Crazy November

Well, after promising to get blogging sooner, here I am a month later!  I'm so sorry.  It really was a crazy couple weeks.  Halloween parties, followed by my daughter's birthday combined with lots of scrapbooking parties made for some very hectic times.  I would not change it for the world though.  I really had fun.  It really got me thinking of what a great group of people my family is surounded by.  We have amazing neighbors that really feel like family.  Our Halloween block party was a sucess again this year. We also have great friends, some old, and some new,  some which we don't see nearly as often as we would like, but we truly are blessed to have them around.  Choosing and keeping great friends is a skill I want my daughters to learn as it take you so far and makes life so much more fun.  Seeing my daughters interact with their friends at Marianne's birthday party made me realise that they are on the right track.  They are compasionate, energetic, helpfull and so charismatic that other kids all seem to want to be their friend.  It make me so proud!

Now, back to scrapbooking.  Here are a couple projects atht I have worked on. 

This one is another take on the Flip flap project.  I was asked to do a workshop using the flip flaps with autumn colors.  The Olivia Workshop on the go pack was perfect.  I also added som mocha opaques.  I found that the leaves popped more if you scored them in the middle.  They jsut look more natural

This other layout is ready for my Christmas 2010 pictures.  It is my November workshop project.  I used the Mistletoe Creative basics paper with the AdornAble stamp set.  To add the silver, I used embossing powder and the heat setter.  I love the final product. 

Now I won't make promises I know I won't be able to make, but I do know that I have a Christmas workshop that I am hosting on Sunday.  I will have pictures of the finished project on this blog by Saturday night!  Have a nice rest of the week!
