November PageMaps with BasicGrey

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.

  2. You’ve made me want to go out and collect leaves to wax. LOL Can’t wait to see what you’re making. The layout is amazing. You and Jinny Newlin inspire me so much with your ability to put all those bits and pieces of collections together in such fun creative ways. You truly captured a wonderful moment in both the photo and your layout for it. Hugs!

  5. Your layout is so sweet and precious, Audrey! Love the photo! I have a friend who has built in shelving on a living room wall. She creates a beautiful scene for each season on a separate shelf so she can enjoy them year round. Thanks for stopping by my blog and always leaving a sweet comment. I think the old IBS has flared up again!

  6. such a precious photo of your kids, I love catching moments like this between siblings. wonderful layout!
    I’ve never dipped my leaves in wax, great idea…all my leaves are filed between pages in one of my art journals. Such beautiful colors!

  7. I’m SO glad you were able to capture that sweet moment on film! (I’m reminded how, DECADES AGO, my lil sis and I developed a special closeness when I’d return home from college on the weekends…sniff.)

    Your page is PERFECT in detail and SENTIMENT!!
