Mosh Posh Blog Hop + a Giveaway


Welcome to another Mosh Posh Blog Hop!!

Every month I look forward to the Mosh Posh kit that Kristen puts together. I have been with Mosh Posh as part of the Design Team for 2 years now and was a subscriber before that. I know that there are lots of kit clubs out there - trust me, I have tried most of them! I love Mosh Posh because of Kristen's awesome customer service and the fun kits that she puts together. I would never be part of a Design Team that I didn't believe in. Kristen was the very first person to put me on a Design Team, so I guess that she must believe in me too!

As I was looking through my Mosh Posh layouts, I noticed that I seem to have a slight obsession with using trees for my fall layouts. Just a slight obsession. Oh, and it might not just be in the fall either.

Alright, are you ready for another giveaway??? I had so much fun decorating my trees for this month's Corn Maze layout that I thought that I should give away some of my favorite embellishments: brads! There are velvet brads, shaped brads, large brads and mini brads. Any kind of brad that you can imagine. Well, except for my Brad.


Hahahahahaha. I crack myself up. Anyway...

For a chance to win these super fun brads, leave me a comment telling me all about your favorite Thanksgiving side dish. I am working on my menu and need some inspiration. You have until Sunday, November 22nd to leave me a comment. I will pick a winner on Monday.

Now, hop along to check out what my fellow Design Team Members are up to! Happy Thursday!!

So love the Brad comment too!! Fun to see a pic of him!!! Can I pick two?? I love sweet potatoes with the marshmellows and pecans, but also love homemade cranberry sauce. Found a yummy recipe online last year. I think this year, I am going to try brining our turkey!! Better pull that bird out of the freezer and get it thawing!!

I am obsessed with flowers and butterflies but I promise one day I will create something out of my comfort zone, about the Thanks giving side dish I would say I enjoy mashed potatos as simple as that...
Take Care

abbie said...

I pick mashed potatoes...no, macaroni and cheese.....maybe green bean casserole....no, sweet potatoes....

Ok, I really can't decide. I love Thanksgiving food! Can you tell? :)

JPScraps said...

Love your style!! Favorite side dish? Easy cheesy mashed potatoes :)

Amanda Sevall said...

I love your trees!! And they are always so different and creative :)

As for side dishes for Thanksgiving, we do all the classics. Mashed potatoes + gravy, yams w/marshmallows (fresh yams too, no canned for us!), stuffing (the BEST recipe -- Martha Stewart's classic stuffing -- yum!), green bean casserole (from scratch with homemade onions for the top!), cranberry sauce (from fresh cranberries), bread rolls (again, you guessed it, from scratch!). This year though, we are trying a new-to-us dish that my Mom makes -- sweet potatoes + apples. I'm intrigued. :)

Good luck planning your feast for next week! :)

Amanda Sevall said...

Oh and you want any recipes, just shoot me an e-mail... always happy to share with ya! ;)

NLR said...

My favorite Thanksgiving dish??? I have to pick just one? I would go with stuffing--especially if it is soaked with turkey drippings!! YUM!

Lindsay said...

HAHAHA! I laughed outloud when you said "except my Brad". :) That was a good one. ;)
My favorite side dish for Thanksgiving is homemade mashed potatoes. Mmmm... I am making a salad this year though. It is going to have spinach leaves, cranberries, glazed walnuts, feta cheese, bacon bits, blueberries, granny smith apples and dressing. MMM I just made my mouth water thinking about it!
Thanks for the chance to win. I adore all of the trees you have featured, especially the one covered in the brads! Brads are one of my favorite embellishments and are so versatile and can be used for anything!

Angie said...

I love your trees, my favourite side dish is the stuffing, I can just eat that all by itself. I am so wanting some right now!!

Heather said...

You can't go wrong with trees! Love them!
I could really eat some sweet potato chips with caramel and brown sugar sauce! Oh, my mouth is watering!

Heather Landry said...

Amber said...

Mushroom Rice (it's the easiest recipe EVER!) - 1 can beef consumme, 1 can french onion soup, 1 stick of butter (melted), 1 cup long grain regular rice (not instant!), and 1 small can of mushrooms (drained). Stir together in an 8x8 pan and cook for 45 minutes at 350...it is a HIT at every holiday/gettogether/event. And easy peasy!

Diana Fisher said...

LOL, my DH is a "Brad" too. Always makes me smile. Love the trees, love the projects, great stuff!!!

Nitasha said...

Adorable LOs...well, I'm the girl that brings the drinks, cups or anything that doesn't involve cooking, so I'm really not the one to give side dish advice- LOL- but I love to EAT homedade mash potatoes!

{Sarah} said...

Haha, your Brad joke was funny, you crack me up too! =) Oh and I happen to think your trees rock, obsession or not, they're the BEST. Hmm, my fav dish is probably sweet potatoes, with marshmallows, of course!!

LotsToScrap said...

My favorite side dish is Sweet Potato Balls!!! The recipe (and a scrappy page of it) is up on my blog:

I love all things food wise, but one thing I always look forward to is the deviled eggs. Seems like I never make these for myself, but we always have them with big holiday dinners.

Wendy said...

I like to make orange, cranberry jello salad. And would love to win some brads!

Glynis said...

My favorite thanksgiving side is roast vegitables - a combination of baby potatos, butternut squash, garlic cloves and onion seasoned with rosmary, salt & pepper and a little olive oil.
I think the trees are great, each unique to its layout.

Michelle said...

I LOVE your layouts and what you did with the brads is gorgeous! I'm a brad lover! My favorite side dish is sweet potatoes. I don't know if you consider bread a side dish but i also cant do without my pumpkin bread smeared with cream cheese and my grandmas roll recipe.YUM!

KateB said...

I know it's a southern thing but I do love potato salad, even at Thanksgiving!

Amy (aka Aimitup) said...

Love your layouts! How about the old favorite - green bean casserole?

mickismith said...

Just found your blog and am loving what you did with the trees/brads! How fun!

My fave Thanksgiving dish has always been the rice, cheese and broccoli casserole - even back when I was a kid and hated the broccoli (just ate the rice and cheese from under the offending green veggie). I plan on making some this year, even if it means I have to eat leftovers for a week. What torture! ;)

Queen of Paper said...

THESE ARE ALL SOOO CUTE I love all the trees!

HAPPY THANKS GIVING Friend :)
Have a good one
