A Layout? Me?

Hi folks! I hope you're doing well! It's been a little crazy around here, as the holiday activities have already started up! However, I have a project to share with you--and yes, you read right! I DID a scrapbook page!! Although I LOVE scrapbooking (it was my first love in paper crafting), I just don't get to do it often because of so many other things in my schedule. You know the deal--lots of ideas, not enough time! Sometimes motivation and wondering how to get started play a role too. However, I plan on doing more scrapping in 2012, and wanted to get started a little early with this layout:

Dies: Quickutz Marisa and Blossom Mini

I scraplifted this layout from one done by dorito6778 over on 2Peas. I love how she captured what she was grateful for during the whole month of November. I also loved how she used the small pictures of big and small things she was thankful for in her daily life. The title was inspired by a song I grew up singing in church. Sorry for it being out of focus...I have to get used to photographing scrapbook pages. Here's a closer view of the pics and journaling:

I love the papers and embellishments used in the inspiration layout! I wish I had something similar, but I did use some papers from my stash. I'm thinking about possibly adding another photo and a date card too. What do you think? I'd love to hear what your thoughts...So if you're low on inspiration, check out other layouts and sketches, or even music titles. They are all great sources of ideas! What do you do/use when you're stumped or unmotivated to scrap?

Before I go, I want to thank dorito for sharing her page over in the 2Peas gallery! It definitely inspired me to scrap --something I haven't done in a long time. I may even make a page like this an annual thing! It was cool to write down my gratitude list, and reflect over the last month. Well, that's all I have for now! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek...And That's All She Wrote!
