There are so many things in my everyday that I'm Thankful for; my 3 kids, especially. In 2002 & 2004 we were blessed with two healthy boys. Five years later we were blessed and surprised to find out that we would be adding baby number three to our family. My layout uses the Acorn Avenue collection to record my thoughts of being thankful for God's unexpected gifts.
There is so much to be grateful for, but I wanted to document how grateful I am for my children, especially their smiles and the way they help me grow everyday. I had two large photos, so I created a symmetrical design around the title "delightful". On trend papers and embellishments were an ideal fit for both photos. I then sprayed the white paper with green and pink mist before punching it up more with confetti.

I'm very thankful for the ability and desire to travel. Traveling brings me so much adventure and opens my eyes to new cultures, people, and experiences. I just loved the airplane chipboard element to add to a card design to gift to someone who's about to venture off to a new place. I'm also grateful for photography. Now, I'm not the best photographer in the world, but I have a fond appreciation for it and am thankful for the wedding clients we have had in the past. The camera chipboard embellishment really takes center stage in allowing me to thank customers. Always grateful for all of my blessings, but these are just two!
