Paper Trail Goes Huntington

This month the Paper Trail Blog Hop features the wonderfully elegant Huntington.  If you are hopping from Karen, you already know about the rich, autumn tones used in this paper pack.  My intention was to do something non "Fall" with these beautiful papers but alas, they compelled me to look over my family Thanksgiving albums.  While these photos are not the wonderful quality of our now professional family photographers, they are dear to my heart and speak of our traditional family gatherings and fit in albums I'm building.  (Yeah, albums.........I have six albums with over 30 double sided layouts and have started Number seven.  I don't scrap in order and I only start a new book when the books get too heavy to lift.  I never worry about archival quality products or thickness of my layouts.  I just record the moments, people, and love.)  So, back to 2009 Thanksgiving.  My family traditionally gathers every Thanksgiving and have typically have five to 32 for dinner.  The more the merrier.  Kids go off to college, babies are born, people are married, cousin come into town, there are dueling turkeys, different venues, different themes, dozens of pies, and always family love.  So this is 2009, amateur photos and all.  If you want to be inspired by more, follow the trail to Connie's blog.
