What a nice surprise!

I love an unexpected, pleasant surprise. So when Paper Popsicles decided to release our Design Team projects for the November kits early as a little pre-Halloween gift, I was delighted. Mostly because it answered my question, "What am I going to post today?" But also because I can't wait to buy the Jolly By Golly kit (the one I didn't get to work with this month...the one that includes all those yummy Cosmo Cricket papers) to make Christmas cards -- now that I'm in the Christmas spirit and all. (wink, wink)

As for the kit I *did* get to work with, well, it rocked! It's called Seasons of Color. Admittedly, we don't get a lot of "fall color" here in Texas. But when I put my not-so-fall-colored photos with these vibrant fall papers, it actually makes them seem a little more fall-ish. Take a look...





And here are the three cards I made with the kit:



The specialty papers in this kit are amazing: the scalloped circle and the lace acorn paper are from Little Yellow Bicycle, and the orange doilie paper is from BasicGrey. I'm pretty happy with myself for making ONE sheet of the BasicGrey paper last through two layouts and two cards...that has to be some sort of a record, doesn't it? (Well, at least for me it is.)

Photos of all the November kits and projects are in the Paper Popsicles Gallery. Check it out!


Thanks for looking!
