Welcome to this month's Close to My Heart SOTM Blog Hop. Over 60 consultants are participating this month but BE PATIENT. Some of the ladies who participate every month may be without power and this hop should be finalized by November 7th! I, for one, know of the fears of living through a hurricane, but thankfully I have never lived through one like this! our thoughts and prayers are with everyone on the east coast.
If you have been hopping along, then you have just arrived from Shirley's Ross blog and viewed her awesome creation. This month's stamp set is S1211 Capture the Date and is a perfect set for all of your scrapbook layouts and cards to make sure you remember the dates of the events!
Here is the artwork from corp which also gives you some alternative ideas to use with this stamp set.
Ironically I flew up to WNY last week to visit my family and see a little of the fall foliage. Fortunately my plane was scheduled to leave Sunday night and I flew home without any incidents. One day it was absolutely beautiful ( the rest - no so much....) It was a sunny fall day with highs in the 70's and I was out taking pictures of the foliage. Sadly many of the leaves had fallen and by Sunday night, they were blown off the trees! But I think you can figure out what the date was!
This layout is also the November Make It From YOUR Heart workshop layout BUT you do have a choice of "Thanksgiving" , "Give Thanks" or "Fall" for your wording. I hope to be able to make another layout before the workshop next week - we will just have to see.
Here is my PicMonkey collage of the designs of the layout. You can see the techniques you will be learning next week - it really is an EZ technique!
