Happy Creative Thanksgiving

I want to wish all of my Canadian friends a happy Thanksgiving :)
I had my family over tonight for a yummy turnkey dinner.
I cooked a 8kg (17.6 lb) turkey and 4.5 kg (10 lbs) of potatoes for my family of 13 :)
Ashley did a photo shoot, while the family was all together :)

Even though I was cooking and cleaning today, I still had time to craft :)
Remember my "Memo Board" I had altered ?
I needed a holder for my marker
Then I saw this clip on the side of my fridge and thought it would be perfect!!
It would work great, but not to pretty…...

I grabbed a scrap of pretty paper.
I punched out a circle and then inked the edges with distress ink.
Now it is pretty just like this….but…….

But I know just the thing to pretty it up even more :)

I have quiet a few flair badges.
I seem to hoard them more than use them.
But decided this would be a great project to use one on, as I get to keep it and look at it all of the time, teehee.

What to choose, what to choose?
I opted for this mini flair designed and gifted to me by Elise from "Feed your Craft"
I thought it was perfect for my memo board marker holder.

What do you think?
Cute and functional, wouldn't you say :)

I hope you all had a very creative day and if you celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, hope you enjoyed time with your family :)
