Abundance of Gratitude

Seems like I took an unexpected vacation from blogging. After a fabulous weekend of crafting, this week has been insanely busy with no time to photograph my projects or blog until now. All I can say is TGIF!

On to my project...this sweet pair of boys belong to me, I'm so blessed. I took this photo last fall for our Christmas cards. I paired it with some Spice Cake dsp and the stamp sets Autumn Abundance & Day of Gratitude. Instead of putting this right into an album, I have it displayed for Thanksgiving. I am attempting to make a new layout for each season/holiday to display in my house. I think it will help me to reach my scrapbooking goals for 2012, which I've talked about on StampNation. Myself, Catherine and some of the members are encouraging & supporting each other to get scrapping in 2012!!! Want to join us? It's an awesome time to join! Catherine has absolutely flooded the forum with Holiday projects, so many that I haven't gotten a chance to watch them all yet. I think it's creeping up to 120 videos in all! Wow!

Stamps: Autumn Abundance, Day of Gratitude
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper: Early Espresso, Pool Party, More Mustard, Spice Cake dsp
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Linen Thread

Two very handsome boys. You are blessed. I love the layout and your papers. That is a wonderful idea you have about showcasing the page during the holiday season. I need to get someone to kick me to get me back into scrapbooking also. I also said I would try to do at least one page every week starting 2012. Thanks for the info about Stamp Nation. I will go over there to check it out. Maybe I'll see you there.
