Thank God for KiDs! Thankful Day One of 30

What an honor to give thanks for kids!  I have spent nearly my
entire life working with kids in some form or another; first
as a Teen Sunday School teacher assistant, and then on to other 
ministries with my husband. Later I taught our daughter  to read, 
and homeschooled her for 3 years.  I taught preschool (3 year olds)
and Kindergarten, and in 3 different schools, I taught all grades.
KIDS have been my LIFE!
Here is an overflowing heart I painted- and am giving you today. :)

The 2010 Project

The 2nd annual Scrappers Give Thanks project has a goal of assembling 2000 participant-created 4×6 pages into 100 ten page (double-sided) mini albums to be delivered to 10 children’s hospitals across the country. Submitted pages should be scrapbook-style mini artworks containing positive words, happy images, jokes etc. and may be in digital or tangible formats.


The Scrappers Give Thanks mini albums will be assembled with 4×6 page protectors and o-rings. To ensure a consistent look and feel, participants must adhere to the following specifications:
  • Single-sided 4×6 pages
  • Vertical orientation only (4″ wide by 6″ tall)
  • Include age-appropriate positive messages and/or images
  • No glitter, embellishments greater than 1/4″ thick or copyrighted images


Visit the Scrappers Give Thanks Flickr group to view great examples from our creative team and fellow participants. The following digital submission is an excellent example of a fun page designed to bring cheer to kids:


Digital contributions should be emailed to as attachments. (Please do not zip.) All digital submissions will be printed by Scrappers Give Thanks through our printing partner, Persnickety Prints, and thus should be created at 300ppi and saved as a high resolution JPEG.

THESE are my own KIDS:

I really want to encourage all of you to participate in a very special project:

Thank You, Lord for KiDs!
