Tradition Layouts and Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Doodlebug Design. We are thankful for our blog followers, customers and retail partners and hope you enjoy time today surrounded by people you love!

We thought it would be fun to share some layouts focused on traditions since this time of year we focus on many traditions with our families.

Upholding The Tradition
by Melinda Spinks

One of the most memorable traditions I remember whilst growing up were the games of backyard football and cricket. It was almost always played when the cousins came over for Christmas or family get-togethers and was a very 'serious' competition! Well not really, but it was allot of fun and one of the rare times when the adults would stop working and just play! I decided to really focus on the colours of the photographs and create a whimsical style page to run with the theme of fun and frivolity and I'm just loving 'brads' at the moment which added that extra touch of whimsy.

St. Maarten Tradition
by Monique Liedtke

Monique created a layout about the "St. Maarten" tradition they have in The Netherlands. It's a bit similar to Halloween: in the evening of November 11children carrying lanternsring the bells of neighbouring housessing a song and ask for sweets. For this page she used the Halloween collection "Haunted Manor".
