My Book of Gratitude- Pion Design

I made another project for the Pion Design Blog. This time its a mini-album called “My Book of Gratitude”
I’m keeping this book beside my bed so I can write in it about all the things I’m thankful for in this life.
I’ve left it blank at the moment as I didn’t want to share my innermost feelings here in Public. 
I used the  Alma’s Sewing Room collection for this project because I love the rich purple tones. This eggplant like hue is absolutely gorgeous.
I used quite a few chipboard pieces from my 2 Crafty stash. I simply inked them in either Dark Purple ink or a light pastel purple I recently got from Prima. I have all the chipboard pieces listed at the bottom of the post.
The large flower is from Joann’s Fabrics and the smaller ones are Prima. 

The mini-album I used was a funky Kaisercraft MDF book. It assembles in a very special manner which really appealed to me.

I’m keeping it besides my bed so I can re-read what I’m thankful for each and every day.
As you can see, I’ve left a lot of blank space for writing. It is almost like a journal as I want to be able to add many thankful entries in this book as time passes. Once I fill it up, I will make another one.

I decorated the rings with lots of purple ribbons I found in my stash.

    What a great idea, Keren, and such a beautiful book! I need to remember that there is always something every day I can list to be grateful for, even on my most stressful or bad day! I might have to start a journal myself, though I am slightly intimidated by minis, so mine will be a regular journal notebook, lol!!

    This is a wonderful little album and I absolutely love the idea of it! I used to have one where I wrote one positive thing that had happened to me every day, but this is possibly even better. Thank you for the inspiration!

I think we are all soooo thankful for bloggy scrappy friends. They 'get' us, yes??? And what a MARVELLOUS idea – especially to look back on when times are a bit tough… your design elements – & the different 'spaces' you've left to write in:):):)
