Pass the kit_November Days

Gosh this month has completely gone so fast. And we are once again coming up to silly season.
So today's post is about some fun the owner of Pixel Scrappers challenged us with.
Its called pass the kit and we are put into groups based on our designer ability,I got to work with 3 lovely ladies and we all had alot of fun.
We were then given this color swatch and given several weeks to work on putting a kit together.
It calls for team work and our group pulled together and worked well, in fact we enjoyed it so much, we are discussing doing this again together.
And then after this comes the November blog train, and there are some awesome goodies in that one.

Before I go any further, I wanted to say a big thank you to the ladies who have left me comments, I really appreciate them :)

Anyhow I came up with November Days for my part of the kit. When I looked at the color swatch I just got an image in my head of looking out over a mountain in the evening when the colors change and its  like a painting.
I had tons of fun with this, so I really hope you enjoy it.  If at any time you would like to share something you have made using something I have shared, I would really love to see it. And I would be thrilled to post it up here and on my facebook page.

This is the color swatch we got.
I have again included the swatch with the kit.
And I made glitter styles for the very first time.
I have included the png files, as I am not sure to how to
make them for PSE. Sorry, I will try find that one out. 
As I said this is my very first time, so if there are problems, please let me know.

 And this is a preview of  some of what I made to go into the main kit. 

And the preview of the left overs so to speak :)

And lastly the preview of everything together and what you can download.
It consists of:
6 patterned papers
6 cardstock
1 squirrel cluster
1 frame cluster
I messy paint cluster
3 brads
6 buttons
5 flowers
1 ribbon
1 string
1 staple
2 fern leaves
2 other leaves
1 paper frame
1 owl dangle
1 squirrel
1 mouse
1 owl
1 stitched tag
and of course the glitters.
I am pretty sure there should be enough there for you to make something pretty with. 
But wait there is more :)
My fellow kit makers have even more goodies for you on their blogs, so be sure to click and visit them.

Autumn Art- The kit and clusters

So here is the rest of my parts to the Pixel Scrapper October Blog Train.
The kit contains 24 Elements and 6  Papers and 6 solids/cardstock
I have also included the color swatch for those who use photoshop.
There are 3 clusters and one border cluster in the cluster pack.
I really enjoyed working with these colors and even though I completely side tracked with the theme and ended up doing more Halloween  than Journal style, I really liked the end results.
I hope you enjoy!


Have a spooktacular day :)

Autumn Art-October Blog Train

Once again I am late, I am late for the correct blog train date.
But I do have some awesome goodies for you all.
The blog trains theme was Autumn Art and it was thrown out there do try Journal type theme.
I kinda got distracted lol. Sorry.
And I really need to practise things more, but that style is something I hope to be able to do in the not to distant future.
The second obstacle I hit was my external hard drive deciding with no warning it was just going to up and die.
I cried I really did. I have years worth of photos, layouts and everything I have ever made as well as all of my purchases on it.
However it will be going to someone who is brilliant at getting things from dead hard drives, so I am hoping I will get most if not all of it back.
And some of the stores reactivated my download links so that I could re-download those as well.
Some just chose to not respond at all, so guess I wont be spending any more of my money in those spots.
I was also all set to take part Digital Scrapbooking Studio's designer challenge.
But well I get another year now to practice and I shall try in the next one.
I did however grab a kit called Temper Tantrum by 2 Curly headed monsters and made a layout to fit the occassion. :)

                                                                  What do you think?
                                              I thought it fitted how I was feeling at that point.
 Now to the blog train stuff.  I started playing around and got distracted from finishing the kit on time.
But I am going to be finishing it as I am really wrapped with how it all came together.
So today I have two Quick pages for you to grab if your interested.
I am almost finished with a set of clusters as well, so I will post those once they are finished.
And of course the kit .  You know what they say, good things come in late packages lol.

Love to hear your feedback on these. And I hope you enjoy them, and they come in handy for scrapping your little gremlins.
Have a wonderful one and I will update again as soon as I have finished the clusters and kit.
