Thankful Layout for {Practical Scrappers}

I absolutely love November for so many reasons, one of which is the colors - I am truly a brown, rust, beige, toss in a bit of burn orange and blue kind of a girl.  This month's layout sketch from Practical Scrappers was the perfect set up for a time to reflect on what I am thankful for.  Last year, I started documenting daily the things, people, events that I am thankful for.  This year, I am continuing the practice.

One of the many things that I am thankful for is, of course, my family.  They bring so much joy and wonderment to my life that I could not imagine life without them.  This summer - we went to the Redwood Forest to tent camp and hike.  I am absolutely thankful that I have time with them to explore the outdoors and share memories.

A couple of my scrappy gal pals at Creative Embellishments have a November challenge up on their blog and all you need to do is to use this photo as inspiration.
I love the photo and of course the colors - so I combined the color challenge with my sketch challenge using this sketch from Practical Scrappers:
