So, have I mentioned how much I have LOVED my November kit?
I mean seriously.....
this has probably been my favorite so far!
Well, I have 2 more LO's to add to the plethora of LO's this month.
So productive =) YAY!!!
So here is our precious Sir Cuteness.
He is our four year old grandbabe that LOVES to fish.
I mean L-O-V-E-S to fish!!
This pic is of our recent fishing trip on a day PaPa took off just to hang with us.
It was a splendid day.
He has the BEST PaPa.....
I have the BEST Husband.....
So on this page I decided to use my new Perfect Pearls.
(Yes I do realize PP is NOT new, only new to me, but I LOVE IT!!)
It gave this page a very artsy feel.
That plaid paper was some of my scraps that I had already punched circles
out of, so I just used the negative portion and added circles to it.
I love using things that I used to would have thrown away.
Stretch that stash, I say =)
Anyway, after some title work, washi tape, and some pen action
I called it good.
Then on this page, this pic taken the same day.
I did two different finishes on the same pic and added both to this LO.
This is a fav technique of mine.
So much visual interest.
Then the title, Oh the title!
Back when I was just really getting into paper crafting love,
and well before I had a studio
(thank you my fabulous hubby!)
I found a stack of chipboard letters on sale for $5.00!
And by stack, I mean a ginourmous stack I am still using today!
I really didn't know what I was getting =)
Well, I got them home and started playing with them,
and soon became overwhelmed and frustrated,
(they are NOT self adhesive).
Well once I finally figured out the best way to adhere,
I love them!
One of the things I love most is that you can sand them
and give them this great vintage "old" look to them.
And on this page it is the perfect title.
I added some leaf brads that I had in my stash.
Some bling that I got in the $1 bin at Wal-Mart,
(yes that is possible)
some twiney love in the form of the curvy line
and circles (another fav technique =).
Added journaling and ribbon and
WOW!! I have gotten so much use out of this kit.
In fact, I may be out of 12x12's on this one.
I've never used a kit quite this thoroughly!
I may do an add on of paper and keep going as I have a
fun day at the Pumpkin Patch still to scrap from this fall,
but I find myself elbows deep in Christmas!!
I'm getting my JYC ready
and having SO much fun doing that.
But I may get to one of two more LO's before I call this done.
Have a Blessed and Beautiful, Crafty Kind of day ~~
