Give Thanks Layouts

October has come to an end and now we all begin to think of all the wonderful things we have to be thankful for!

In order to celebrate this month of gratitude, the theme this week is "GIVE THANKS".  Each day this week we will share one thing we are thankful for here at BoBunny.

We are especially thankful for YOU! The wonderful readers of our blog,

The design team has been given a challenge this week to add into their layouts a special item.  See if you can guess what it is! You can find the answer in their "BoBunny Supplies List"

Count Your Blessings - Denise van Deventer

Autumn Time is also harvest time and for me this is always the time to take stock of my life and give thanks for the many blessings in my life. I can honestly say that I am truly blessed and really have nothing to complain about. These 5 kids are certainly blessings and add so much colour to my life and world! That little cheesy grin in the front is most certainly one of my greatest blessings too!

This layout has a Bohemian feel to it. It was not intended that way, but just turned out that way!

I love the earthy Kraft collection and so used quite a few of these elements on my page. The clock paper behind my photo is actually a gift bag and I thought it would be perfect for a patterned paper use, as well as a holder for my journalling. So I have a little note tucked inside for safe keeping!

Count Your Blessings - Lisa Gregory

I am blessed to have a wonderful family. My mom and dad raised 4 successful children, and we all have wonderful families of our on now.

I toned down the yellow BoBunny Blossoms using some autumn colored mists. To create the leaves, I die cut them from double dots paper and patterned paper and enhanced them with mists as well. I tucked a couple of Kraft butterflies on the page.

I cut apart one of the Kraft bags, tore them into strips and randomly adhered them on the page. I also punched strips for the outer border and created a Kraft lace. I cut a piece of burlap from the trim, and placed it under the journal banner I made. And I used the wonderful Kraft Alphabet stamps to stamp the word Family in 2 places.
