More Gratitude tags

I'm really enjoying "The Art of Practising Gratitude" class hosted by Bernice.  For the prompt on inspiration, I used the suggested bubble wrap printing technique and journaled that "I have been inspired by brave artists, bold colleagues and fierce mothers." For the prompt on "Be Positive," I followed the painting with stencils technique and used the quote "Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things truly are."
I made this very simple tag because I wanted to highlight this quote. They key to happiness is being grateful for what you have.
I broke out my distress inks and journaled about the importance of making time to do the things you love. And here's what my tag book looks like now:
I'm off for the weekend to visit Henry in Oregon for Mother's Day. I hope your weekend is filled with inspiration, joy and gratitude.

Some great quotes. I like the idea of layering several tags in that way. Having children with "special needs", I think I have to be a fierce mother too much of the time to get them what they need, when it should be readily available. This weekend there is joy and gratitude that my girl has come to the end of a week of mocks and I'm hoping to find the inspiration to get my boy through the next two weeks of AS exams!

Hi Rinda, Happy Mothers' Day!

That's quite some Tag collection. I like the quote about being grateful for what we have - and this being the key to happiness. How true.
Nice variety of techniques and some fun stuff here!

The tags are really lovely, what an inspiring thing to do and while you are being grateful learning new techniques.

I hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day.

Happy Mother's Day! I know it's a good one if you're in Oregon with Henry! It's been a great one here as well. LOVE the purples and reds in the first tags, and the collection shot is great as well!
