Happy Halloween

I hope that you all have a great Halloween today (if you celebrate). This day also means that october comes to an end and a new month is on its way.
A new month means new challenges at DSO, KimB already placed the november color challenge swatch and these colors are just perfect. I sure wish I had more time to do some other challenges, there are so many to choose from, check it out yourself.
DSO color challenge november
For todays freebie, I made a little thankgiving kit, another holiday we don't have :(
I did some "thanksgiving" research and found all sorts of turkeys, so I tried to make one myself, I found it hard to find the right textures, so its just a plain image, but I think it turned out pretty cute. I also found lots of tradition recipes (I'm gonna try some of them) so I also added a pumpkin pie. I hope you can use it. Happy scrapping.

Simply Soft kit

Thank you all for your comments, best wishes and thank you's, it means the world to me.
Now for some replies:
@ Linda W - I used pictures of special moments in her life.
On the front page I used a picture of the house were she was born.
Other pictures are: a picture of mom and her siblings when she was about 8 years old, her engagement picture, her wedding picture (1954), a picture of me and my 2 brothers as little children, wedding pictures of my brothers and myself on part 9, pictures of her grandchildren. On the last page (part 4) a picture of her as a baby and a recent picture.
The possibilities are endless, I hope this helps.
@ lovetocraftbetty - My email address is in the tou included in every zipfile.
@ yvonne - so is my blinkie :)
@ jody - I offered the "kit" in QP + parts, so if you have the qp's you have everything.

Today it has been raining all day, so no outdoors activities, great weather to do some scrapping.I had some photos begging to be scrapped :) so I needed new papers and elements.
It comes in two downloads, so get them both.
It's called ~Simply Soft~

Tricolori mini-kit

Today I had a some time left so I decided to scrap some photos made in Italy. I started with some papers and ended up with 2 scrapped pages and a mini kit to give away as a freebie. :)
I used this to scrap some pictures of old buildings and cathedrals, so it has a little vintage feel to it. Enjoy your freebie and happy scrapping.

Award nominees

Almost forgot to post the blogs I choose for the Proximidade Award I received from Ruth. It's just that I don't spend that much time on the internet, but here they are in random order:

I'm not gonna tell you whats on the blogs, you'll just have to visit them, I promise you won't be disappointed, all these blogs are really worth visiting.

It's a boy

I made a few adjustments to the ~It's a girl~ kit and ... tadaaa.. we have the ~It's a boy~ kit.
Now you can scrap your (grand) sons aswell. Enjoy and happy scrapping.

@C from Paris: When I think of something, I always make a note or a sketch on paper, so when I start my laptop it's just a matter of making my sketches and notes digital. For this kit I also used some elements I made some time ago. E.g. the bunny has been "living" in my laptop for months, just waiting to by used for the right kit.

Ruth (Thank you so much) gave me this great award on october5, it is called the "Proximidade Award" or "Friendship Around The World Award". Originally this award was written in spanish, but it translates to highlight blogs that are pleasing or special in some way, and also to extend the hand of friendship around the world. The rules are that once you receive this award, you must pass it on to eight other blogs.
Those 8 blogs will be posted here this weekend, I simple don't have the time right now to visit all the blogs.

Forest walk

I'm so glad that you leave comments on 4 shared and over here, so I know you like this qp + idea, for me its the perfect way to design, get my own photos scrapped and give you something to play with at the same time.
Complete kits take up so much time and I don't have that much time to spend, a day only has 24 hours :)
Today's QP + is a layout I made to scrap one of the photos taken last sunday when we took a long walk through the forest. I just love the forest in the fall, so many colors, so much to see (taking lots of pictures) we even saw some squirrels running up and down the trees. I love nature!!!
This qp + comes with the separate elements, including the little squirrel.
Enjoy your freebie and happy scrapping.

Quick Page +

First of all, thank you for all those sweet comments, here and on 4 shared, it means so much to me that people take a few seconds to tell me what they think. So thank you Laraine, Maryse, Mkikine, Karen, Rita, Liz, Sue, Mmikes, Januk, Mosey, Lisa, Van, Gloria, Linda W and all the other sweet people, whom I can't all mention here because this post would become to long.

Now todays freebie is one of my own layouts. I'm scrapping some zoo pictures and thought this one would make a nice qp +. I named it ~Little Rascals ~ and I think they are so CUTE!!
The pictures are only in the preview, in the zip you'll find the QP and the elements.

DSO Color Challenge October

Today you'll get my entry in the DSO October color challenge, hosted by KimB.
This months colors are very versatile. Having two sons I decided to make it a bit masculine, therefore I didn't use the pink just the green, yellow and purple.
