Gratitude Page

The task this week for The Documented Life Project was to: Practice Gratitude; write down what you are grateful for each day this week. I'll be doing that as the week progresses but the first thing I was grateful for was that I took a Polaroid picture in our courtyard on Saturday when the sun was shining and all was well with the world. I was sitting outside having a cup of tea when I looked around and thought how wonderful it was all looking with the fresh greenery and the flowering rhododendron and the tulips.
I grabbed my Polaroid camera, took the picture and added one of the border treatments this modern day digital version of the Polaroid camera has to offer and printed it out. So when the Gratitude prompt came up later that day I was completely ready for it. I layered the picture with a piece of vintage text and sewed it on to a very suitable looking gelli plate print which I discovered in my stash.
I made it using a wide variety of leaf stencils and it went so well with the picture. I added stamping and some pieces of washi tape in a suitable colour.
The page will forever remind me of a special moment on a Saturday in May 2014 that I'm very grateful for.

Oh gorgeous! Your gratitude page is vibrant and full of life. Your courtyard looks so lovely with all the greenery and blooms! Yay! You must be in heaven now.
Happy June to you dear Frieda. I am sorry I have been away from my computer much lately. But I always love coming by to visit you.
Hugs,
Terri
