The best gift of all

I opened my email this morning to the most fabulous email ever.

My fabulous friend Catherine adopted that beautiful bird in my name! Can you believe it? I have never been so touched in my life : ) Catherine and I are both vegetarian so it means a lot to me that she did this wonderful gesture. For those that are not vegetarian it's okay : ) Being a vegetarian is not for everyone. I hope you still enjoy your wonderful Thanksgiving dinners.

I also wanted to share a layout I did playing along with the fabulous Design Dollies!!!!! I was fortunate to be a guest DT in October and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to play along with them since due to many visitors in the MacDonald household. Now that we are free of visitors I can get back on track and get my scrapping done!!!
So this week elements challenge was to do a clean and simple layout but to also use brads or beads in an obvious way. Here's what I did:

This is definitely clean and simple for me. The Dollies are so fun to play along. Go HERE to join the fun.
