Lots to be thankful for

Hi all
Bridge here, This week at Scrapware our theme is  "Things to be thankful for".
I have lots of things to be thankful for but for today I am narrowing down my list and going straight towards the three people who mean the most to me and am thankful for each and every day, Yep Even when they are annoying me, Which i gotta say is OFTEN  LOL !! 
These three people make me who I am today, I am blessed to have them in my life, My hubby especially is the most important person in my life, my Rock, my best friend. Without him I would be a sad and lonely lady Which means i would not have my beautiful, cheeky, pretty little girls by my side, So yep I have heaps of things to be thankful for.

I have been waiting for the right kind of page to use my Overlay,today was that day :)
I have painted it Napthol red by jo sonya, and placed over black cardboard so it stands out , I have used my pinecone ink to give the edges a little definition.

Next I have used a word trio sheet painted the word cherish in yellow and then used a bit of ink around the edge to distress the word, This has been placed over a square on the top right , the family word i kept natural and nestled it with my circles that have been popped up off the cardboard using dimensional tape, unfortunately you can't really see the height of my embellishments in these photos.
Don't you just love the little house scene in the far left corner , I have covered the house and roof with co- ordinated paper and cut out the small holes for windows using my craft knife, the cloud was simply painted white and then doodled around the edge,the grass has been painted a light green.
The keys i have placed together using twine.

One has been inked using my trusty Pinecone ink ( what would i do without it) the other I have kept natural to tie in with the other natural colours on my page.
My Corre impact letters have also been painted using jo sonya yellow green, I have then inked around the edge.
I have also used a Scalloped border that I cut and painted using jo Sonya aqua paint. I have placed my scallops on the top and bottom of my title to frame it.

My Journalling for each is tucked under their photo,I have kept this hidden because its a bit personal to share. It simply states why i am so thankful for them and how i feel about each member of my family :)
