Fall Leaves Gratitude

I love the quote by President Thomas S. Monson “To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.” I think it is true. Life is sweeter when we look through the challenges and experiences of our lives with gratitude. What better time of year to count our blessings than in the fall, which is why I used fall leaves for embellishments.

I like it so much that I made it again adding a die cut “Thank You” from Karen Burniston.
