Freaky Fast Friday November Formula!!

TGIF!!!  I am SOOOO ready for the weekend, how about you???  I forgot to share the Freaky Fast Friday formula for November last week, so here it is:
Here is the amazing November Flavors of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom:

Here is the Simple Stories So Happy Together collection I used on today's layout:

Here is my layout using the November kit and Freaky Fast Friday Formula:
 Supplies Used:  Cardstock: Navy- from the kit; Patterned Paper: Simple Stories: So Happy Together- from the kit; stickers: Simple Stories: So Happy Together- from the kit

I struggled a bit with this formula at first, and I am not sure why because I usually struggle more when the formula includes a circle!  I finally found a design I was happy with. Even though I did struggle with it at first, the layout still came together in under 30 minutes, which is one reason this challenge remains my favorite!! I love the mix of patterns on this layout, this kit gives you a lot of patterns so it's easy to mix and match them!  I thought these colors were perfect for this lovely family photo of my friend and her sweet granddaughter and hubby!   Make sure and hop on over to the ScrapRoom blog to check out what the other DT members did with this fun formula!!  I hope you will find time to give a go, it is SUPER fun and FREAKY fast!!  Happy creating!

November Flavors of the Month kit at The ScrapRoom!

Howdy! Today I am sharing another layout I created using the November Flavors of the Month kit at The ScrapRoom!  Here is a reminder of the fun kit:

Here is the 1 Canoe 2 Willow collection I used for today's layout:

For today's layout I also used the November 1st sketch at Sketch N Scrap created by yours truly:
 

Here is my layout using the November Flavors of the Month kit & the November 1st sketch:
Supplies Used: cardstock: White- from the kit; Patterned Paper: 1 Canoe 2 Willow- from the kit; stickers: 1 Canoe 2 Willow- from the kit; enamel dots: Paper Studio- from my stash; Doilies: unknown- from my stash
For the 2 circle elements I used 2 different colored doilies to accent the pictures.  I used floral stickers from the included sticker sheet as my embellishments and popped them up on pop dots for more dimension.  I loved the pretty floral paper in this line and wanted to make it the focal point of my layout.  I added pops of gold by adding gold enamel dots near my 2 embellishment clusters.  I think the colors worked great with my photos!!  Make sure and hop on over to the ScrapRoom blog and the Sketch N Scrap blog to see what the other DT members did with this beautiful kit and sketch!! Happy creating!

Good morning!  I hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sleep this weekend!  This time change has made me into an early bird lol!  Today I am sharing my card using the November 5th card sketch at Sketch N Scrap!  Here is the fun sketch by sketch artist Heather:

Supplies Used: Cardstock: Kraft, Pool Party & Chocolate Chip- Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper: My Favorite Fall by Echo Park; sticker: My Favorite Fall by Echo Park; stamp : CTMH SOTM September 208; ink: Chocolate Chip- Stampin' Up
