Nov 2012 SS Club - Memories

This month's Club is rich with papers and embellishments and I had a lot of fun choosing which ones to use. It reminded me of trips to the fabric stores of my youth. My mother sewed beautifully and made many of my clothes -- as well as some of her own. She especially enjoyed tailoring: linings, bound button holes and all. What patience! Since I made a circle from one of this month's brushes, and there are a couple of circular embellies here as well, I'm also using this LO for the 12-05 HNC challenge to use circles, something I love to see but seldom remember to use.

Love this layout. Mother and I had so many sewing projects around our house. Love the sewing embellishments. What a darling you were, Diane - still are!

Beautiful page! I have some of those same memories - this is a really easy club for me to use. I really like how you created the circle with the brush. It looks great.

What a very special photo. You have the best photos! Love your framing and placement of the photo against the materials as a work in progress. The large circle works so great with the rectangle photo, tape measure and little thread spool. Love the colors too. Just beautiful.

What a beautiful layout! I really love the patterned circle behind the photo -- it adds such a great accent to the main focal point, the picture! Great job. :)

Oh, Diane, this is beautiful. What a wonderful photo of you and your Mother. Your dresses are so sweet:) I love your cluster and the brush circle mat behind the photo is perfect.

Oh, Diane what a wonderfully special page! That sweet photo and the expression of joy on both your faces made me tear - what a special memory and you scrapped it gorgeously. I really like how you put your background together and the colors you used. Your embellishment cluster is lovely and I love how you used the rick-rack and circle to balance your page... Wow, this is just amazing...

I just love the circle you made from the brush - super creative! What a neat picture of you two; love how you're holding hands in addition to wearing the matching dresses:)

Congrats on your newsletter win!
