The ScrapRoom November "Flavor of the Month" and "Double Shot" Kits

Hello all!
On the blog today sharing with you the beautiful
 November ScrapRoom
"Flavor of the Month" and Double Shot" kits 
and the projects I created with them.

First the November "Flavors of the Month Kit"
This kit includes:  Crate Paper "Open Book", Gossamer Blue "On My Desk"
Bella Blvd  "Hello Autumn & Simple Stories "Sweater Weather"

I used Crate Paper's Open Book products to create my first layout.  I love the variety of fun and cool patterns in this collection as well as the embellishments, which matched well with this photo of my granddaughter. 
"Shine Bright Like a Diamond"

 I have been wanting to scrap these photos of my great niece, Dominique, but I have had a problem finding paper I wanted to use because her cheer uniform is red, black gold and white.   Problem solved:  I really liked the wood veneer words that came in this month's kit which were perfect for using in the title work for my photos, so I turned them to black and white so I could use the words and these very pretty "Hello Autumn" papers by Bella Blvd:
"You Want To Know Who is Lovely, Amazing, and...."

 The cute photos of my great nephews and the Simple Stories " Sweater Weather" paper and embellishments in the FOTM really worked well together:
"Piles of Autumn Smiles"

 My next layout was created using the Simple Stories "Sweater Weather" products in the kit,
The ScrapRoom November Sketch by Page Maps
and photos of my beautiful friends Avis and Kenny taken one afternoon while we were all out enjoying happy hour in Portland.  

 LOVE LOVE LOVE the beautiful papers from the Crate Paper "Open Book" in the FOTM Kit and I was asked to complete a double page (TSR Recipe Card).  The gold glittered Thickers are from the TSR November Extra Embellishment kit and and the black Thickers and twine are from my personal stash.
The butterfly and tabs are from a previous TSR kit:
"Hello, You Are Toadlly Awesome"

More loveliness found in the November Double Shot Kit:
The November kit includes 
This kit includes WRMK "Shine" and Heidi Swapps "September Skies"

This first layout created with the super cute Heidi Swapp, September Skies" which had the perfect paper and embellishments for this photo of my 3 year old granddaughter removing the training wheels from her bicycle:
"Lovely Powder Puff Mechanic"

And for my last layout I used the WRMK's " Shine" products found in the kit whicho complimented this fall photo of my nephew and his beautiful family:
"Our Blessed Family"

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you stop by
