30 Days of Thankful Day 1-14

November brings Thanksgiving and a time of thankfulness.  This year I participated with a group of ladies to do "30 Days of Thankfulness."  Some did 12 x 12 scrapbook pages and others did small albums.  I chose to supplement my pages into my Project Life. 

Today I will be showing Day 1-14.   Each day you pick something or someone you are thankful for.  That was the easy part! It was what order that was the hardest. :-)

I used the kit Sweater Weather from Simple Stories.  It has beautiful fall colors and cards inserts that matched my thankful theme perfectly.  I also accented with gold foil and glitter paper.

I have so many things to be thankful for.  It was really hard to pick one thing a day. And using Project Life inserts, I was able to get a lot more pictures per page.  I am really happy with that.
Look for the next few days soon!

Baby Girl Binder Ring Mini Album

Recently I have found a fondness for mini albums. I love how you can personalize and make them so unique to you.   This is my second mini album, but my first with binder rings.

This mini album was personalized for a new baby.......

 Pretty ribbon and a mini album charm added a girly touch......

 Each page had pre-cut mats for 4 x 6 pictures.....

The pages will spell out "BABY" by the end......

I also put flip up pages so that more pictures could be added.....

 Cute polka dots......

Making a mini album is a perfect gift for any occasion!

See the mini album up close!

There are times that life's situations make you feel hopeless.   The weight is heavy and you except the lie that there is no hope and you give in to that belief.  Last night I was reading blogs and one of my favorite bloggers Shanna Noel had a post that was perfect.  It is amazing the way that God speaks to you.  What?!? You feel hopeless? Lets be real....yes, I am human and at times situations get me down.  But I know who my hope comes from.

And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.  Psalms 39:7

Full Screen: Hope is Here

God is our hope.....

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.  Romans 15:13

Yes, at times we feel hopeless, but we have to put our trust in the Lord and trust that in his time what we hope for will be there.

Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. Jeremiah 17:7

Trust God and believe and trust that he will take care of the situation for you.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.   Jeremiah 29:11
