Grateful

This month really reminds you of the blessings you have, all the things you should be grateful for...so when I recieved the inspiration photo and quote for this month, I knew immediately what I wanted to do!

Tessa from Precocious Paper is hosting an month long event "Attitude of Gratitude", basically journaling, scrapping, blogging, whatever method you chosse, but just doing something to express what you are grateful for, the blessings in your life. I thought it would be wonderful to play along, and a wonderful journal that can be there for my girls when they get older, to read about things that were/are important to me, maybe help them to get to know the women I am today.

So I paired my PPD photo along with Tessa's project, and made a Gratful journal. I used a Fancy Pants brag book, and hope to fill it with lots of journaling, some photos, and mini layouts. Here is the fabulous photo for this month.


Here is the cover of my journal..I was inspired by the inspirational quote, the plates, and the deep fall colors.
( my attempt at staging my project..not sure I completely pulled it off. LOL)


I hope that you take the time to join in with both challenges this month! :)


The ladies at the PPD have lots of fun prizes lined up this month, so make sure you play along and link up your project by the 15th of this month for a chance to win...and also don't forget to show your favorite designer how grateful you are for them, by heading back to the PPD after you finish the hop and voting! :)

Thanks for stopping by, now you are off to be inspired by the talented Debby.

Love how you worked the colors in, but where are those delicious pies to drool over? Love the geometric feel to the circles.
