Documenting Your Life with ADB Designs

The First Thanksgiving Digital Scrapbook Collection is inspired by the first harvest celebrations of Native Americans and Pilgrims in 1621.

Commemorate the holiday this year with pictures from your gathering.The color palette consists of soft browns, yellows and golds, with color pops of lavender and rust. Pilgrims and Native American children, pumpkins, gourds and turkeys are all present to decorate your pages, along with traditional Thanksgiving foods like pumpkin pie and a wishbone! And, of course, there are flowers, foliage and ribbons to add extra flair to your pages.  
Documenting Your Life Questions/Prompt [Q132]
  • Scrap photos of family at the Thanksgiving table, current photos or one from the past.. 
  • Scrap about a Thanksgiving trip you have taken. If no photos, include images of food or other scenes from the web (be sure they are public domain).
  • Journal what you are thankful for.
I love to share gifts to help inspire you or to help you complete a page quickly. Today I have a brand new gift from my First Thanksgiving Collection, a Stacker created by Nancy that is just perfect for a variety of photos.

I am so proud when I see layouts created with my collections.  I would love to have you share them with me via one or both of my challenge threads in the forum.

I hope you find inspiration with the layouts my Creative Team have contributed from First Thanksgiving.  Here are the layouts along with the previews from the collection.

Check my forum challenges for more gifts!

Happy scrapping!

Featured Designer: PapierStudio

Featured Designer at MyMemories – November 7 – 8 (2021)

 Hello! My name is Silke from PapierStudio and I have been a designer for more than 10 years at My Memories.

I have been married to Egon for 42 years and we have a son Thomas and our dear daughter-in-law Karin.

When the pandemic started, we left the big city São Paulo and took refuge in our cottage in the mountains of Monte Verde - Minas Gerais.

Here we are surrounded by beautiful mountains and a lot of nature.

Photographing birds, toucans, squirrels and all the nature that surrounds us is my hobby.

Near our mountainous region Thomas bought a large area high up called Sítio São Mateus, at 1400m altitude, to make an olive plantation. Egon is in charge of the administration! It's a totally new activity for us, but very interesting and enjoyable! And the place looks beautiful. In November, at the beginning of the rainy season, we are going to plant the first seedlings. 500 olive seedlings to start.

The last quarter of the year is always very busy for us designers and I love this time. In addition to digital scrapbooking, I am also involved in hybrid projects such as diaries and calendars. I do it for a large group of relatives and friends.

I thought it might be fun to share some of my personal favorites of my designs.
