Hope you all had a very lovely weekend, my friends! I know I did, although it was a bit bittersweet, too. I do love November, but November means I must pack away my beloved Halloween for another year…. Fortunately I have many happy Thanksgiving things to take their place, and a few crafty projects up my sleeves to keep me satisfied. I spent most of my weekend packing and unpacking and fluffing up the house with my collection of turkeys, pilgrims and Indians. And Crissy and I went on a little hunting gathering expedition for fall leaves, which are at their peak here right now. Yesterday I dipped all the leaves in wax to preserve their color. Can’t wait to show you all what I’ve been doing with them..
This month, the BasicGrey designers had the pleasure of creating project samples for Becky Fleck’s November PageMaps. I am a huge fan of Becky’s sketches, so it was super exciting for me to play along. I was given one of the 8.5 x 11 sketches and used it to create this page of my two favorite subjects.
I absolutely cherish this tender moment I caught between my two kiddos. These two may claim to not like each other very much, and not to miss each other since Pete left for college, but I’m not fooled. I see the truth. I’ve got the proof right here.
Lots of fun here mixing elements from the Carte Postale, Capture, and Persimmon collections. Carte Postale Element Stickers for the circles and Capture Photo Frames for the squares. And lots of sweet Candy Dots.
To see the sketch I used, and all of Becky’s amazing November sketches, hop on over to the PageMaps blog. And thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous day!
