I used some of the same photos of my in-laws, that I took with their film camera, to make another layout.  I used the November 15th sketch from Stuck Sketches and thought how cool it was to use 2 similar photos on the same LO.   

I think my mother-in-law was trying to hide behind her husband and in the photo in the back she is not really looking the camera.  Usually I would just throw that second photo away, but I decided it was perfect to use fro this sketch.  This LO also was a way for me to use up some of my stash and scraps.  I used some orange rub-ons that I have had from a kit and just hadn't used.  The papers were mostly stash.  The wood paper was the last piece of paper that I found to complete the challenge for Scrap Our Stash challenge #9.
So I was able to enter 2 challenges.  thanks Stuck Sketches for teaming up with Scrap Our Stash this month

Scrapbook Circle Inspiration

I created 2 LOs today for the Scrapbook Circle Challenges. 
The first is for the November sketch.  It has photos of my hubby and kids and one of  hubby's parents.  It was taken last November when we visited them for the holiday.  It seems that my father-in-law wants to take our photo when we have our coats on and are ready to go out the door to go home.  This time he wanted to also use up the film-------yes film-----------and so gave me the camera to take a photo of him and my mother-in-law.

The second photo is from my son's 16th birthday.  It includes my daughter who helped make the cake.  This Lo is fro the November stickers challenge.  I used most of my stickers on the right hand side of my LO all lined up.  Then I added a few more on the left.
I used my November Scrapbook Circle kit to create both of these LOs.  To see their kits and challenges click here.
