When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Celebrating Thanksgiving


Back to share my latest Digi Choosday DT make with you all. Don't forget to pop over to the main Polkadoodles blog to find out about the new challenge and to link up and join in.

I took inspiration for this challenge by reading up on Thanksgiving and learning about the parades, music and traditions. I thought I'd create a album cover ready to add pages full of those photos people take during celebrations. I used Emma Canning's Band Camp image to represent the music and parades. I coloured her with a mix of markers including the fabulous Graph It's. I used paper, washi tape & elements from my stash. That's the beauty of digital images you can make them work with whatever you have! As you can see I went with the tradition red, white and blue. The paper wasn't the right colour but I coloured over the stars with my pens to match the digi image. Worked a treat. The stars also help to represent the American anthem.

Hope you like this make and I want to wish all my American followers a very happy Thanksgiving.

Take care Zo xx
