Thankful For Challenge: Double the Layouts by Caroli

Hi there peps! How are you? Caroli here sharing my take of this Thankful Challenge we have this week at Doodlebug Design DT. 

I love this time of the year, it's already spring in my side of the world and this means I am happy for no reason, I can appreciate good things of life and feel thankful for them. Having this in mind, I made these two layouts just to express how thankful I am for the most important people in my life: my husband and kids.

For both layouts I used Cream & Sugar collection because I really can't get enough of it, it's so cute 

First one features my family on the last birthday of my love last month. We have just a few pics of the four of us together, and in this one we all are looking at the camera and not moving or making a silly face, so basically it is a MIRACLE! LOL! I loved this pic, so of course I had to use it asap.

I wrote a lot of journaling, as usual, expressing how lucky and thankful I feel for my family and for the current moment in my life. I thinks it's a good thing to do to write about happy times so this memories will help you going through hard times, when they come, don't you think?

I used a lot of embellies from the Odd & Ends package in this layout, and also some Doodle Pops and Shape Sprinkles. In opposite corners I created some embellishment clusters with them, they look cute 

I placed a diecut heart I cut with my Silhouette Cameo just to create more layers, because who doesn't love a lot of layers, uh?

For my title I used a yellow Abigail alpha, I love this new typography, it's cute and fresh! I combined it with some more words I cut withy Silhouette Cameo, the free font is Learning Curve.

My second layout features my two kids last summer while they were having fun at the pool. I can't express with words how thankful I am to have them, they are silly, crazy, and sometimes I just feel like sending to the orphanage (who hasn't, really?) but at the same time they are funny, lovely kids with a heart of gold, they certainly color my life like no one else and I thank everyday for having them with me ♥

In this layout I created some kind of embellishment cascade using lots of Odds&Ends, Doodle Pops and Shape Sprinkles. When it comes to embellishments, Doodlebug's are the best ones!

I used this card from the Oods & Ends to write my journaling, this time I didn't get crazy writing, haha!

I enjoy this challenge, it's good to have a reason to stop and think for a moment about good things in our life and for being thankful for them ♥ Hope this will inspire to create something now, have a great day!
