Invest in Forever

I can't believe I am already sharing my last layout for this month, using the November Kit from Artful Delight!  It was really packed full of goodies, and I completed 4 layouts and still have some products to spare!  For this layout, I used a lot more of the Crate Paper chipboard pieces that were included in the kit.  They are so pretty and add a lot of great dimension to your pages or projects.



 
I was able to use this Kit for a large variety of layouts, but I wanted this one to be fun and girly.  Back in September our oldest little girl received her first "big girl" Bible at church.  There were 18 First Graders!!  She has a special little group of friends and they were all able to take part in it together, so of course all of the Scrapbooking mommies had to get a group photo!!  :)  I still have the first full Bible I received from my Grandparents back in 1980, when I was 5 years old.  So I was happy to see that our daughter was so excited about her upcoming Bible presentation.  She talked about it for a month!!

I can't wait to start playing with our December Kit!!  It will include some Christmas and Winter goodies, so make sure you check it out and get one ordered for yourself!!
