Count Your Blessing layout made using the NEW Thanksgiving Cricut mini

Hello,everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I spent the weekend getting ready for my six year old's first day back at school. Let me tell you I just can't wait to get back into the swing of things. Him going back to school means I can actually really clean my house with out disruption. It also means that me, Joy, and Scrapguy are going to lunch...woohoo!!

I have a layout today that I made with the NEW Thanksgiving mini. This is my second favorite of the new releases. I have always wanted a Thanksgiving cartridge and now there is one! WOOOHOOO!!


I used the new SEI line called Morovia. It is perfect for those fall layouts!
I cut the title at 2 3/4".
I cut the Pilgrims at 2 1/2".

Have a great Monday!!

This is a real nice layout, but I have to tell you that at first I thought it was a card since it wasn't a double paged layout. Then I was looking at the picture rectangle in the middle and couldn't for the life of me figure out why you had the blank rectangle in the middle of the card? Then it hit me! Duh!
