Who I'm Thankful For


I did this LO for 3 different challenges! I followed My Little Shoebox's blog hop (http://www.mylittleshoebox.typepad.com/) today and the requirement for the LO had to be something or someone you are thankful for. The title of my LO is I'M THANKFUL FOR... I used Close To My Heart Storytime Caps for the title and CTMH All You Need- "Brother" and "father" stamps at the bottom of the page. The journaling is on the left hand side on the blue and green paper strip. I wrote that "Tyler is a miracle from God. He just turned 3. He is 16 months in the professional pic. I'm not sure how old he is in the other pic. The pic of Daddy sitting in the couch was taken at Grandmama James' house. The smaller pic of Daddy is either his Sr pic or taken at ACC (Atlanta Christian College)." Tyler is a miracle, because Tammy, my stepmom was told by doctors that she could never have children. The main background is Basic Grey Oliver Collection. I put a little brad in the right hand corner just to fill in the blank space! My computer screen is a little dark so you might be able to see it where I can't. The sketch is from Let's Capture These Sketches (http://letscapturethesesketches.blogspot.com/2010/11/sketch-63.html) and the challenge on that site is to use only patterned paper on your LO. I'm also using this LO for a trees challenge with Scrappin'-n'-Chattin (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrappin-n-chattin/). The smaller pic of my dad is attached to a tree patterned paper. The challenge was to add trees to your LO and not be pictures of trees. What I'm trying to say in this LO is that I'm thankful for my brother and my dad! I can't wait to see them on Sunday and show them this LO! Have a great weekend!!
