Remember November

I love the "Pineapple Express" Warm moist air from the Pacific moving up and over the Prairie Provinces. We have had a week of above average temperatures. Far above average. So far above that new highs were set all over the place, replacing maximum recorded temps from the 1920's.

Unfortunately I did not physically experience much of this glorious extended autumn, ( Are we not allowed to call it Indian Summer anymore? I don't like how political correctness has infiltrated so many of our traditions) as I am indoors all day and by the time we get home it is dark. But the store has lots of windows, so we see the sunshine and the customers come in with happy energy.

 This next week we will return to normal weather patterns which keeps us around the freezing mark. Ho-hum. Grey November.

This months  CKC kit to copy is Cocoa Daisy's City Park

Beginning with the patterned papers, my kit starts as thus:

 The B sides offer this selection:

Then a piece of specialty paper. Vellum with leaf print.
And a handful of off cuts to add variety:
Then I added a Simple Stories Harvest Lane kit.
Nine 12x12 pages offer cut aparts.

And the B sides are MORE cut aparts, except for these four patterns. (wishin' I had duplicates of these papers)
 Now a sheet of boarders from Little Yellow Bicycle.
 Now the sticker sheets from the Simple Stories kit.
 Pockets from Simple Stories.
 Stamps from CTMH and Bo Bunny
 Puffy stickers and three tags.
 Black Thickers to try to use up. Small Golds alphas and a Tupperware stencil.
 Cute piks from a cupcake package.
 All together now. The papers are looking as such:
 And the whole kit as so:
Remember November
It is an embellishment light kit this month. But with fewer techniques, the completion of a layout can be  less time consuming. I missed the epoxy dots when assembling my kit but added them later. The cut aparts will be good for titles and sub titles. 

oooo....close ups!

 Come back in a few days (Thurs Nov 24) for the members' hop, in which I am participating. See you soon!

 Thanks for stopping by. Double thanks for comments.


  1. Love love love that vellum leaf paper! You did a great job capturing the essence of the inspiration kit in your color and pattern choices, and the cupcake pics are a very cute addition.

  2. An interesting collection of goodies. That is quite a large kit. I have those simple stories large pockets and completely forgot about them. Enjoy using the kit.

  3. I think you've really nailed the essence of the inspiration kit. Nicely curated kit - enjoy!

  4. You have done such an amazing job of matching and mixing. Love this superb kit!
