We had made a trip home because my sweet Mother in law Mary had passed on 11/01. 11/02 would have been her 69th birthday. So my Father in law had a celebration at his house for both her birthday and to celebrate her life on 11/02. It was a great day filled with lots of stories from family and her friends. We were so grateful for all the family members that were able to make it back.
I used the November Take 10 Kit and the enamels were from a previous kit and the white card stock was from my supplies and everything else was from the Nov kit.
Here are the contents of the November kit. I loved the colors and theme of this kit. Everything goes together so well that it makes it super easy to complete a project!
I am participating in Cathy Zielske's 30 Days of Thankful Facebook group and using her kit that was sold thru Studio Calico and also using some her digital files. This page is my days 1 thru 5. Some of the pictures are small but I wanted to do as few pages as possible for the 30 days. Hopefully this will get me in the habit of recording something everyday in my planner that I am Grateful for.
I have not used my typewriter in a long and evidently I need lots more practice with it!
My layout is from a trip back home to Bellevue Ne, and Sioux City Ia recently. All of the pocket cards are from the November Take 10 kit from The Studio 29 Designs.
The top right card is a stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop and I stamped it a second time on colored paper and then cut the states out that I wanted and glued them on. I stitched the path that we took and added stickles to the house and heart icons. I also stitched the timeline on the bottom of the card. Those enamel house stickers are from a previous Take 10 kit
I kept all the receipts and added the ones that pertained to these pictures in the mini envelope. Im sure the ink on these receipts will fade over time so I also wrote a small description on the envelope, I thought it might be fun years down the road to look back and see what gas prices were and etc.
The bottom 2 cards have some cork pieces, and I stamped on the cork and then used a punch.
The below image is the contents of the November kit and be sure to check out the shop as there are 2 add on stamps this month and lots of other goodies.
This is a 4x6 card from the November Take 10 kit from The Studio 29 Designs. I used the heart from the stamp set and filled it in with puffy paint. I used Scattered Straw and Diamond Stickles to add a little color and sparkle to the centers of the circles. The color of the alphas were a perfect match to the flag on the card!

Did a little playing with some of the other Tulip paint products with the November stamp set
Excited to get to use the Fall Back and clock from the October Take 10 kit from The Studio 29 Designs. I also used the weather stamp that was an add on in a previous month. We had to make a trip back home last week so I happened to be in Sioux City Ia visiting my family and Steve was in Bellevue Ne with his family, but the weather info that I used was from Bellevue Ne.
