November Scrapbook Layouts

I hope y'all enjoyed a fun-filled Halloween!
It's November now and things tend to start getting a bit hectic and busy with Thanksgiving around the corner and then the holiday season.
I absolutely love this time of year.  I try hard during the month of November to take time out of my busy day and just "BE" and reflect on something (it can be anything) that I am grateful for.  This simple excersize can do wonders for my day.  Have you ever tried it?  I invite you to this month.
Several years ago I created a "Thankful Poster."  I put a white blank piece of paper in a 16 x 20 frame.  I collected an assortment of fun-color markers and placed them in a jar.  I left the frame and markers in our kitchen and encouraged my family to jot done things they are grateful for throughout the month of November.  I was pleased that my family got into it!  Our poster was filled with words and illustrations.  We hung the frame in our house and have all stopped to re-read our blessings from time to time.
I decide last night that we are going to do this activity again this month.
Perhaps you might want to invite your family to do the same?

I have lots of fun classes coming this month and even into early December.  I am hoping to help you create your holiday cards and perhaps some gifts and packaging a bit easier this year.  More info will be coming soon.

Below you will see the November Layouts I am offering this month.  My classes are FREE-you just purchase the required supplies.  Kits are available to Go for those unable to attend the class.
We will be working with the "ProPlayer" kit.  This kit screams computer and technology but, like all Close To My Heart Kits, it is so versatile! I love how perfect it is for my son's band memories.  I am sure you have some treasured photos that would look fantastic on these layouts, too!
Take a peek at the photos and shopping list below and plan to join me on either
