So incredibly thankful


Today, I'm sharing the 15th Sketch for Pages With Papertrey. This month, I chose a sketch from the November 2012 Page Maps:




I'd noticed a challenge on the Crate Paper blog this week to create a project with the theme "thankful." Since I have so much to be thankful for, I decided to make a layout using this sketch.


I was having some difficulties printing my photos at home onto glossy paper, so I ended up pasting them in Word along with my journaling and printing them all out onto some Papertrey Ink rustic white cardstock.

I used Crate Paper patterned paper and Papertrey Ink cardstock (canyon clay, aqua mist, ocean tides), stamps (stitches and swirls, lovely layers, counting my blessings, beautiful blessings), buttons, twine and dies (double-ended banner, heart border, counting my blessings, love lives here, half & half).

Here's a close-up of my journaling... Of course, I thought of other things I could add afterwards (like my health!)...


I also decided to make include a little pocket instead of a photo, for this week's Make It Monday at PTI.


When you pull out the tag, it reveals...


... one of my favourite verses!

If you make a layout using this month's sketch, please post a link to it either here in the comments of my blog or here in the PTI forum, so I can see what you made.

Thanks for looking!

I'm very late posting a comment, but have to compliment you again on your talents. I love each and every layout you create, & would completely copy each (if I had the time). I try to have scrapbooks for my grandkids. It was easy with the 1st, a little challenging with the 2nd, & nearly impossible with the 3rd. Need to get back at it since Christmas 2012 is over. Thank you so much for sharing & inspiring!
