November SOTM Blog Hop!

First- A suber big Happy Halloween to those of you that celebrate!  We do and my kids are super excited to show off their costumes.  Kaden will be a dinosaur and Addison is Super Girl.  I'll show pictures after the festivities are over :)

Now- on to this month's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we kick off November with some great ideas using " Cherish the Day" which has 44 stamps!  I noticed that all of the examples in the book used the set on cards or gift packaging... so I wanted to whip up a layout to show you!

Before I forget the technicalities... If you've arrived here from Pamela's blog-  you are in the right direction- but if you are starting the hop here at my blog- it's NO PROBLEM... just click the next blog in the hop at the bottom of this post and circle around that way. 

First... Let's look at my project!  I used the little month stamps to mark some of the photos in the layout.  The photos progress month by month going across and then down.  I originally planned to mark each photo but wanted to add in some workding as well.  There isn't much by way of embellishments on this layout- just the cork letters and milepost arrow... but I didn't want to detract from all of the photos!  Obviously I'm missing a few- I just need to get them printed.  The rest were already printed out and ready for a page - so not too shabby!

Here's a couple close up photos from this left page of the layout... to show the stamp images a little better.  I could put the date the photo was taken in the little circle... if I feel like it!  I do not delete photos from my camera card until all the photos have been scrapped (and yes I have them all saved elsewhere as well.) 
 So on my camera card is the date every photo was taken... but I don't think I  NEED that information- since I'm not including it for every single photo.

Hope you like this little showcase of the November stamp set (and the cute photos of my little guy!)

Next up is Gina's blog- go see what she has cooked up for you!
