DT choice – Being Thankful

By Neela Nalam

October 2, 2016

Hi everyone! This is Neela here with my DT choice layout. Days and years go by and it is easy to look at what we don’t have or what is not working right. But I want to make it a habit to list out all the good things that happen and all the things that I already have and be thankful for them. I have never consciously done this in my life. But I realize now that one of the ways I have been unconsciously doing this is by scrapbooking all the wonderful moments and writing about them. Using scrapbooking as a medium, I want to consciously do this more often.

For this layout I used one of my favorite techniques Рusing a large photo. The photo is that of my son and myself doing a hike at our vacation in Maui. I am so grateful for this photo that my husband took. It evoked so many emotions in me Рhow much my son has grown, how beautiful was that location, how amazing was our vacation and how awesome it is to spend time with the family. I tried to capture a little bit of that with my journaling.

Those crate paper gather stickers are so awesome. They have the most beautiful designs and colors. I felt that the words – sweet and capture were so good for the title. I used some other phrase stickers and hearts for the top right and bottom left. The simple stories reset girl papers are awesome too. I cut out the flowers from some of them and backed the photo with some of the papers. I also cut out arrows from the amy tan paper. I typed my journaling on the reset girl paper and cut it out into strips so that I could fit it in after all the other embellishments were added. Here is the layout:
