Thanks to everyone who took time to post to my little challenge for the Nov. CC. Your comments were so amazing and thoughtful. I will be giving you all the CC starter kit. :D

But I have jury duty tomorrow... and depending on how long whatever case I get (if any) lasts, I will get you the download links asap.

Please be sure you have emailed me, so I can send you the links!!

I love all the big family holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Next month I am hosting the Color Challenge at Deco-Pages.com, special thanks to Lorene Hill who also contributed to the kit that will be used....

Each month different Deco-Pages.com Designers host the challenge (Oct. is Jen Hanson!) with a specific set of colors they choose. They make a starter kit that goes in the store for $1.99 - a super deal and inexpensive way to support the site and designer a bit.

Here is a layout I made with Jen's kit for Oct - Flower Power... So cute!

But you can use any kit you like so long as the colors match the challenge for the month. :) Then you can earn rewards for participation. Reward 1 for making 1 layout, Reward 2 for making 3 layouts, and Reward 3 for making 5 layouts.

Here is what is in store for Nov. 2008 -- Click images to view larger previews. :)

I had good intentions about keeping up with my blog... honest. :D

But its been a little crazy the last few months. My MIL and FIL were moving from a house they had lived in for 30 years, and hubby and I were helping them get packed and settled in. In a way it was almost fun, but definitely a lot of work. There new house is just gorgeous though and they are across from a great fishing / duck pond, the kids really enjoy going over for a visit.

In between all that we have been plugging away with our daily school routine, fighting off infections like strep and taking care of other responsibilities.

Now I've been called for Jury Duty on Monday, which will be a new experience. I am actually looking forward to learning a little about how the process works. There was a time when I was young I actually dreamed of being a lawyer. :D My mom always said I could argue with a fence post...

Today has been a nice lazy day around home, so I had a little time to just play a bit.... Shhh don't tell anyone because I have emails I really need to catch up on too, but that's planned for after dinner tonight and all day tomorrow.

I made this fun little doodle frame, which is CU ok. The white border shown is for the preview only. I hope you enjoy it, and leave a little love while downloading.


I really will be planning to add more posts and things soon, some more freebies, a little contest in honor of Thanksgiving and my birthday next month... so sign up for my news feed or check back in soon. :D
