Give Thanks Unto the Lord! (BBTB Contest)
I know I'm just sliding under the wire, but I couldn't resist entering the BBTB contest when I saw the theme was giving thanks. I have taken a challenge this month to blog every day about something I'm thankful for (you can see my entries on our family blog), and I am really feeling so grateful for all the big and little blessings in my life! I thought immediately of our new family pictures and that this scripture said perfectly how blessed I feel to have my wonderful family: "O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever." (Psalms 136:1)
I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge for all the die-cuts. The felt pieces are from Fancy Pants, and the buttons are from Sassafrass Lass (review on these beauties coming soon!). I also used a Bazzill "In Stitch'z" template for the hand-stitched flourishes. The paper is from Scrapworks. I hope you'll excuse the bad pictures of the layout -- there was not a lot of natural light at 10:30 pm. :) TFL!
