Such a powerful word! 

Today's project was inspired by Chiaki Haverstick's Thankful Banner.  It is a MUST see.  The link will take you to her project page, as I am sure there are other pretty creations to craft!

My project will be entered into the Scor Pal Challenge, More Than One Score, Family/Thanksgiving and for the Stamp TV Challenge, Set From The Past.

*****  update *****  I guess I also have to mention where the score lines are for the Scor Pal Challenge: 

3 3/4" x 12"  card stock score at 2 3/4"  5 1/2"  8 1/4" and 11"
3 3/4" x 11"  card stock score at 2 3/4"  5 1/2" and 8 1/4"

The instructions were very easy to follow, the FUN part was adding all the layers and decorating it.
Supplies Used:
Gina K Designs stamp sets and cut files:  Harvest Of Wishes, Spring Blessings, So Grateful, Warm Spring Wishes. I used my Cameo to cut out all letters.  Swiss Doss Embossing Folder.  Hole Punch, sheer ribbon, pop dots, adhesive pearls, Stickles and Copic Markers.  Sizzix die, Branch With Leaves.  Designer Papers; Deja Views, Global Treks and DCWV, Shimmer Stack
I really enjoyed making this project.  Chiaki's is fantastic!
