I can't believe we are half way through April; that means it's time for a midway post on Grace for Path of Positivity.  When I think of the word grace, I think about saying grace before meals.  This has always been an important part of our day.  There's just something so familial about gathering around the dinner table and showing our thanks through prayer.  

Growing up, we were always taught that being thankful and expressing that was a graceful, charming way to be; it was simply part of polite society!  In other words, if we didn't write the thank you, we didn't get the gift!  I, in turn, had the same rule for our kids.  They are both great about sending thank you's to all the relatives.  

When I saw this beautiful paper and frames from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, I couldn't wait to make a thank you note.  This entire top layer was created in Design Space.  I started with the lovely digital pink and then layered the sheet music.  Then I alternately stacked the two frames to create these lovely flowers!  I added a treble clef from Design Space (Quarter Note) and the sentiment (Chloe font).  I printed this layer off onto glossy photo paper and layered it onto black CS.  I finished it up with some pretty peach gems!
