No matter where you are in the world, there is always something to be thankful for.  As we are gearing up for Thanksgiving in North America, I thought I’d kick off the week with things to be thankful for, Gallery Standout style!

Things to be thankful for:

1.  Granddaughters.

Hello Autumn by conniemiles

Family is the heart and soul of many scrapbookers.  This tribute page to Connie’s granddaughter Autumn is stunning.  From the beautiful photography to the cascading clusters, it’s easy to fall in love with Autumn.

2.  Mushrooms.

Early Autumn 2 by Dunkie

I’m always on the hunt for mushrooms.  They play such a vital role in the cycle of life.  Since the fruiting bodies are picky, requiring the right humidity and temperature to pop, finding them is magical!  This page full of beautiful clusters with the mushroom focal point is magical too!  I especially like the cluster at the bottom of the page with the scarecrow.

3.  Historical Parks

Fort William by Mary-lynne

I am such a fan of living history museums and historical parks!  It’s amazing to think how people once lived.  Each museum and park pay tribute to the past and human culture.  I often find myself wondering who and how I would have been were I born in 1775 instead of 1975.

This layout is such a lovely tribute to Fort William.  And the use of the red flower is brilliant – the eyes keep bouncing from the red in the skirt to the flower.  What a great way to lead the eyes across the page.

4. Nighttime Magic

Nuit Magique by Migueline

The sun goes down and my brain turns off.  I wish I could be more cognizant at night – because the night is full of magic!  From the stars to the moon, to fireflies in the summer, to the owl’s hoot and crickets chirping – nuit magique!  This layout is pretty magical too!  It captures the essence of a lovely moon light night.

5.  A Beautiful Day

The Good Stuff by Pmjames

A beautiful day is always something to be thankful for.  And this layout makes my heart go pitter patter!  One thing I love about photography is that it makes us pause, even if for a moment.  And in that moment, observe the beauty that surrounds us.

6.   For Everyday Things

AJ Week 3 by Vickyday

Everyday Things can become so commonplace, that we forget how wonderful they actually are.  But that first cup of coffee in the morning and our digital scrapbooking communities, they are definitely things to be thankful for.


Wishing you a week full of light, love, and thankfulness!

Till next time,

Lisa (Armygrl)
