  1. Love the above layout and video. My favorite Thanksgiving side dish is dressing - almost any kind.

  2. Love the colors in this layout. One of my favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving is lefse - it's a Scandinavian flat bread made with potatoes. Some people eat it with sugar and cinnamon, but I like mine with just butter.

  3. Love how the pictures are positioned in the layout. The colors are beautiful too.

  4. Your layout is beautiful, love the vintage look. My favorite side dish on Thanksgiving is the stuffing. Happy Thanksgiving Joy.

  5. love the video and layout. Don't usually like the floral pages but the way you did it as an accent piece gives
    me lots of creative ideas that I let my fetish get in the way. I don't know why as I do use floral pages as backgrounds on my cards just not on scrapbook layouts. Weird!

  6. Sweet potatoes... Love the ideas. thanks.

  7. Love, love, love Mimi's sweet potatoes!

  8. love the layout and my favorite side is sweet potatoes.

  9. Very pretty layout. Thanks for a chance to win.

  11. My favorite side is broccoli casserole. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. love this layout! My favorite side dish is stuffing and cranberry sauce-the real kind!

  13. What a simple idea to add some fall decoration to your home! My favorite side dish is plain and simple olives. It's my time I get to be 5 again and put them on my fingers :)

Favorite side dish is the dressing! (we don't call it stuffing's always Dressing!)

  26. I just love the Huntington paper! Another great layout!

  32. Cornbread stuffing. I just discovered it a few years ago; before that, I'd used regular bread for the stuffing and really didn't like it.
