Scrapbook Circle-My first month!! {November}

Honored to be a part!
And here are three of my layouts for the November Scrapbook Circle kit- Harvest Festival!
Got a 4th one-but I'll save that for when it is featured on the blog!
And a 5th one on my table, just waiting to be done!
LOVED this kit! I think I can get 6 out of it!
And scrappin' these now was perfect, because we are just smack dab in the middle of fall!
The trees here are still ablaze, and this kit had me in the mood to create!

This one, I got to try out the blanket stitch that I saw Michele Donner-Ramsey use on a store layout-and I just HAD to do it too! (details below)

I had to have this in front of me so I didn't mess it up...
Sewed on the heart hanging from the branch too... and check out that cheesy grin! LOVE!
The next 2: 8 1/2 x 11's... I like that I can throw them right into my 12x12 album with all the versatile page protectors out on the market!

...and the patterns in this kit! They really put together a stunning aray!
My 5th layout on my table is a "quilt"! The patterns are in perfect contrast with each other!
So here are the kits pictures... there was so much embellishment with the American Crafts sticker booklet, the Bella Blvd. sticker sheet, AND the Fancy Pants die cut set!
And those banner letters? Free printable! Love it!
So go check out all the designers created for November, and grab yourself a kit!
You won't be disappointed!

Vol 25 - Jessica Rose ROCKS!

i have no excuse. none. notta.
ok. i have like 20. but i'm back for just a sec to show my appreciation to Jessica Rose.
she is the mastermind behind vol 25. awesome. remember "the story matters"?
she did our typewriter. and it's really cool.
so i decided it was time i had the print she made with this typewriter.
it matches my master bedroom.
and that doesn't even have a frame yet, and i have framed her "freebies" in my order!
she sent one intentional freebie. i created 2 more.

so this is what i did with her the "official" freebie:
(cut from a postcard)
((50 cent frame from salvation army btw.))
(((click pictures for larger)))
and this is what i did with her card:
(up here on top-says "love" underneath.)
(card detail)
(notice a trend to my leaning. hee!)

and this is what i did with her postcard advertising her other wares at
(backed it with some pebbles inc. paper, and popped it with some foam squares)
better show that closer up...
it says 'not all who wander are lost". so true.

guess i like her stuff.

let's do a drawing of sorts.

comment here (have to follow me too, darn it) and i will give you a gift certificate of sorts for $17. (gets you any uncustomized 5x7. or use it towards a 8x10) do with it as you wish.
i pay her, you shop. FUN!
(you'll pay shipping too)

i will draw a winner on sunday-when i get back from being without kids AND with my husband, for 3 days! joy!! when does THAT happen???
