so very thankful....

I feel so blessed for many reasons...my family, life-long friends, ability to pursue my "art" and much more...life is good! Recently the DT members of the Melissa Frances team were asked to create some items for the Scrap Pink event for Better Homes and Gardens coming this September. Scrapbooks, Etc. is hosting an on-site crop (at your local LSS's) to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure® breast cancer foundation! Melissa Frances has created a line of papers called "Thankful" and is donating part of the procedes to breastcancer.org. Here is a little mini album/box that I created with this line for the event, pictures are of my little Kati from this past spring.
I used a ton of MF products here, including the Thankful papers (which are sooo beautiful in person, but difficult to photograph!), glitter chipboard, stamps, rub on sayings, stickers, lace and buttons.
So thankful for this sweet girl!
I covered the chipboard accordian album with the papers and painted the edges with white paint.
Daddy and Kati playing in the yard one day! Love this shot! I stamped the background with the frame before adding the photo.

If your LSS is planning to host this event, you can request this project to be taught at your store! Hope you are having a terrific start to your week! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

What a beautiful project. Your work is wonderful. So the little album is stored in the box? Did you make the box and album from scratch?

I love how you stamped the frame on some of the pages. The paper colors are so pretty. I will have to keep an eye out for this line.
