanksgiving theme would be fitting. Don't worry, if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving you can still play along. Just use either food or being thankful for your theme. 

There is a group that I belong to called Inky Digits, some of you may have heard me mention it before. Well, it was my daughter Savannah's turn to come up with a project for this weeks meeting. She found these cute little haystacks that you can use for place settings. We sat down on Saturday and made a few so we could show all the other ladies in the group how to do it. They are soooo super easy and fun. All we did was take a 6" X 12" piece of paper, score it at 2" and 4" on the short side, score the long sides every 1/4" to the score lines you made on the short side and cut the 1/4" score lines. Then you roll up the paper and curl down the edges. Easy peasy!! Pretty cute huh? I made one with twine, acorns and punched leaves too but I just had to make one with my fave cutie pie digital fella. Noah and his Prize Winning Pumpkin were just perfect for this project. Kudos to Savannah for finding this one. 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
(and happy crafting y'all!)
