Thankful - Papercrafting Thanks (layout 146)

Papercrafter's Corner has come up with a new feature on Thursday (in addition to throw-back Thursday) - Thanful Thursdays & The Be Thankful Project.

Lots of ideas for documenting and sharing what each of us (you included!) are thankful for.
Think papercrafting projects such as Thank You cardslayouts about what and who you’re thankful for, art journaling featuring quotes about being thankful, mixed media projects featuring items and products you’re thankful for, capturing what you’re thankful for through the lens of your camera or phone, and a whole lot more!

How can you participate?
By sharing what you’re thankful for each week. Simple, right?
Whether you choose to do some papercrafting to share what you’re thankful for, or you simply want to leave a comment, or just read the comments and view the papercrafting projects created by others, we invite you to partake in what we hope will be a hugely positive life experience.

This got me thinking of what I was helpful for. First thing I thought of was all our wonderful friends and family who are always there to help. I was all set to do a layout about one of our friends' (steve) when I was reading on a rant&rave about a friend's sister whose children have not yet met their grandmother and she was fundraising to make the 8 hour journey so they could meet. This got me thinking about how i take our ability to go home for granted. . .okay maybe granted isn't the right word but flying home or going home is just something i've never thought about being a road-block. I moved 13 hours away back in 1999 and have moved around alberta multiple times since that time; however, I have always come home for Christmas. I am thankful for the ability that I am always able to spend Christmas with my family:

Supplies used:
papers: DCWV (the winter holiday stack)
journaling block: bo bunny (mistletoe note worthy)
stickers: unknown
wreath: k&company
airplane: A2Z scraplets (painted in tim holtz distress paint salty ocean)
word bubble: studio calico (painted in tim holtz distress paint festive berries)
alphas: crate paper

Thank you for stopping by and hope you can all play along on Thankful Thursdays, see you next week:
