Hi dearies. Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week. And it's almost over! Woot! Today at Practical Scrappers, we are sharing the November sketch and we're sharing Thanksgiving-themed layouts! November is all about being thankful. I have definitely been tapping into my inner thankful and its been inspiring my last few scrapbook layouts. For this layout, I decided to feature my blessings.
I really wanted to scrapbook some of the most recent photos of our dear furry children: Murphy and Maria. I can't even begin to express my love for them. They are my heart, soul, and life. They end all of my bad days as soon as I get home, and they are great snugglers. (As I write this, I'm petting Murphy on the floor with my foot). Sometimes I remember how old our little Murphy is: nearly 12-years! And some days, his age really shows. It's really hard not to think that one day he will no longer be here to be my cuddle buddy. But I try my hardest to just enjoy every little moment with them I can.
I loved that the sketch featured three banners. I sewed the tiniest banners in three different lengths. The pennants were originally stickers, but I fussy-cut them while they were still attached to the sticker sheet, then sewed them and adhered them. I really loved that the stitching came out messy too, so I haphazardly adhered them to my layout.
I'm still enjoying working my way through my stash. The kit I have been continuing to use is Lilybee Designs (Autumn Spice). The ribbon and half cut flower above is both from my stash. And I loved the "My Blessings" sticker from the moment I saw it and knew it was the title of my layout. I really just love how it turned out.
Nothing bunny-related is complete without my dear Martha Stewart bunny punch. I punched two bunnies each and layered them. These bunny punches are my signature on any bunny-related project. I just love my bunnies! And here is the sketch for you to play along with.
