Gratitude

Hi everyone!  Guess what!  I made my first layout in probably 3 years!  I started  Project life in 2009, and basically abandoned my old way of scrapbooking.  I took Stacy Julian's Library of Memories this summer, and then I began to subscribe to Studio Calico.  Well, I am so glad I did!  I decided to try this week's Layout a week Challenge, and the assignment was to create a LO or card with a "gratitude" theme.  I made tons of mistakes, including getting ink on my photo.  But I am going to reprint and replace the photo, and call it good.  I used the Field Guide kit from Studio Calico, with a few Basic Grey Hopscotch brads, and the October Studio AE stamp set from Technique Tuesday.  Oh, and the design?  Shamelessly lifted from a template from Jessica Sprague.


 I challenged myself to only use the kit, and stamps, and my "clean up" was SO much easier than when I used to take out everything I owned.
 Forgot to mention that I also used My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Doily stamps on my journaling block.
Also, my husband LOVES this layout.  I am thankful that I took the time to make it.
