Wednesday Be Inspired

Happy Wednesday! You know what Wednesday's mean at my blog, a new challenge from Cuttlebug Challenge. This week's challenge is to make a gratitude or Thanksgiving project and use your Cuttlebug!

The DT got to play with a Teresa Collins Journal Kit - and the winner of this week's challenge will get a Teresa Collins kit of their own!

And this week we are having 2 Guest Designers! Teresa Collins and Jamie Harper! So be sure to tune in!

I just loved all the little elements of the kit. I used all Teresa Collins products plus my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots, Victoria, and Diamond Plate embossing folders. I also used Twine from Papertrey Ink.

I based my journal on people and things that I am blessed to have in my life.

Here's a picture of my journal:

This next page is a picture of Matt and I at an Abraham Lincoln museum. I paired it with the journaling prop "Things I Value Most":

This page is my Gracie girl just waking up! She loves to sleep and loves the bed even more:

Next up, pictures of me with my Papaw and cousin Jacob. If you notice, my hair is different in every picture:

I had to include my Jake, who I adopted and found on Petfinder:

This is a picture of my doggie Hitman, that passed away in 2007. I had him for 16 years! He was ancient in this picture:

And you know how I love outdoors, so I had to include this picture in my blessings book. We were biking in Virginia with some friends:

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into what I'm grateful for. Visit Cuttlebug Challenge to see the DT's amazing creations for the week!

And don't forget this week kicks off the start of Cuttlebug Challenge University! This week's lesson is Copics! Be sure to check out the awesome hints and techniques!

Your album came out great (I am going to attempt to make my first one ever this Friday at a crop - feeling worried about it)! I especially love the picture of Gracie! I giggle every time I catch my doggies doing something cute like yawning and such in a picture!
