Uh oh. I'm human. :)
WELCOME to Project 12, November edition!
When we've found time, we've been working on our scrapbooking, right?! I'll tell you, I'm in shock that it's November. I can't believe Halloween already happened. Talk about a whirlwind! Why is life doing that? I feel like it's zipping by too fast to even enjoy it. oh my.
We've been working on our September layouts, so I wanted to remind you of the September sketch:
And this is what I came up with this month:
As in all things, I was behind on my Project Runway... so one night while watching the final four battle it out, I took out my sewing machine and stitched random grids to mimic the fun grid in the background paper. I just adore the texture it adds. (I also did that a wee bit on my layout for the Sketchpad class that KP is offering now. Check it out!).
September was busy too. We were in the Seattle area at the beginning of the month, doing the beach, ocean, city thing. And then we dashed home for school to start. Since September speaks School to me, I decided to use that photo for my main photo this month. But we also did random things like watch hula dancers, celebrate my mother in law's birthday, and go to the lake to catch frogs. Random things need documented too, right? It's fun to document the random things, with art.
Most products used were from the November kit from Studio Calico, Handmade. But that's my ribbon, the blue buttons are from my stash, and the blue alphas are from the Field Guide main kit (which is still available)
I did end up catching all the submissions, and these are a few that caught my eye:
I LOVEd Natalie's (vegatablog) layout this month. I know I highlighted it at SCT too, but I couldn't help myself. I really like the color palette and that background print works great with the design. And the stitching! I love the stitching!
I love the way Shelly does her journaling. Always do.
In love with the doilies here.

And now, the October sketch:
Nicely done Becky Fleck!
As always you have until the 28th to link your layout here or at SCT if you want a chance at a prize (check out the Project 12 page up top if you have any questions or send me an email).
And now.... a few questions I want to ask about Project 12. Please answer them, whether you participate in the challenge or not, if you have time.
1. What do you like about Project 12?
2. Do you like using sketches? What about having 2 page layouts?
3. Is there anything in particular you'd like to see going forward, that might entice you to play along?
4. How much does the prize influence you?
I have a few things rolling around in my head, and would love to hear what you think about this challenge. I have been hosting it for a long time, and using this format for a while too.
That's about it! Now I'd better get to work on October before Santa comes down the chimney (because that is how quickly the world is spinning these days). :)
