Default 30 Days of Gratitude

Hey there sweet shoppers, are you ready for a fun, positive and fairly easy challenge? 2020 has been a roller coaster. So we thought a 30 days of gratitude challenge would help bring some positivity back.

For this challenge, it's fairly easy and open to interpretation. The only thing we ask is that each prompt is represented fully. For each prompt, you can do a picture or journaling, please don't just post a title of the prompt with some clustering. You could do 30 layouts + the bonus for a full album, you could do a weekly layout sort of like project life, or you could take your 30 pictures & journaling and do a monthly layout at the end of the month.



You have until December 5th at 11:59 pm EST to complete the challenge. If you are going to do 30 layouts, you could just upload 1 graphic at the end of the month showing all 30 layouts like the passport challenge or the older bingo challenge.

Let's have fun and be positive.

I'll link some great layouts and kits for this challenge in another thread.

Great idea! I love the flexibility of the challenge. As a journaller I'll probably have mostly journalling with some photos. Excited to get started!

so can we do more than 1 prompt on a page? I'm a little confused.....we have to do all 30 of these prompts? or can we pick one prompt and that would count towards the challenge?
i.e. can something old and something new be on ONE layout or do they have to be separate LO's?

All 30 prompts should be separate unless you are doing a weekly layout or a monthly style layout like one of these, or some other layout that shows each layout:







I plan on starting a layout with one of these and then just adding my pictures each day. If you wanted to journal, you could do a weekly project life style layout using a card with your prompt and then journaling on it.

I could totally see these templates working too, for those who want to do photo AND Journalling. With six photo spots on each page, you'd end up with 5 pages in total for the month.



You could always alternate one day photo, the next day journalling:

SO fun! I'm going to use Lorie's new gratitude album anyways- might as well kill 2 birds! Here's her supplies that I'm using! I'll post it when I'm done small so I don't have 30 full sized layouts here!



Or the whole kit-n-caboodle

So this can be just one layout with our thirty items? Or does it have to be 30 separate layouts?

Here's my layout for Nov. 1

November 1: Person

My mom!!
I journaled about my mom. Her name is Lieve, so that's why I used the large L. She doesn't like to have her picture taken and she doesn't like to be on the internet. So I made a photoless layout.
The journal says that my mom is my everything. She takes care of my grandparents, she works full time out of the house and still she's always there for me. I am so thankful to have her in my life.

It can be one layout with your thirty items if that's how you want to do it.

I absolutely LOVE this challenge! Thank you so much for putting together the challenge and the prompts, Holly

I was planning on doing the full month on one of the 2-page templates, but now that I've seen Sarah & Krista's one-day layouts, I might have to do a page for each day! LOL!

Between Sarah's layout and yours, it makes me want to do 1 layout for each prompt... <3

ok I like the idea of doing one LO (30 days) of gratitude/each prompt, but I also know sometimes I can't commit to that....so I like the idea of using one of Cindy's templates and just adding a picture to each day as I go

Nov 2: Comfort

My job and the coronacrisis are exhausting me mentally at the moment. I work from the home since March and I haven't seen my co-workers and the office since March. And since we're in lockdown, my world has become very small. I rarely leave the house and go outside. The one things that gives me comfort and sets my mind to rest is bingewatching series. We're watching Fringe and the masked singer at the moment. That's what my journal is about.

*edit: I deleted my layout, since I wasn't happy with it and it won't match my next layout. So I'm starting over with my layout for November 3th.

I was going to do one layout a day but then I decided I really like Lorie's template. So I'll post my layout when it's all finished.

I won't do all of these but will pick and choose a few to do. I like prompts that get me thinking about journaling which I suck at and like that already a few ideas are coming to mind.

30 Days of Gratitude challenge
November 3: Freedom

Story about how grateful I am to live in a land where there is freedom, freedom of speech, freem to go where you want, to dress how you want, to be who you want... and even though our freedom is limited by all the measures to defeat the coronavirus, it's only for a limited time.

30 Days of Gratitude challenge
November 4: Friends

Grateful for friends, esp. our friend Viviane. We don't get to see each other now, due to corona. She's a mutual friend of ours and she means the world to us.

30 Days of Gratitude challenge
November 5: Technology

My journal page is about how grateful I am to have all sorts of technology at hand, when I need, where I need it. Especially during this time when we don't get to see, touch, hug our loved ones. Technology is a lifesaver.

Here is Day 3:
I just realized that I am not following the prompts...it just works better for me to come up with something to be grateful for on the fly every day
