Hey Guys…SP here (and Kylie, too – just below my check-in, lol…BUSY week!) I’ll try to keep it short-and-sweet today…since Kylie and I are combining the check-in post with the DECEMBER TEMPLATES ‘share’! But, even with the holidays upon us and all of the busy-ness we are all dealing with…we still must keep scrapping and not get behind on our project SCRAP pages! We are ALMOST ALMOST there…so stick with it and before you know it, we’ll all be admiring our final, printed, 2011 albums - YAY!
I’ll admit…I did not have the ‘extra’ time (seriously, WHAT is THAT? lol) to work on my November layouts…but I went ahead and ‘made’ time because I really, really want to stay up-to-date…and I know that December will only get busier and busier, lol! So, I tried not to ‘fuss’ over my pages too much…and just got them done! Boy, did that feel good, too :o) Of course, being in the States…many of my pics for November were about Thanksgiving and the holiday season! I have a feeling many of yours will be, too! We also did a bunch of fun baking and candy-making…so I had to include pics of those, as the little man was a huge help with everything – and I hope he will one day enjoy looking back on the memories of time spent in the kitchen with mommy :o) So…without any more rambling…here are my pages…
And you know I have to share more inspiration with you! I won’t bombard you with toooooo many ‘spreads’…but must include a few faves from the project SCRAP gallery! Here goes…first up, we have jltanner’s GORGEOUS pages! She and I were on similar wavelengths with our kit choices and design, lol! I think what stood out to me most…was the large pic of the Thanksgiving tree – LOVE it! Of course, everything else is perfection, too – but that really caught my eye! Fabulous as usual…and THANK YOU for sharing :o)
Next, we have Kylie’s FUN and BRIGHT and CHEERY pages! I love the contrast from the rest of our ‘spreads’! Being in Australia…she is experiencing an entirely different climate and season…and it really shows on her November pages :o) ALMOST makes me wish for SUMMERtime, lolol…ALMOST! So many wonderful photos and memories on these pages…love it all – THANKS, Kylie!
And, finally – we have sweet Kim’s November pages! Lots of great photos and events and memories took place…and as-per-usual, she scrapped them beautifully! The large photo of all three kids is just TOOOOO CUTE, Kim – thank you bunches for sharing with us!
Well, that’s it for me…now going to pass the post on to Kylie…you are going to LOVE the new templates – can’t wait to see your layouts in the gallery! :o) ENJOY and as always – THANK YOU for joining in the FUN with us…HAPPY SCRAPPING! XOXO –SP
THANKS SP for the awesome check-in…as always!! :o) HELLO all – Kylie here and I thought I’d join in with today’s blog-fun too. And YES, I am getting in a little earlier than usual with the latest (and last - can you believe it!!) of our monthly 2011 projectSCRAP templates…we only have the cover to go! It is holiday time and the blog will be taking a short break (more on that at the end of the week!) so today is the perfect day to share the templates alongside SP’s update and some november inspiration!

Be sure to post your completed December pages (and any earlier months, if you haven’t already done so) in the project SCRAP GALLERY! As always, can’t wait to see how you work with these latest project SCRAP templates and all those gorgeous Shabby Shoppe products! :o) We’ll be back next month with a December check-in (don’t wanna miss that one!), the album cover to complete your wonderful project, and to announce projectSCRAP 2012!! YAY! Until then, have fun scrapping the new templates (and photographing, of course – lots of special moments to capture in December, no doubt)!
