Showing Gratitude

As important as it is to feel gratitude and even to express our gratitude, I think it is important to show our gratitude.  This isn't always easy, and I know for me, becomes one of those things that I put off-thinking I will do it later.  I always have good intentions that sometimes don't get followed through with!  So, today, in honor of our prompt, I'm going to change that.  I'm going to think today, about 3 ways I can show my gratitude and I'm going to do it.  I'll report back once I've finished!

Yesterday was our Thanksgiving Dress Rehearsal.  It was our first year doing it, but my hubby and kids were very quick to say they want it to become a tradition!   The idea started with me wanting to try some recipes that are gluten free for next week.  I've never made a good gluten free pie or stuffing.  I had bought a turkey, on sale, last week, so I decided to make a whole meal-from scratch-to see how it would go.  It turned out so yummy, but dang, it was a lot of work!  Usually, I do some of the prep work for Thanksgiving dinner on the day before, but doing it all in the same day was exhausting!  But I'm happy to report that the pie turned out perfect!  We were all happy!  I haven't eaten pie in almost 3 years, so it really tasted good!

Here is your template for today!

Today's Prompt:  what are 3 ways I can better show my gratitude?

I also want to take a moment and thank you all for your comments!  I have so much fun reading them every day!  I'm so happy to know that you are enjoying these templates and that they are helping your scrapping skills!  This is exactly what I was hoping for!  I'm also in the planning stages of doing video tutorials so that anyone-even if they've never digitally scrapped before-can learn how to do so!  I'm hoping to get the first one posted soon!

Have a great day!

I struggle with adding papers, so many designers add gorgeous patterned papers and I tend to scrap with them as I would have in the days that I paper scrapped, when dimension was a concern for me. I love the additional spots you have for me to include extra layers and patterned paper. Thanks.
PS, if you're ever looking for ct members, let me know? I would love to be on a design team for a template creator.
