Autumn Adventures Come to an End

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!

That wraps up my November kit, Autumn Adventures. If you have projects from your Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit that you would like to share, please do so on our monthly link-up page.

Check back next month a special blog series at Counterfeit Kit Club for December.

Now go create!
