It's the first Monday in October and time for a new Linky Challenge and Blog Hop. Fall is in full swing, Halloween is coming up fast, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. With that in mind, the theme for this month's challenge and Blog Hop is "Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart." We challenged the design team to create a hostess gift, card, wall hanging, mixed media project, altered art or mini album with a Thanksgiving/Thankfulness theme. I've had a sneak peek of all the different projects, and I can tell you, there's some fabulous inspiration coming your way in today's post.
But before we get started with the hop, we have to announce the winner of our Halloween giveaway. We had asked you to share your favorite Halloween traditions with us, and you all had so many great ideas to share. It was wonderful to hear from you all.
The winner of the TRADITIONAL prize package is Susan McMenamin who said,
"I would love to win your traditional prize package.It would fit right in with my favorite Halloween activity-surprising friends and coworkers with cards and treats!"
The winner of the DIGITAL prize package is LeAnne who said,
"We don't get any trick-or-treaters because we live in the country too, like Margie! So my favorite tradition is carving out jack-o-lanterns and putting them on our porch. Nobody sees them but us, but it's still fun! And I have lots of Halloween decorations that I like to arrange around the house, and that makes me happy! I love Halloween! And I love CS stuff, in fact, I already have that cute little stamp set, to have it digital so I could re=size it would be awesome!"
