Simply Obsessed's November Kit!

Hello and happy November! Can you believe it's November already? Crazy how fast time flies. I took my daughter to the park for a photo shoot in September and couldn't believe the photos were two months old already. When I received Simply Obsessed's November kit I knew it would be perfect for those photos and I love how these projects turned out. How could you go wrong with this kit though? The colors are awesome and I love the prima embellishments. And those Pink Paislee chip stickers? I am seriously getting those in every color available!

These pics are of my husband and daughter. They just melt my heart and remind me how lucky I am to have both of them. I cut out the flowers from the Pink Paislee paper to create a border. It actually took a lot less time than it looks because most of the flowers are connected. I also cut the prima flourish to better fit my layout and cut out one of the journaling tags. I added some ribbon and small letters from my stash to finish the layout.

The photo on this layout cracks me up! My dd is always smiling, laughing and being silly. Seriously I think I must have the happiest baby ever! She was in mid laugh when I took this picture. I made the flower from some of the left over paper and one of the cool buttons from the kit.

I had a lot of cut flowers left over from first layout so I used them on this frame. I bought the frame for a dollar at the dollar store (it is plain wood), painted it black, added the patterned paper, paper flowers and prima flowers. I love how it turned out and it looks great in my living room. This is a fast and cheap gift to make for anyone.

Thanks for looking! Have a great night.
