Gratitude Challenge – Simply Thankful

Is everyone ready for the final Gratitude challenge? For the this challenge, we are going to focus on Simply Thankful. Some examples might be an event in your life that changed how you look at things, someone in your life that just makes you happy or grateful, or something you see every day that just makes you appreciate life in general.

There is a freebie pack that comes with this challenge, YAY! Three members of our Creative Team created pages using the freebie pack:
First, is Debi’s heartfelt layout about her mother, who she recently lost this spring. It is a beautiful tribute. She used the template, but altered it to make space for journaling and used the Studio Double D Cluster to accent the page.

Next, is Carol’s adorable layout about her husband and their kitty. Being a cat lover, I can appreciate this page for a multitude of reasons! Carol also used the template, and also changed it up a bit to fit her photos, and used the brown card stock paper freebie.
