Attitude, Gratitude, Fortitude

This is my entry for the Circut Circle Blog Friday Challenge.  Must use French Manor Cartridge and at least 2 cuts from the cricut machine and pearls or rhinestones.

An Attitude of Gratitude is Fortitude!
My New Motto!

Made using French Manor
Bird Cage cut at 5"
There is no shadow cut for this feature so in DS I hid the countour  (or you could glue the pieces back in) to create the back of the cage.
Bird cut at 2" and 2.5" in red, then again in black.
Lyrical Letters for the sentiments cut at 1.5"
Home Decor for the Flourishes cut at 3"
George to cut the mats, sized to my canvas and to cut the red pieces I used to highlight the inside of the cage, Oval and rectangle cut at 4.5" each.
Papers are Cricut Papers and 
Me&My Big Ideas Color Basics
Rhinestone Jewels for the bird cage accents and the bird's eye.

If I'm grateful for my experiences, only then do I have the strength to endure.

Being grateful for my life experiences makes me stronger.  Sometimes though, it is so hard to be grateful for things like... being in a cage.... but during that time, there is gratefulness for security, gratefulness for routine, gratefulness for food.  Being freed from the cage by things such as learning a new language or exploring the world I am in.....lots of things to be grateful for.  Getting to view the cage from inside and out, that's strength.  I am preaching to no one but myself. This trio of pictures, I created to remind me of the wonderful things that can be experienced with attitudes of gratitude!
