I switched things up a bit last year, took a cue from Cathy Zielske and created a mini album based on individual photos and written responses to the ever looming "gratitude question" at the dinner table. This approach was met with little resistance and I loved the end result. So much so, that I decided to do another Gratitude Mini this year but with a new twist.

Canvas Buttons, Irresistibles Lettering, and Inks by CTMH
|I used the top of one of the treat boxes to make the title page. I added just one journal page. |
The rest of the pockets contain 4x6 photos. Individual photos along with various candid shots from our day.
This was really, really fun and super easy! The whole point here is to DOCUMENT and keep the album SIMPLE. I gave myself one hour to pull supplies together, decorate the cover, make the title page, and write a short intro. It's not fancy but it is fun! It gets done right away and is ready to be passed around at every Thanksgiving for years to come!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Wishing you and yours a Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, and peace.
