This month I enjoyed choosing the inspiration kit and challenges for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. And I had fun with my own kit, Autumn Adventures. I completed five layouts from this kit. Happily, I used up all of the patterned paper in my collection, but I am afraid I only made a small dent in the embellishments I chose. Oh well, those supplies will go back in my stash and wait to be picked for another kit!
The first three layouts I made were for the challenges at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
Challenge #1: November in the US is a month all about food. So your challenge is to scrapbook about a favorite meal—something you had in a fancy restaurant, a meal you love to cook at home, or maybe your favorite weekend breakfast. Show us what you are eating!
I chose to scrap about one of my favorite summer activities involving food–having a cookout on the grill. One of the best meals we had were hamburgers wrapped in bacon and stuffed with grilled vegetables and cheese. Delicious!
My layout for challenge #2 can be seen in this blog post.
Challenge #3: In cooler weather, we start dressing in layers stay warm. For the third challenge of the month, dress your project for the crisp air by using lots of layers.
Recently I have been purchasing many of my clothes through the online delivery service, Stitch Fix. I decided to document my experience in this layout.
I used lots of layers on the page, which I thought was appropriate for a story about clothing.
The final two layouts I created were for the Ready, Sketch, Go class by Tracie Claiborne and Jen Schow. I LOVE using sketches for my pages so I am thoroughly enjoying this class!
This page documents ten things that I am enjoying right now.
And this page tells the story of why we do not have turkey on Thanksgiving.
For years I made a traditional turkey for Thanksgiving. However, no one in my family really liked the turkey so I stopped making one every year. However, just when I thought I might try turkey again, we went on a homeschool field trip to a turkey farm. My youngest son loved the turkeys so much that he now insists that we keep our no-turkey tradition so the turkeys can stay alive!
Check back next month a special blog series at Counterfeit Kit Club for December.
Now go create!
