Scrappin' Saturday - Home for the Holidays Layout

Welcome to Scrappin' Saturday!  I love the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, because the season is filled with one thing I'm very thankful for -- family!  It's often a time to see extended family and spend time with special loved ones.  The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is reported to be the busiest travel day of the year in the U.S., which inspired me to share a spectacular layout today from Monique Griffith Designs.  It's an "oldie" from 2009, but definitely a goodie that captures those precious memories we gather at home during this time of year.

Monique used Winter Woodland and Everyday Paper Dolls for this layout celebrating the joy of travelling home for the holidays.  Don't you just love all the details...?!  My favorites are the embossing on the house and the ribbons and snow.  The inking and doodling also add whimsy and warmth to this layout.  And how cute is that puppy in the window...?!

I'm totally filing this idea away for our travel photos next year -- maybe even an autumn/Thanksgiving variant.

So, were you one of the millions on the roads this weekend?  Have any layouts to share of those holiday roadtrip photos?  Please share them in the comments for all of us to see!

Have a happy, scrappy weekend!
