Challenge #15 & #16 in the Rose Blossom Garden

A Fall Gratitude Journal
This is the time of the year that I make my annual gratitude journal. 
I wanted to use my favorite paper pack, Frosted, for this project.
 I used the leaves and the title from the "B" key of the Cricut Artbooking booklet.
To customize a spiral notebook just remove the spiral from the notebook and 
cover with your favorite paper pack. Embellish according to your theme.
Inside the journal is a pocket to save any notes to go with your thoughts.
Be sure to check out the great projects at Rose Blossom Garden 
for more Fall and Thanksgiving inspiration.

The challenge this week at Color My Heart is to use black and white 
with a green of your choice. My favorite green to go

using Sweet Leaf 5.5 inches. 
For the black and white part I used the 
B&T Duos "For Always"
