I was doing a bit of perusing this afternoon while the kids were watching Scooby Doo and these are some fun projects you can buy using our Life's A Hoot fabric on Etsy. I love to see what people create!
It's Debbie Raymond with November's Scrapbook Challenge. I can hardly believe I'm writing this, but it's true - this is our last challenge - our TENTH layout of the "10 in 2010" series. We've been celebrating EVERYDAY LIFE this year, and whether you created layouts and submitted them - or not - I hope you enjoyed thinking about the little things that make life good.
Which brings me to our theme for the month of November: Life Is Good, Every Day. As you think about what you might put on your page, please note that one of the requirements for this challenge is that you use lots of smaller-sized photos. For my layout, I chose to feature the faces of my family. I love the sweet little faces of my grandkids (especially on their cute school pictures for this year) and the beautiful (or handsome) faces of the rest of my family. It was fun to arrange and re-arrange the photos grid style and then add in the darling Adornit embellishments.
So, for this month, I challenge you to create a layout about something that makes life good for you. Maybe it's the scenery where you live or your job or your hobby. Maybe your layout will be about books you read or foods you fix. I can't wait to see what you create!
This month's challenge requirements are:
a grid of small-sized photos
glitter and/or rhinestones
These elements are required on your layout to be entered in our prize drawing. You have until December 10, 2010 at midnight MDT to create your page and post it to Adornit's Facebook page so we can all enjoy!
From all of us here at Adornit to all of you, have a very Happy Thanksgiving and...happy scrapping!
p.s. Here are the links to the Adornit products I used:
I just have to show you this adorable quilt made by the talented April Rosenthal. She is a pattern maker with a shop titled Prarie Grass Patterns - go check it out! This is a quilt she created using our Life's A Hoot Fabric collection. I love the modern design and my favorite part is the creative use of ribbon.
So if you're looking for a new quilt to start - this is the one!
I know that Halloween was several weeks ago but I wanted to show you these cute pictures of the boys in their Halloween costumes. Boston was a scary Vampire and Daxton was Frankenstein. It felt like a week full of Halloween fun between several parties and dressing up for school. By the time we actually got around to Trick or Treating Daxton had enough and we had to beg him to put his costume on Saturday night. It was a great holiday with great memories!
Hi it's Debbie Raymond, Adornit editor, on the blog today telling about a fun weekend I had with my daughters Suzie and Becky (and Beck's baby Emmett too!)
Suzie came from Las Vegas for a few days to visit. Becky came from SLC to be part of the fun...starting with lunch at Costa Vida! (The next day these two lucked out and got free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches from Logan's newest fast food store that is just about to open.)
Becky and Emmett shared the Sweet Pork Salad. The tortilla strips on top were perfect for munching on then dropping on the floor.

Then we were lucky enough catch all the McMullin girls (the original Adornit girls!) at the local Holiday Boutique gift show. The Adornit booth was huge and filled with stuff - which was flying out of there as the days went on!
I had been very excited to see the Adornit booth because Alison - with her fun, creative fashion style - has ordered wonderful bags, wallets, jewelry and hip, unusual, boutique-y style clothes. I love watching her go through the boxes and happily showing me the unique things that came in. (You can see their cute sister-in-law Stacy peeking around the corner.)
Here's Jackie at the register keeping all the customers happy. Jackie's the perfect model for Adornit clothes. She's wearing her darling flower headband, dress, scarf, necklace, belt with flower, and purse.
The booth looked awesome - jam-packed with "stuff" including darling handmade items (a rare thing to see nowadays) such as these Christmas wood plaques for holiday decorating. Made by Alison, the wood decor pieces are adorable in real life with glitter and dimension. They'll be sold at the store - Carolee's Creations on north Main just south of the Hyde Park stoplight where the shopping fun continues.
Be sure to join us on Facebook - Alison posts new-merchandise updates and creative ideas.
Just thought I would share our November Busy Women Kit. I love that four drawer box that comes in the kit. Janet did such a good job decorating it. If you haven't checked out our kits yet I highly recommend that you do - the amount of product in each kit is amazing!!
I had the fun opportunity to take pictures of our friend Brooke and her fiance Cody. We luckily were able to get out before a big storm hit and blew all the leaves off the trees. Here are some of my favorites.
