Have Gratitude? Win product!!
November is a month to reflect on our blessings and give thanksgiving. This week at The Paper Element I would like to offer you an inspirational challenge, simply use one of the quotes on the subject of gratitude offered below on a layout. The new "Hot Chocolate" line has wonderful warm colors for your fall photographs and Thanksgiving day pictures. And if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving where you are reading from - every day is a good day to count your blessings and scrap about it! Visit the Paper Element - have fun with the challenge and be sure to share a link in your comment!
"Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends. " - Courtland Milloy
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." -John Fitzgerald Kennedy
"By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name." -Hebrews 13:15
"Love wholeheartedly, be surprised, give thanks and praise… then you will discover the fullness of your life." - Brother David Steindl-Rast
I treated the chipboard Fancy Frame by drybrushing green paint, misting with Terra Cotta Glimmer Mist and stitching around edges. I printed out the journal strips, and traced over the word "Gratitude" with a glaze pen.
Who makes this awesone brad? Any idea? It came in my kit from The Paper Element and I am drooling heavily over this wonderful brad, and hope it comes in smaller sizes too!
The Magistical Memories scroll is definitely very cool! I dry brushed the chip with iron oxide paint, and misted heavily with Terra Cotta and Latte. I doodled some around the edges with a brown Zig Writer to add definition. Don't forget about the free shipping offer at Magistical Memories this month!
