A Million Memories November

Time to share with you all my projects using the A Million Memories November kit. You can buy a kit HERE. This kit was full of the new Cosmo Cricket 1934, which I am completely smitten with, great colors with vintage charm.

I'll start with my favorites and work my way down the list...

Every year on Labor Day I take this same photo of my kids. This is the fifth year. If you click on the photo it will bring it up larger and maybe you'll be able to see the tone on tone title down the left hand side of the page. Love the way that it looks in real life. I didn't have a number sign so I hand stitched one in there.

This next layout was based on the November sketch that fellow design team member Jennifer Longenecker made.


This is my least favorite. One of those layouts where it was much cuter in my head than it looks on paper. Plus, I was doing some machine stitching on it and my machine went on the fritz and I couldn't get it fixed so I had to cover up holes with the ribbon. (Did get the machine working again as you can see by the above layout :) )


Some cards...the blue flower was white, I misted the heck out of it with Mr. Huey Lunchbox and then dabbed the excess up with a tissue and it dried to be the perfect seafoamy blue!



and some notepad holders...the last photo shows the insides with the cute little flap to hold whatever...




Lastly, but certainly not least. I want to give a public shout out to my best friend. I already knew how strong and brave she was, but this last month and in particular this last week she has made me so proud of her. She has been a real trooper and has proven once again that she is one of the bravest and strongest women I know. I am so lucky to call her my best friend. She still has a long road ahead of her. I have all of the faith in her and know that if she made it through this week, the rest should be smooth sailing. I know she reads this blog...so to my dearest friend...I love you!

I was inspired by your layout in the Oct 2010 issue of Scrapbook Trends called "Every Day You Blossom A Little More". Thanks for the inspiration.

Here is what I created:
