Greetings my peeps, and happy middle of November already! Turkey Day is almost here, the stores are brimming with the flood of Christmas merchandise, and my DH is drooling as he watches TV commercials that show roasted turkey. He did tell me that he would settle for nothing but plenty of pumpkin pie though! LOL! This year we will cook. I've gotten in the habit of alternating years of cooking at home, dining out, and traveling to enjoy the holiday with relatives. This is also a month of mega birthdays in our family, so bringing all the loose ends together is an intricate affair.
I received an invitation from Addie over at Cool Scraps Digital to join this month's Quick Page Contest, so I jumped in and worked up my QP layout yesterday. We used the kit, HORIZON, by Mariscrap; and here is a preview of the kit . . .
This is a huge kit, the papers are beautiful, it's loaded with elements to play with which I don't believe are all contained in this preview. If you hop over to the forum at CSD and check out the Quick Page Contest thread or the Quick Page Contest Gallery, you'll be able to collect all the QPs from all the participants right there by direct download links. This is a great way to collect enough pages for one or two complete albums that match!! There are usually over 40 participants monthly in this CSD contest, so it's well worth your time to grab a cup of java and visit their site!!
I've made my QP in two sizes, an 8x8" and a 12x12" which are both included in my download. I got totally hooked on the little boat cluster element and built my whole page around featuring that element! I had no clue what I was going to do when I started, but that element was my inspiration for this page, and here's how it turned out . . .
DOWNLOAD HERE OR HERE
I'm providing two download sites in case I run out of bandwidth at one. Participants in this contest have until Nov. 20th to get their QPs uploaded at CSD, so check back after that date to be sure you collected all of them. They are usually available to download for the entire following month after the contest ends (i.e., these should be available through December). A poll will also go up in the forum after Nov. 20th so you can vote for your favorite QP. The winner gets a prize!! It's a really neat contest, I love the way it works, and we ultimately are all winners for getting to play with a beautiful kit! It doesn't get much better than that when you love to scrap!!
Leave some love if you download, it spurs me on to make more for you! Also, unzip promptly to find a special time dated discount coupon from me to you, good at my Etsy shop online, where I feature my handmade items. Do come by there for a visit too, especially if you're shopping for something unique for someone special, even a pet!
Thanks for stopping by! Talk again soon!
