  Sensational Colors
I will admit, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There is just something magical about a day set apart from all the rest to just focus on being thankful. I love the entire day. From the crazy early morning cooking, football games, Thanksgiving Day Parade, and, of course, all the family gathering around the table. This month's color scheme is all about the colors of that amazing day. May they inspire your next Thanksgiving Day layout!

"For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Josie Stewart. I currently live in Utah with my wonderful husband and four beautiful girls. We own a wedding decorating business where I get to be creative and work with brides to design the decorations for their special day—I love it! I have always loved scrapbooking and found digital scrapbooking to be much easier than traditional. Designing was very intriguing and I teamed up with my sister to create DK Designs. We have been designing for over two years now and have had a lot of fun working together and for iScrapbook.com. I love sharing my passion for design and I hope you enjoy my creations! Happy Scrapping!" Learn more about Josie
