Exploring Cricut Be Thankful Challenge

Hi! This week's challenge is Thanksgiving, and this is the November insert for my monthly tray project.

All cuts were done with the CCR Thanksgiving Seasonal Digital Package. I learned a whole bunch during the process which wasn't always pretty! My laptop updated to Windows 8, and no amount of tricks would get that  @#$%^ CCR working. I finally uninstalled the Windows 8 "upgrade" (HAH!) and got it to working.
All the cuts were cut with basic cardstock scraps, and the Happy Thanksgiving stamp was a $1 find at Jo-Anns, which was stamped on scrap bg paper with brown Studio G ink.

I can't wait for the Christmas one to be done, I think your gonna like it!

I'm also submitting to the following challenges:
