Crate Paper's Autumn Blog Hop


Welcome to the Autumn Blog Hop with Crate Paper!

It's my first time participating in a blog hop so I am very excited, and speaking of excited...did you see the prize you could win? WOWZA!! That could DEFINITELY come in handy! So be sure and visit all the participating Crate Paper design team member's blogs so you get all the letters you need, and gain some inspiration along the way :)
Now to my tag--


There are SO MANY things I could have listed to be thankful for, but one day driving home I was noticing how beautiful the leaves looked in the trees on the road to our house and I thought "I am so thankful for this road home." Thankful that just around the corner I turn into our driveway that leads to our home, where I get to laugh and love with my sweet family.

Most everything I create has at least a touch of vintage.
Here I used my old typewriter to repeat the thankful theme, as well as vintage woodgrain Dymo tape--man oh man will I be bummed when my stash of that is down to nothing!

Burlap makes me think of fall for some reason so I cut out and sewed some leaves to add alongside beautiful papers and embellishments from Crate Paper's Restoration, School Spirit and Season lines.

I snapped a quick instant picture of our home and added it to the back of the tag. It will be interesting to see how it might change over the years. I love that the size of this tag will fit nicely into a gratitude journal I am creating.

Thanks so much for hopping over and if you have any questions about my tag just leave it in the comment section!
Now skip back to the Crate Paper blog to find your next designer blog stop! *and don't forget to grab that letter in the sidebar ;)
Have fun and enjoy your day!
