Welcome to the October Crafty Secrets Linky Challenge and Blog Hop. Our theme this month is Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart. The design team was challenged to create a Thanksgiving themed project or a project that expresses thankfulness and gratitude. We hope you will join us for the hop, and then visit the Crafty Secrets BLOG where you can find a free download and details for entering the challenge yourself.
For my project I did more of an "idea" then a tutorial!
My idea was to make a Thanksgiving Journal with all my
18 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren names listed
in order by age on a separate page for each..
Then the fun part!
To ask each child the question "What is Thanksgiving"
I thought the answers would be entertaining
and I would date each page with the year
and ask the same question each year.
I think it will be fun to hear the answers
and how they differ from year to year as they grow.
What a great new tradition to pass down to the family!
The Crafty Secrets papers I used to cover my journal with
were all scrap pieces from previous projects using
I also used images from Autumn Blessings Heartwarming Vintage Cuts.
I finished by adding a few die cut leaves and a little wooden house.
Here is the list of the hop in order....all links are here in case you get lost along the way.
