I was inspired earlier this week to scrap photos of my son and his friend working on their Turkey plaques:

Turkey Hands

Supplies: Tiffany Tillman’s Simple ‘n Straight template and papers by Jen Allyson & Karen Funk from Design House Digital Fall Blog Hop kit; labels (recolored) from Michelle Underwood’s Bright Smiles kit; fonts.

After the boys had completed their handprint on the plaques, Stacey and I helped them make an extra print on a piece of white cardstock.  We added beaks, wattles and legs to them with markers.  Then scanned the turkeys for Thanksgiving cards:

On the inside of my son’s cards, I printed the same poem that’s on the back of the plaques (returning to the original wording of “it comes with…”).  I helped him write “Love, Dylan” with crayon and then he added his own personal touch, coloring each one:


Happy Thanksgiving!
