Hi, Erika Hayes here. I’m one of the moderators over at Club CK (Creating Keepsakes’ free online community of scrapbookers). I’m wondering, how has your day been so far? Did you have a great cup of coffee or tea this morning? Did you have a chance to squeeze in a little reading on your favorite blog today? Of course you did!
I try very hard to count my blessings every day. What I consider one of the biggest blessings in my life is being a scrapbooker. I mean that! I love how the scrapbook community embraces each other and shares our lives together. It is amazing, and I think it’s brilliant that scrapbookers just understand each other in a special way. Our unique and supportive community at Club CK inspired me to begin a series of challenges. This new monthly challenge series is to recognize the blessings in your life, and to scrapbook a life of Thanks Living.
Each month we will regularly jot down our daily blessings–a few simple words you will use to create beautiful layouts to document the wonderfulness that is your life! You can add your daily blessings to this week’s post on Club CK, or can keep a private list if you’d prefer.
The Thanks Living challenges are posted monthly at Club CK. Additionally, if you crave more information on how to design great layouts, the Thanks Living challenges may be the sweet treat you are looking for. Along with a great challenge, there will be a mini lesson on design each month. For example, this month we are focusing on the way to use various kinds of “lines” in your scrapbooking. All challenge and blessings threads will always be located in the Scraptivities Forum.
As a special treat, we also have a free download of journaling spots, accents, and titles you can use on your scrapbook layouts.
