Hello and welcome to the Reverse Confetti World Gratitude Day Blog Hop!

No, this isn’t a holiday that we have made up, it’s a real day for you and everyone around the world to show their gratitude.  Here at Reverse Confetti we are celebrating with a gratitude themed blog hop and a chance to win as a THANK YOU to YOU!  There’s a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance at a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti Store.

In addition to the overall theme of the hop, we’ve also taken note that tomorrow is the first day of Autumn and we’ve added some awesome fall color inspiration to our projects.

. . . . .

I’d like to start off by listing a few things that I am thankful for:

1. My family.  They are #1 in my life. I am so blessed that I have such a wonderful and supportive husband and father to my beautiful, funny and awesome kiddos.

2. My Friends.  You know who you are.  I love you all.

3. Reverse Confetti.  I am thankful that I had the opportunity to launch this company a few months ago.  I love my design team and I truly think (know!) that our customers are the best…THANK YOU!

. . . . .

When I think of a fall color palette, I automatically think brown and orange, but there are so many more colors that you can bring into a fall themed project.  I took my color inspiration from this pillow…

I love the pop of bright yellow and the addition of blue and I kept that in mind when I created this Thank You Box using the new FOREVER FALL set…

Instead of using gray, like on the pillow, I opted for the kraft colored burlap because of the texture that it brings to this front panel.  For such a small space, there is a lot going on, but it all came together very easily.  The white panel is embossed with a chevron embossing folder and then I layered the burlap, die cut (Silhouette) leaves with sponged edges, flag ended strips and the stamped heart and sentiment.  To top it all off I added a woodgrain button tied off with linen thread.

Of course, what good is a “thank you” box if it isn’t filled?  The back side is filled with Candy Corn White Chocolate M&Ms and in the front, I put some krafty supplies (blank tags, ribbon, twine and buttons) into a cello bag.
