Thankful For You! (Scrapbook Saturday)
What blessings are you the most thankful for in your life? With Thanksgiving coming up here in the United States, this is a topic that is without a doubt on many of our minds! For today's "Scrapbook Saturday" share, designer Melissa Craig shares something that she is incredibly thankful for -- her three children! As you can see in this sweet photo, Melissa's "little ones" still love to climb into her bed to snuggle -- even if they aren't so little these days. That doesn't leave much room, of course, for Melissa herself, but does that matter to her? Nope, not really -- not if it means quality snuggle time with her kids, and a precious photo to boot! Such is the way with moms. Our little ones grow far too quickly, so we snatch up every little moment like this we can get, hold them in our hearts, and thank God every day for them.
To frame this cherished photo, Melissa created a beautiful layout using elements from our "Leave Me Smiling" digi set. The paper ribbons and the leaves in the sentiment add just a touch of rich Fall color to accent the neutral background of this page. The creamy base, combined with the faux stitching, brings to mind a comfy old quilt, don't you think? What could be more perfect a cool Fall day of snuggling with the loves of your life, or for framing the memories of that time together? :-)
