November Mood Board at ***Maja Design*** + Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi sweeties, 
I don't know if you have seen this already at the Maja Design blog but we have a beautiful mood board! It's a Christmas like mood board which is really hard for me because I don't do cards that often and I don't have many Christmas pictures to make a layout. But I still decided to make a 8x8 layout using the amazing "A Gift for You" collection with a really old picture of my two men. 
This is the pretty Mood Board: 
I think it's really pretty don't you think so too? 
Here is my take on the mood board:

The Wonder of Christmas: 
This was such a blessing to make do you see those pine cones aren't they the cutest ever I found the at a dollar store and I thought they were perfect for this layout. 
Let's have a closer look: 

For creating this layout I used some of my favorite Petaloo flowers and  Lindy's Stamp gang spray's & embossing powders. Other products used Cheery Lynn Designs dies & Imaginarium Designs Chipboard. 

I did a bunch of layers and mixed media but most of the time I seem to cover it up again with papers ughhh! I don't know why I do that all the time. 
With this layout I am going to enter the Color Challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang I think it's a very pretty mood board just take a look: 
Lindy's Stamp Gang product used:


Embossing powder: 

I hope you like my layout. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog. 
Thank you so much for your visit and I'd like to wish you a wonderful & sunny day.

Guest Designer for ***My Creative Scrapbook***

Hello my sweet followers, 
In the month August I was asked by Pam Rangel to be a guest designer for "My Creative Scrapbook" for the month September & October but something went wrong with my October kit
 {sadly it got lost in the mail}. 
So Pam asked me to design again in November with the super pretty Limited Edition kit. 
Luckily sweet Pam sent me the October kit again with my November kit, so that allows me to also work with that amazing kit too. Thank you! This November kit is filled with the pretty Royal Menagerie by Prima Marketing but it also has some papers by Marion Smith design and We R Memory Keepers in it. It was really a delight to work with it all.

My Favorite Memories of You: 
At first I looked at the papers and thought how in the world can I make four layout's with it, not that there isn't enough in the kit by far....there is lots in it! But I am a scrapper with a soft paper tone on the first sheet and in this collection there aren't enough soft that really got me to think outside the box for once! They say that that is a good thing right? Hehe
When I showed this layout to my husband he said hon please give me my shades WOW that's colorful it's not really your style isn't it hon and I said "yup! {he loved it though}
Let's have a closer look 

Wonderful Smile: 
For my second layout I went for the purple & aqua tones in the kit. This cute girl in the picture is my mother in law when she was just a three year old girl back in 1948 {I really love this picture of her} 
For the other three layout's I don't have close ups.I just forgot to take them ughhh.

Favorite Moments: 
On my third layout I scrapped a picture you must have seen before it's my sweet mommy back in 1958. I love the look in her eyes it's kind of in a glaze she is there but isn't really there, do you get me...

Special Day: 
And for my fourth layout I used a picture of Lily {she is the little niece of someone I know}.
Isn't she the cutest girl ever.....

It was so much fun working with this amazing kit thank you so much for your visit and have a wonderful day.
