November Project 12

Wow, I had a lot of fun making this page, but there sure is a lot going on here - do ya think you can handle it? Here's the sketch for November's P12:
And here's what I made with my Counterfit Kit:

It's pretty busy, but I think I like it! The sketch had so many photos in it, but when I was looking through my November file, I hardly had any decent shots, and not a single one of me or Nolan! Must've been a pretty blah month, as November tends to be. So, I used up my quilted paper to replicate the idea of lots of small prints, then I added my favorite shots (matted so that they would stand out on the busy paper) and some heavy duty embellishments for a fun look that's quite different for me. Here's a close-up of the left side:
I wanted to mist a canvas key, so I used it as a mask on the patterned paper and really like the result. (Plus, now I can enter this page over at Scrapbooker's Anonymous!) The background paper has some light misting, and I also misted some paper doilies and layered them with cut up Maya Road trim and cute buttons. Here's the right side:

There's the misted canvas key, and an inked canvas lock under the photo of my mom with Brenna.

Well, the weekend is pretty much over, and I'm happy to say that the weather has warmed up considerably and everyone's a lot happier, especially the poor doggies! Yesterday morning, though, I learned of a mill explosion in Burns Lake, our old town!!! I spent a lot of time on Facebook trying to gather details, but it sounds like the mill is completely destroyed, 19 seriously injured workers and 2 missing. I can't even imagine what the people of Burns Lake are feeling right now, and my thoughts have been very preoccupied with this tragedy. Not only will the injured and missing individuals and their families be affected, but it's an incredible blow to the economy of the town. This will be felt by many for a long, long time.

  1. Another set of great membories.. I like the pages that have more than just one or two pictures on them.. makes me think I could get busy and do some the thought of doing my pictures ( I have large boxes of them) kind of scares me.. Take Care

  2. Love this layout! So many great embellies clusters...Love the misted key!

    I felt terrible to hear of that mill explosion too. Never lived there, but have lived in some one industry mining towns in the Kootneys. I know how lives are entertwined through the common employer. Now all that people will be out of work as well as dealing with the horror of the missing/deaths.

  6. I love it!!!! I absolutely love how you can put things together like you do!! That would be so out of the box for me, which I'm not very good at!! I'm really going to have to try that counterfeit kit thing!! maybe that would help me???
    We have another snow/ice day today, third in just over a week!! It has warmed up so much that it is raining/freezing rain so the roads aren't very nice. I feel bad because my students keep losing their review days (exams start later this week)

    I was watching the news last night about the mill explosion!! That poor family still waiting to hear if their Dad/Husband is still alive!! Hopefully it will be good news!!

  13. Hey Roxy - wow you did a really great job with that sketch. I agree it is bust but I love how you made it work. I agree that by matting the pictures they do stand out more. I have to admit the bear head in the flower rosette was really cute. As for what am I reading - right now I am catching up on my teen area. I just finished a book called Inbetween, the latest book of the house of night series, The 11th plague (not very good), The whole Mocking Jay series, clockwork prince, and a adult book The walking dead. Now off to work to pick something else out to read today! LOL

  19. Another great layout. Sheesh! How long has it been since I was on your site?! Bad me!!!
    PS - my brain has been churning on ideas for P12 this year. have you been working on anything? I was looking at my pictures from this month and they are woefully few! Most of my pictures are of layouts and cards! LOL! Don't think that needs to feature in a P12 layout!
