Scarlet Lime November goodness

The November kit is up at Scarlet Lime and it's a beauty! The main and Frugal Fab kits are still available, so head on over and snap them up!

Here's what I did this month:

First, the Main kit!

I love the fall colors in this! I went simple on this layout below, about my little bro.

Journaling reads: I don't remember what year this was or how old you were. I just love the glimpse into you as a boy.

This is an example of a layout you can create when the event has already been lost in your memory.

This next one documents a friend's engagement party (called "vort" in Yiddish--odd word, I know:))
Journaling reads: After Sarah and Brian got engaged, the fab 4 plus husbands went up to Monsey for the vort. We had a blast!

And a sneak at the patterned paper flower...

I just crumpled patterned paper by hand for this. Easy-peasy!

And now, the Frugal Fab kit:


This first layout needs a little backstory--S and I met online at a Jewish dating site, and this photo below (minus his mom) was his profile picture! I'd been wanting to scrap this for some time, and loved the color combo between S's shirt and the kit. I used some beloved punches on this one--the Martha Stewart butterfly, and bracket border!

This last one is a photo from my days as a camp counselor. Late nights, screaming children, poor hygiene management (on the part of the screaming children)---I wonder how I survived it all!

But this photo reminds me of the awesome parts of camp, that made the squishy broccoli quiche and sleep deprivation worth it. The lazy mornings lying on the grass, hours spent cooking hot dogs to perfection, sweet little faces asking you when the next activity starts...priceless.


And there you have it--happy November!

What are YOU doing special for November?

I have nothing firm planned, but ideas include:
1. Buying a pumpkin spice candle and lighting it
2. Getting a pumpkin spice pedicure at a salon
3. Campaigning Starbucks to make their pumpkin spice latte kosher (can you sense a theme here?)
What would YOU vote for?

And before you go, check out THIS beautiful post and THIS fun sketch!
