Hello November. Hello fall-like temps! This is by far my favorite time of year. There’s just nothing like a cozy sweater and a delicious latte. Are you feeling me? Locally it’s $4.55 for a pumpkin spice latte, but oh my, how delicious. We are in the final stretch for Project 12, and that means the September sketch. As a reminder, this is what the sketch Becky created looked like:
And this is what I came up with this month:
We’ve been so busy this month that I actually didn’t have a lot of photos to choose from. At the beginning of the month we were in the Seattle area for a week and I took a lot of photos then, but with a recap layout, I didn’t really want to use more than one photo from that adventure. I chose a family photo with my dad when we took the boat across the Sequim Bay to check out a lighthouse. I also had tons of school photos of my girls together and separately, but just chose one to use. I made it the focal layout of the month because September is typically the beginning of a new school year.
My other photos were a birthday photo with Grandma, and a quick photo I snapped during a summer concert we saw in the park where we live. There were Hawaiian dancers and at one point they invited the kids up to hula, and I got as close as I could to the action. With a random photo like that, where else are you going to put it in your scrapbook than on a monthly highlight layout?
As usual, I have some favorites submitted to SCT that I wanted to highlight.
I love how Andrea did that banner at the top of her layout:
a row of stitches and then the veneer pendant shapes on top. LOVE! I also adore the notion that she doesn’t have time to scrap but makes time for Project 12. Bestill my heart, a reason to keep on with the challenge. Thank you so much for saying that Andrea!
Hello Natalie, you had me at stitched circles.
I love how clean this design is too. Just perfect. A great layout to share this month.
I loved Christine’s color palette. I also liked how she did the journaling with the tiny alphas. Basic bullet points to highlight her month. I also like how she stuck to the sketch!
Thank you yet again for playing along with the challenge this month! As always, a prize is in store. I actually used this product on my layout this month.
The winner of the Xyron adhesive from my blog is: Marci. The winner from SCT is Catherine with her layout here. Congratulations ladies! I hope you like your mega runner, and 100 feet of adhesive! Woot! Send us your mailing information at firstname.lastname@example.org (put P12 winner in the reference line!)
Now that we are into November it’s time to work on those October layouts. As a reminder, here’s the October sketch:
