It is amazing to me what the internet and scrapbooking have brought to my life. A woman, whom I have never met in person, but who I would like to call a friend has issued a blog challenge over on Scrapshare.
This is the challenge as copied from Sherri's blog:
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
This month I challenge all of you, my blogging friends, to post a gratitude post daily. If possible, post a picture to go along with it! As an extra incentive, I will offer up something special for those of you that participate in this every day...I'll start counting from November 3rd since some of you may not see this until then. Everyone that participates daily starting no later than the 3rd will be entered in a drawing at the end of the month. Keep it simple or go all out! Comment and let me know if you're up for the challenge!
So I am going to take up the challenge as a personal one to update my blog daily with both something I am grateful for and with a tidbit of my life. I have not been faithful to my blog but I keep saying I want to do daily posts so here is the perfect opportunity.
Today I am grateful for having the ability to connect with people on such a personal level while having never met them IRL. I have so many friends across the world and I hope to someday meet some of them in person but the richness that they bring to my life just through the computer is amazing.
So what are you grateful for today?
Also, I wanted to share with you the layouts I created using the sketches from the Sketchapalooza II class I am taking. I posted the layout from the first sketch in my last post.
