My Thankful for Fall Project



We are so very thankful for this new little one joining our family.
This is Erik, and he is our newest grandson. He was born almost a month ago. Our daughter miscarried her baby before Erik, so you can imagine how thankful we are that he is here, healthy, and part of our family.

For my project I used the Close To My Heart, Swan Lake Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kit (and the FREE download guide). I love how it turned out!  I also added a couple of Cricut cuts (because I love my Cricut). 

The Farmer Teddy and Superhero are both from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge. I still have some journaling to add, but other than that, these pages are done. And they were super easy to pull together.

THANKFUL FOR YOU PRIZE

One person who is a FOLLWER of my blog and leaves a COMMENT on this post

The winner for my prize will be announced here on my blog

  18. First off Janis, Erik is adorable and what a blessing! We, too, had a miscarriage before our daughter was born. I know the pain associated with your families loss, but also understand the extreme joy and thankfulness of having a beautiful healthy child! We both have so much to be thankful for this season! Your scrapbook layout is just lovely! Your grandson, like my daughter, will have many scrapbooks to cherish for years to come! Thanks for the inspiration and for the opportunity to win! Congratulations!

  40. Hey Janis! Wow, what a sweetheart he is!! I can imagine how you are all so very thankful for this little miracle! Babies are just that, miracles and they are very precious! I wish your daughter and lot of luck with this cutie pie and pray that her hurt from the miscarriage has been buried down deep by the birth of little Erik. I had a miscarriage years ago so I also know that pain. Your layout is so sweet and so beautiful and the photos you chose to use show little Erik so content, at peace. I love the design of the layout and I think you did a great job! Have a great weekend!
