November 2011 Sharing From the Heart

Whew! I almost missed this month's Sharing From the Heart Blog Hop! I don't know how I missed the sign up? Well Diana, bless her heart, was willing to add me to the list so here I am! You should be hopping in from Adeline's Blog. I was so excited to show off my pages for this time because I REALLY like the CTMH Elemental Paper Pack! It's SO versatile. The colors are awesome and the patterns are great for fun backgrounds. This sketch is from Even More Scrapping #34 Sketch. Cheryl does such a great job with the sketches! I rotated the sketch to make it work for my pictures.
Check out the CUTE leaves and letters all cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cart. For the accent colors to go with the Elemental Paper Pack I used the new Dark Yellow & Orange Shade Pack. It gave me some great variety for the leaves and the letters. Don't forget that with the new CTMH DSP, the fun strip I have in the middle was cut from the top of the paper. I think this is a GREAT idea and I'm really pleased they have the name now on the back of the strip and not on the paper. By the way, these fun Fall photos are from our annual Fall Tour Day. Here in Ohio, every year in October they designate a weekend and a variety of Fall stops you can
check out. We only picked 2 - 3 stops but it was a beautiful day and just perfect to be out touring the every day sites we miss. Not to mention, the color was indescribable. For this page I added a poem I found called, "October's Party". Sometimes I don't have alot of journaling for this as we go every year and the pictures are just sites we saw so a poem worked perfectly. I had SO much fun cutting out the leaves on my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge that I cut some extra to use for a card. The word "Fall" was actually a goof for my page as it was too large to fit in the spot I wanted. All good, it could go on my card. The card design is from this weeks Card Pattern's #141.
Making the card was a great way to use up the scraps from the page. I added Glitz Glitter to some of the leaves to give it a little sparkle.

Well, I hope you've had fun on the Sharing From the Heart Blog Hop for November. You probably arrived from Adeline's Blog but if not, no worries because you're now back at the beginning and headed to Diana's Blog. Thanks for Hopping!

Ahhh Holidays

I always look forward to the holidays but getting there is crazy. No matter how much planning and practice I've had, it just seems to be controlled chaos. I find myself wishing for peace and yet, the holiday arrives and it becomes quiet and calm around my house for a few days. Ahhh, Holidays! Once again this year I find myself planning and figuring for how to get all I want completed done for the celebrations. I'm hopeful this year, I have the perfect plan, LOL! We'll see? It's always fun to try. My card is sketch came from Freshly Made Sketches #10 and a cute card I cased in the SCS Gallery.
