Gratitude Mini Album

Do you "do" Black Friday?  I am not sure the sales are worth the hassle!  I would love to hear the deals you've scored (past or present).
When I posed my gratitude layout, I mentioned the coordinating mini album we made.  Everything was cut with the CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge (except I managed to cut the rectangles myself).  I set my dial size at 5" and everything, no matter what key I chose, cut to scale to fit nicely.

We kept the pages fairly simple so that photos and journaling would take center stage.  We can always go back and add a little more bling once we've completed the pages if they're lacking.

All the paper is from the Huntington paper pack plus Colonial White cardstock.  Barn Red is such a great color, and we also used Desert Sand and Slate.
I'm linking this album up to the Color Dare color challenge #70: Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, and Olive.


We left the back cover plain card stock.  To me, it's easier not to have embellishments on the back so that it lays flat.

I do not usually go shopping on Black Friday. I agree, it's not worth the hassle... And I'm so tired from Thanksgiving that I want to sleep in! LOL! Your gratitude journal is amazing and such a wonderful idea. We really do have a lot to be Thankful for. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Thanks for playing at Color My Heart!
