On Remembrance Day (11th November), a friend posted a challenge on Facebook for us to all add to our status each day, one thing for which we are thankful, and to see if we have enough things to take us to Thanksgiving (26th November).

Well, being one who can't resist a challenge, I've started posting. So far I've had:-

  • thankful that I have two happy, healthy children
  • thankful that I have a wonderful Mum, without whom I would have fallen apart years ago

Then I got to thinking - yes, I know that's dangerous, especially for me LOL. But, I realised it would be so easy to combine this challenge with my scrapbooking - so, I'm going to start a Thanksgiving Album. I know it's going to take me a lot longer than 15 days to complete, but those first 15 posts will help me to get started. My aim is to complete a layout each week, based on my 'Today I'm Thankful For' post. Who knows, I may even carry it on .........

Watch this space for the first layout which I'm planning on completing during the UKScrappers Wicked Cyber Crop this weekend. I can't wait - a whole weekend of scrapping without the boys!! Now that's heaven on earth :D

I started doing this on my blog (based on a post by Molly Irwin) and I've decided to make a mini album based on my entries and photos as well as those of my kids. I'll put a link to your blog (if you don't mind) tomorrow when I do my next gratitude post. : )

I think this is a really great idea. It's along the lines of a gratitude journal. I can't wait to see your layout.

I finally linked to your blog. Tried yesterday but then my computer crashed, so now it should be up as soon as it is through publishing! : )
