I am Thankful For...

I have a great many things for which to be thankful this year, as I do every year. And this year I wanted a place to journal all my thoughts and feelings about the past year. I wanted a place to journal my gratitude to the Lord for blessing me with this life and this family and this talent. All things come from Him, and I feel that truth very deeply this year.

So, when I saw the MOSD Cover to Cover Steps Album, I had a fantastic idea for a way to use my artistic talent, my abundant supplies, and my love of stories to create a treasure. This album has two 5.5x7.5 clear covers, and eight chipboard pages from 5.5x4 to 5.5x7.5. There are lots of places for me to journal my thoughts, feelings, and stories. This album is NOT for photos...it's just for words. Which is great...since I always have a LOT to say!


I also used a number of hybrid products in this album: transparencies and clear stickers printed from my computer (with thanks to Heidi Swapp and Rhonna Ferrar), cardstock journaling blocks, plus lots of stamps, tags, bits of ribbon, and odds and ends. I continue on my mission to "use up my stash" and you can see that this album uses a ton of product!












As you can see, I bound this album with my Bind-it-All tool and a black O-wire. The Bind-it-All is a wonderful companion product to the MOSD albums!

Now, to find my favorite journaling pens and get to work filling this creative journal with my thoughts! Thanks for looking!
