Tammy's November Results

Okay, so I realize I have not posted September or October's results but I had to send out Thanksgiving cards so this challenge was completed first. I promise I will get to the previous months!

I had a great time using this kit. I was able to make four cards and then made several more things using the kit as well as other products. I hope you have fun playing with it as well.

Here they are all together:

And then individually, in order of favorite to least... :)

I tried to stitch the acorn but it didn't turn out quite like I wanted...

I really like the quote on this one...

I layered several of the ribbons on this one but it ended up a bit too masculine looking...

Here is one more, all the supplies are from the kit but I used a die to cut out the center of the patterned paper.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Claudia's October Result

I was so excited when I saw what Theresa sent as her October challenge. The papers were beautiful, I loved the quote, and having pages from the book was so cool. If you can't tell from my layout, I wanted to use every bit (I hope I didn't overdo it). I ran out of room for journaling... if anyone has any suggestions on how to fit it in, I'd really appreciate it. (I included what I had hoped to journal below the pictures, just to explain the layout.)

June 27, 2011 Mia loved playing with her tea set, and I was so eager to invite some of her friends over for a tea party. I wanted to include Gavin and his best friend, so I didn't want it to be too girly (as tea parties tend to be). The best solution I found: a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Zachary, Mackenzie, Sofia, Franklin, Jenna, and Nora joined us for a fun afternoon. We decorated big hats made out of paper bags, put together foam teapot picture frames, and ate a lunch of tea sandwiches, fruit, cheese, pink lemonade... and tea, of course. Minutes after our friends left, Mia crashed on the couch. Hosting a tea party is hard work.
