Posts Tagged ‘7G’

I realise that:

We haven’t seen the last of the cold weather

We are in the deep, dark throes of winter

Longing for spring is wishful thinking

The fruit trees need the cold weather to flower and bear fruit again

We haven’t seen the end of the flu season…

But winter solstice has come and gone and I am overjoyed by the thought that we are looking at the last few weeks of winter 😉

Keeping my thoughts positive helps to distract me from the winter blues and that is why I chose the ‘T is for Top Ten’ 97% complete sticker form 7G as the theme for my layout this week.

I selected the Winterland collection from Fancy Pants to use with the 7G stickers and scrapped to my heart’s content.

Tags from different papers fill two envelopes on the right page and more tags peep from under the matt of the main picture on the left page.

The only other embellishments I used on the page are ribbon from Fancy Pants and two paper clips on the main picture.

After I had finished my layout the sun was shining right into my heart again and I realised that I have an awful lot in my life to be grateful for.

I am grateful for:

A roof over my head

A warm bed to sleep in

A family to share cozy winter evenings in front of the fireplace with

Warm food to banish the winter cold from my body and soul

Enough warm clothes to wear each day

Good friends to share my hobby with

All the blessings I receive without even asking…

So, let us not allow the winter blues to drag us down – let’s rather concentrate on the good things and gather in high spirits on Saturday to scrap together 🙂
