So Thankful

Have you been following my friend Tessa's "Attitude of Gratitude" series? So powerful!

That's sort of how our life has been going lately.. rainy. But, still  so much to be thankful for. Starting first, with my hubby Dave. We just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.

He is a constant source of support, comfort, and sunshine on my rainy days. I had to create a layout to show my thanks and appreciation for him.

(click to view larger)

I used the luscious, traditional colors of fall from the Bo Bunny "Forever Fall" collection (available at AWDML 25% off through November!).

I love the texture the burlap adds (a gift from my friend Theresa.. thanks!).  

I cut those realistic leaves from patterned paper and cardstock from the same collection using the silhouettes on the A Child's Year cricut cartridge. I embellished the leaf mat with my Martha Stewart "doily lace" punch, too.


The wood alphas are my *favorite* new product.. available from Pink Paislee. I dressed them up with some gold pearls. 

Thanks for visiting today! If you aren't already, I'd love if you became a follower. I'll be having a giveaway soon (I'm close to 500 followers!)

I'm sharing this layout with:
