Grace Journal

Hello my friends, hope you first day of December is going well.  Although I can't believe that it is December and Christmas is right around the corner!!!  Yikes!  I have not decorated at all yet, I like to let Thanksgiving and November to get by first. lol  So now I guess I will get on it.  My project today is a Grace Journal, now I know you all are asking what the heck is a grace journal. Well it is going to be a journal that I will write in every day.  Everyday I will list three things that I am grateful/thankful for.  It is for people who live with medical problems to help keep us from getting depressed because we still have so much to be grateful for.  You can read more HERE.

I used a premade notebook and just covered it with papers that I printed with the Imagine.  I used Imagine Cards and more for the front cover and the inside of my front/back cover.  I used the green on the inside as well.  The butterflies look washed out, but they are that same green as the border and a pretty blue.  I used scrap vinyl for the title and my name, thought that would hold up a little better than cardstock lettering, but cardstock can be used instead.

On the back cover I used paper printed from my Imagine using the cart Best Friends.
I hope that you think about doing a Grace Journal, it can be so good for the soul!!  Have a happy one my friends!!

I love your custom made Grace Journal Brenda. I am glad to have you doing it with me. There is no lack of things to be grateful for. I hope more will join us. It can benefit anyone, especially in this materialistic world where it seems we never have enough. It shows us just how much we really do have, doesn't it?

Thanks Leslie, I know I have many, many things to be greatful about!! I also like that this can be in my stuff to hand down to my guys to read one day and maybe they will catch on and do it too or someone in their family will.

It is nice to write down all that we are thankful for, it really boosts the moral and makes one realize all that they have. I know it will be good for me!!
