Hello November

Happy November Y'all!!
I love the fall and I love November.
I am such a fan of Thanksgiving, 
yes I do love the food, 
but most of all I love my family, 
and taking time to be thankful and this November
is getting started off just right.

I received an email about a month ago 
asking if I'd like to be the guest designer 
for the month of November.
I was so excited and so honored to be apart of this great
team again.  It has been awhile.

So Hi!  
I'm just thrilled as punch to be here.
(I don't even know what that means, but still ;) )

The kit this month is the amazing "City Park" kit from
Cocoa Daisy.  It is just lovely.

So I have been building kits from my stash for ever so long,
and what I have discovered for me is that it is best
to work with a good sized kit with several choices.
I like a good sized kit.
I do reserve the right to pull from my stash,
but try to stay within the confines of the kit,
so I pull more than needed most of the time.
(That and I have a ginormous stash of goodies I'm
CONSTANTLY trying to use).  

So first up my papers.
All of the papers I chose are VERY, well, how do I put this tenderly...
Really, really old.
Like some of them do not even have the strips at the bottom to 
tell me where they came from,
but they are loved and are gonna get used.
I hope ;)
Oh look at the loveliness.  
I mean that woodgrain...swoon.

Then I added lots of cut aparts, 
because well, I have a lot of cut parts.
And since I didn't have any of the Shimelle line in this kit,
I grabbed some from a former kit of hers (I think the first one)
and will be working with them.
Plus, so many other cut aparts too.

 Then last but not least the goodies.
I have several well-used and loved sticker sheets that 
I am determined to get used this month.
They need out of my stash people.
It is time.
Also lots of clips, ephemera, enamels, tags, cards, and stuff.
Lots and lots of stuff.
Oh how I love kit building.

Thank you SO SO much for starting here and do please
roll right along to the remaining design team members.
They are seriously so amazing!!  
Check out their kits, show them some love and get to building your own.
I can't wait to see what y'all make.
Leave me a comment and I will head over to check it out.
I will also be checking out the CKC blog all month in the linkz.  
I can't wait to see what y'all make.  

Next up is the amazing Lisa.  Go show sista' some love. 

See you soon,


  1. What a lovely selection of stash and supplies! It will be a fun month!

  2. Yay for including the old stuff. I think this kit really lent itself to that, I know my stash is especially old this month too. I'm so looking forward to seeing what you whip up this month. Enjoy.

  3. Love your kit! Definitely has the fall vibe from the original. Thanks again for being with us this month!

  4. Great kit! And hello from a fellow Missourian!

  5. Welcome back Dawn. You've done a wonderful job on your "old" kit and I'm sure you will enjoy diving into it this month.

  6. Your kit is fabulous and includes several items I have in my own "old" stash! I think you've pulled together a wonderfully autumnal kit that will be sure to get plenty of use throughout the month to create some gorgeous pages. We love having you with us this month Dawn! ps. thanks for the kind words!

  7. Ooooooh a MEGA-kit - which I'm sure will gie you loads of scrappy opportunities. Have fun!

  8. That woodgrain really is lovely! I've got lots of papers without the branding strips too so it's nice to know that I'm not alone - and great to see that you've included them in your kit too. Love all those pretty tags too. Thanks for joining in this month - looking forward to seeing what you make with your kit!

  9. Ooh, I love the assortment of little tags and die-cuts! What a fabulous kit!
