The challenge for the Documented Life Project for week 23 was to: “Practice gratitude – write what you are grateful for each day this week.”
After the month of kids and grandkids (see post) we are behind a few weeks on the challenges and finally catching up. The week this challenge was issued was the week my 6th grandbaby was born, so gratitude for my family was the highlight of that week. I chose to make a paper banner saying “GRATITUDE” on my page. I cut some triangles for my banner from photos in a magazine ad of kitchen towels and glued them to triangle shaped card stock. On top of a gelli printed page, I wrote in pencil several verses that were on the topic of gratitude and thankfulness. I glued my banner on top of that and machine stitched across the top of the banner. To finish the page, I glued several word strips cut from magazines.
Melinda:Baby Boy was born the day after this challenge was posted on DLP on June 1.
I wanted to do my page to remind me of the birth. I was so grateful for so many things that week. I gelli printed a piece of paper with a tree to represent life and used colors to remind me of the placenta that sustained my baby for 9 months.
