2013 Gratitude Journal - Week 5

What a great feeling to have completed one month of gratitude creations!

My home has had such a quiet week ... which is wonderful (with autism and a mental health illness, quiet, unstressful times are few.  With new specialists and medications, and a new support net in place, it has definitely been a week of blessings, and gratitude is in abundance!

So perhaps that is why in my excitement, I had created this week's gratitude journal creation using the scripture for NEXT week instead of this week!  I should have used Ephesians 5:20, but instead, I used 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8.  At least I am still thankful that my creation was completed on time!

I have  adjusted my blogposts, so this post has the correct creation ... the creation you initially saw in this post is now in it's rightful place in the Week 6 post! read on!   

In creating my fifth page to my gratitude journal, I used a digi text I made, using the week's scripture, Ephesians 5:20, from the New Life Version of the Bible.  I think it is beautifully translated, and so clear!

 I adore the vintage style images from Create with TLC... so here is another... who could resist this little fellow! It reminded me of a picture from a Golden Book... I had so many of them as a child!

I created my 8x8 page with a boy-ish theme.  I coloured the image with markers and a water pen, adding chalks to continue the background (still having that picture book idea in my head).  I didn't want to overdress with embellishments, so I've chosen a simple photo-style layout... creating photocorners with left over pices from the card used as the basepage, and the image matt.  It looked a little plain, so I added some green pearls to the mock photo corners....

As well as linking this into the hosted challenge at Inspired Stamps (thank you Antoinette!) ....thanks for peepin'!
