From the November/December 2008 issue of Simple Scrapbooks, I decided to try the "Gratitude" Album for this month.I bought this cute little album at Target. It is a 4x6 horizontal orientation photo album with enough sleeves for up to 100 photos. Since I'm planning to use 2 pages per day, I would have some leftover space at the end, but I saved about 12 pages for Thanksgiving to add everyone else's thoughts on gratitude and photos of our family gathering. I downloaded Cathy Z.'s template for the jounaling from simplescrapbooksmag.com
But it wasn't quite right for the Fall colors I wanted to use, so I set to work altering the cover - removed the pink ribbon, painted with Making Memories "meadow" acrylic paint, added rub-on letters, some old stickers, and new piece of ribbon and voila! What do you think?
