November Challenge

Good morning everyone! Not many sleeps now until the man of the month, Santa, makes his deliveries! I hope that you all have placed your orders for some great pressies!
Christmas is such a busy season…..I do love it and now that our Christmas tree is up it feels more and more like Christmas each day! I bet you are all up to date with your shopping etc…….I am hoping that maybe we might get an extension!!!! (Wishful thinking - I know!)
Even though this season is crazy with busyness I hope that you have had a small window of opportunity to join in on the challenge that the lovely Liz has set for us!
I had a heap of fun working on this challenge…….not to mention the fact that Jason (my hubby) is wrapped that I have scrapbooked a small portion of his memories.
This layout is of Jason with his first birthday present and when he bought his first car. I was a little sneaky…..I didn’t have a 5x7” photo, so I put two together to make one! 
I have used one of the newest Kaisercraft releases ‘On the Move It was different to work with but I really enjoyed it! 

I have used a clock stamp to cover the ‘clock’ section of this challenge. I also stamped this in a watermark ink. For the cogs I have used some cut from the patterned paper as well as some of the gorgeous A2Z Scraplets. I painted these black. 
For the musical element I have printed on some of the patterned paper a section of the sheet music for the song ‘Turn, Turn, Turn.’ I have also used these words for my title.

How cute is the little die-cut journalling card?

Now for my card…………
I have used one song that I love ‘bopping’ to at the moment……..”Jumpstart” by These Kids Wear Crowns. The Grade 6 students at work are using a part of this for their Grade 6 Farewell…….it is played EVERY day so I guess that is why it is stuck in my head. I have used the words Dreams - we got enough that we can fill the tank.
I have used some grey cotton to sew…...which I love to do on my cards and layouts. I have included a tiny little music element. I used my iTop tool for my brad and the New and Improved Kaisercraft Rubons.
Probably my favourite part of the card is the Acetate sheet at the bottom of the card. I have cut that from the 12x12 acetate sheet which is part of the On the Move Collection. I didn’t want to cut it…….it is just gorgeous! I also love the Thickers - do you?
I was so lucky to be able to attend the Scrapbookit Crop Day/Night on Saturday. It was lovely to meet some of our customers and blog readers. We had a ball…...I think I did more talking than scrapping…...but an awesome day anyway! I whipped up this card as an extra………
It doesn’t follow the rules of the challenge but it is a great way to use some of the die-cut shapes in this collection.
Well, if you have made it to the end of my long winded post….I congratulate you and think you deserve a treat! 
Make sure you pop into Scrapbookit to pick up all of your Christmas scrapping goodies.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Look forward to your blogging company in the New Year!
