November is the month to "give thanks". Although I think for the most part we give thanks all year long, but a month or even just the week of Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on what we give thanks for. It's a reminder to focus on the everyday and take pride in what we do and what we have.
I am focusing on being thankful for "Home". I took a walk around our yard and captured a few of the things that represent our home right now.
As the journaling reads : " HOME. I am forever thankful for our home. Not just the house we live in, but the land we live on. The land we are blessed to raise our animals on & the dirt we grow our food in. I’m thankful for the wood that heats our home & the hard work that goes into it. I’m thankful for waking up here every morning & the warm sun glowing over us as we call it a day. Live is good. It really, really is. "
The layout design begins with a simple grid of those photos on a white background.
I then brought in a few of the paper pad pieces from the Digital IF Basics collections to create a border on both sides.
Next up, the title work. My favorite part of designing a page. This alphabet comes from the digital IF Bright & Brave Collection.
Onto embellishing and layering!
And of course finished up with journaling.
