Thank you! Gracias! Mahalo!

No matter what language you speak, the thought behind it is the same! 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more. 
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity. 
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. 
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Guylou herself is our host this week. She is a wonderfully creative and has wicked talent!
Her theme this week is Thank You, You're a star! SO...
you must have a star somewhere on the thank you project.
Guylou came up with a few new images that will go very well with this theme...
check them out here!
I chose to use   I felt she went real well with the paper I had decided on
Problem was I had no plain silver/foil look I made my own!
I embossed it with silver embossing powder and 
I think it matched the foil stars on my background paper perfectly!
What do you think?

I kept the color scheme simple to make the image stand out!
 You can check out all the deets at the challenge blog!
This challenge starts today and goes until September 29th.
Make sure you have a look at all the DT blogs and have fun!

This has a really neat metallic look to it that is perfect with this image. The pops of hot pink look great against the darker background, too. Makes me wanna go sing, which is a great feeling (even if nobody really wants to hear that. LOL).
