*Attitude of Gratitude - Day Six* :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Today is Day Six of Tessa's *Attitude of Gratitude* challenge! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Today...I am grateful for this word I got while visiting a blog earlier this a part of the blog's word verification process :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 

 I mean...come on...who doesn't LOVE a little "inspo" (inspiration!) when visiting someone?!?!??!! *pure love* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to share....Jillibean Soup has partnered with Scrapbook Circle to give away one of the Scrapbook Circle November kits. This kit is chock full of great Jillibean corrugated shapes, sprouts and a sheet of paper!!! :):):):):):):):):):):) If you'd like a chance to win the kit, head on over to the Jillibean Soup blog and leave a comment! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here is a lo I made with some of the Jillibean items in the November kit from! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Also I wanted to share some happy mail that Brookie got!!! She is doing a little better each day...I want to thank all that have said prayers for her and Adam recently... it is GREATLY appreciated! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The first one is from li-bee-ti!!! Brookie got this the day before she went to the hospital for her laser surgery! :):):):):):):):):) Thanks sooooooooo much li-bee-ti!!!!!! She LOVES it...and she all ready made a LO with the stickers you sent! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is the LO Brookie made! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today, she got the most BEAUTIFUL canvas from Mel!!! Thanks Mel!! Shes loves it sooooooooo much and can't wait for Daddy to hang it up for her! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 As you can see, she is still a little swollen...but still SMILING! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today is my VERY FIRST craft sale... keep your fingers crossed for me! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  1. Aaaahhh, yes, I bump on to those "happy words" once in a while... they really make you smile! LOVE all the goodness and happy layouts in this post! Brookie has a way of smiling that makes ME smile too! Have a nice weekend my friend!!! (Oh, and if I was a milionair, I would definitely send you a plane ticket to come visit the Dutch scrapbook-girls too... we will think of you when we are together as "blog-scrap-gals")

  2. Totally agree with the "inspo", I know I can use plenty from time to time...
    Brookie is such a courageous little girl, indeed swollen but smiling. My heart goes out to her and all of you. And she's turning out to be quite a little artist as well, isn't she??? Her LO is gorgeous!!! And so is yours, so simple yet elegant, just perfect for a little princess picture!
    We all have so much to be grateful for, and I'm so loving your daily entries. They're a reminder of how big the little things can be...
    Love xxx Peggy

    What a beautiful share today. You are so talented. If I could just have 1 little inkling of that talent, I would be so happy.

    Oh poor Brookie, first with her tonsils and now another laser surgery. God Bless her little heart. Please tell her Aunt Sherry sends her love. And sweetie, I will definitely be adding Adam to my prayers. A suicide is always hard to understand, so I can imagine the feelings he has going through him at this time. Always hard to accept.
