Pumpkin Patch and more.

This time for Thanksgiving I planned ahead and brought a box of scrapbooking stuff with me to my parent's house.  Just plunked it in my suitcase and surrounded it with clothes.  Luckily, Avinash did most of the work of putting up the tree this year so all I really had to do was make a few snowflakes and had plenty of time leftover to scrap  I am worked through a stack of fall photos and my Studio Calico Sock Hop kit mostly. 

I love the poodle skirt stamps from the kits and stamped it onto some dear Lizzy chipboard.  I am without most of my fancy tools but still wanted to do something a little unique so I fussy cut the washi-tape-like Crate paper  to layer underneath. 

 Sometimes I don't like to stick embellishments on randomly, but notice the feathers in her headband.  See? It all works.  I used dark grey with gold chipboard thickers for the title.  I have been using a lot of gold lately.  I think it will carry through the holidays for sure. 

 I love these dear Lizzy tags.  I had to put a brad in the middle.  I added a woodgrain vellum banner up and down the page to balance all the horizontal elements.

I tried to layer on this page. Lots of patterned paper, more dear Lizzy chipboard and a big red shipping tag for journaling.  I think that may be my favorite part.

The stamp is from Kelly Purkey and I absolutely love it.  I brought a set of AC stamp markers with me because they were more compact.  The ink isn't super even, but I still like the way it turned out.

Even though Avi is not in focus, I had to scrap this picture.  How good is it??  Taken by my awesome friend Viji (or maybe her husband).  Seriously, I died.  I scrapped this one during a video chat #twittercrop session with Smitha and Anandi.  Anyone is welcome to join and we usually tweet about it before hand (though it does not get planned too far in advance these days).  Don't be shy about joining in!
The pink stripe paper just said pirate to me.  I tucked some fussy cut Amy Tangerine paper around the page.  And I used dear Lizzy die cuts for the journaling too.  And, another grey and gold title.  I love this page, but I think I may stick a few doilies on it as well when I get home.  We'll see how it goes.

This is the second page I did this week, but it feels seriously ... flat.   Still a work in progress.  I think maybe a border or some stitching?  I'll let you know how it goes. 

linked up at Purple Mailbox.  Getting in just under the wire for November I think.  Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
