November Kit of the Month Reveal ~ Remember the Days!

The November Kit of the Month (Remember the Days) is now available at Flying Unicorn Store  There are no sign ups, no membership, once they are gone, they are gone ! 31.99 + 8.95 shipping USA and 16.95 International. And oh my goodness ...You are going to LOVE this kit!
I am so excited to share a little of what I did with mine!

This layout above was a tribute page to my Dad. (Papers are all Glitz Designs except for the tags which are Riddersholm Chantilly Dawn.) The photo was taken in 1962 shortly before my parents moved to Colorado which was my Dad's dream come true! My title came from my own grandkids .. they always called him Reindeer Man because of some antlers he had mounted on his shop. (Title tiles by Lisa Gregory, thank you!)

I added a lot of symbolism to this one and did some heavy distressing as well as adding "natural" embellishments like the vintage Prima from the kit and the Dusty Attic long stem flower, cheesecloth and burlap from my stash.  The torn spot is to remind me of all the target practice we used to do. Dad was a gunsmith by trade. The cheesecloth and burlap were both things that he used frequently. And the Chevron patterned paper is reminiscent of the checkering that he did on custom gunstocks. I did throw in some lace, ribbon and buttons to remind me of his gentle heart and how much he loved his family. Plus ........ he could make the best apple pie you ever hoped to eat and made his own crust!!  Miss you, Daddy!

Now could this page be any more different than the one above? I had this great photo of dgd Maddie with her new hubby Marcos that I wanted to get scrapped. I had lots of fun with this one! The papers are mostly the Riddersholm and they are gorgeous with a capital G. I did throw in one piece of Glitz from my stash for the large circle. (Sketch is by former SOUS teammate Ness Waller.) I had fun altering my Dusty Attic piece, painting it first and then adding crackle accents to it after placing the title on it. I fussy cut the butterflies and added some crinkle ribbon and vintage Prima. The little cherub is from the kit. It comes in clay but I painted it white. A little punching, pearls and I was done.

Next up is the FABULOUS Melissa Frances Mini Calendar Book which is our Off the Page product this month. Be still me heart .. an OTP that I will actually use!! It has calendar pages with envelope pockets in it that I am going to use for receipts, cards and that sort of thing. I have purposely left my pages pretty flat so that it will not be too bulky. I am not totally finished with it either but ran out of energy ..  

Thanks for coming by! Hope you will hop on over to Flying Unicorn Store and will pick your kit up before they are gone! I could seriously use another one of these myself! While you're there, I hope you will take time to see what the rest of the Creative Team has done as well!

Happy shopping!
