A New Month, A New Look

Good Morning Everyone!
Happy November! This is my favorite month of the year. It's my birthday month and anniversary month, which makes it fantastic! I can hardly believe that DH and I will be celebrating 10 years together in just a few weeks. So, as I said last week was crazy; but it was a lot of fun. The kids all had a great time dressing up in their costumes and trick or treating. Jonathan's birthday is Oct 30, so between the birthday cake and the trick or treat candy, there is definitely no shortage of sugar in my house right now! As you can see, I've changed the layout for the month of November, I hope you like it!
I spent a lot of last week working on my Christmas cards, which I will be revealing a little later this month. I did also have a chance to do Beate's weekend sketch yesterday. I liked the layout, which I thought was simple and it didn't take long to do. I chose Pacific Point, Tempting TQ, and Kiwi Kiss for my main colors. The neutral color was just from my scrap package. I used my corner rounder to make the scallop edges on the Turquoise piece. I paper pierced all around the edges of the Pacific Point piece and then faux stitched with my Tempting TQ marker. I stamped the Kiwi piece with my "Crosshatch Background Stamp" in Old Olive ink. The sewing machine is from the "Puns from the Past" stamp. I stamped it in Close to Cocoa ink and then went over it with my aqua painters.
Well, that's all for right now, everyone! I am going to try to do Mojo Monday this morning, so I'll be back, hopefully in a few hours!
