The Color Room 86

What a wonderful Thanksgiving this has been! I must say that my sweet potatoes and my pecan pie turned out quite well! DH made the most wonderful turkey combining techniques from Alton Brown and a couple of other recipes. The stuffing was a complete miss but there was way too much food to cry over dried bread :)  I am completely full and very happy that our first Thanksgiving meal turned out so well! It certainly helped to have taken a day off yesterday for some prep work! Ironically enough, as much as I enjoyed the sweet potatoes and pecan pie, I really can't imagine eating them again for a long while, lol.

I am finally back with a Color Room layout! It seems hardly possible that I went from doing every palette to skipping nine palettes in a row!  I felt tremendous relief when I finally shook off the dust and faced my colorless wall and made this layout.  For that, I am also extremely thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving, Jing-Jing (from the North Shore! ;) ) I am happy to hear you had a wonderful day. I use Alton's brine recipe for my turkey. YUM! This is year three with that. What a great design with your page. I love the color palette as well. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!! :)

Lovin' the circles! Sounds like your Thanksgiving was a resounding success :) Not too bad at work, transport in the morning and delivery in the afternoon. Today...probably not so lucky :P

what a fun alyout and love that you did not use the usual fall papers! A hint of the orange in the polka dots is enough to pull to color together from the pumpkins in the photos! Perfect layout!

I was excited to see this on TCR wall the other night .. I'd been wondering what was up? Thought it was so unique to get a pumpkin page out of those colors! Love the circles and I must lift that!

I adore your published fabric page .. simply divine .. so clean and such great papers .. you really have an eye for that!

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving, as did we.

Glad your Thanksgiving dinner was a success, Jing Jing! Sounds wonderful! I did pretty well, too......although my bird ended up being a bit too dry. LOVE this layout! Your use of the circle elements is fabulous. Love how they lead your eye right across the page. The colors are beautiful, too. Really love that combo. :)
