There's a new Issue up over at Paper Issues, and this months theme, "Let Me Espresso My Gratitude" has many fun ideas to get you started on a project. Not only Thanksgiving, and things you are thankful for, but also coffee or your favorite beverage using coffee themed embellishments or stamps. There are also super cute free printables in the Paper Issues store that would be perfect for your layouts or cards too. Why not play along, you could win a $20 gift card to the Paper Issues store!
I went with the gratitude idea, and made this layout using an old black and white photo of my grandparents, two people that I am very grateful I had in my life.
I've you've been to my blog before, you probably know I love old photos. I'm fortunate that both sides of our family tree have taken lots of photos through the years. This old black and white works beautifully with the new Shine collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper, and Cedar Lane by Pink Paislee. Both are favorites in the fall releases this year!
Well, happy Monday friends, and don't forget to stop by Paper Issues for your free printable, and if you use code Mary Ann in the store, you can receive 20% off your order!!
