I received the fabulous November kit from Magpie Club and have had such fun playing with it!!! Tara includes a magnificent assortment of goodies in her kits! I just can't get over all the unique and intriguing embellishments. This layout, "That Way" is based on the November Sketch designed by Julie Bonner over at Magpie. Check out that vintage viewmaster reel. I just love it!!! And that flower on top of it -came all done, just like that! I simply opened the brad up and attached the viewmaster reel to the back!

I began this layout of my Tin Man with a sketch by Helen Croft

I used this glittery scrap of fabric that Tara sent in the kits:

it just inspired the entire layout. My fabric edge was a little crooked after I got it on my layout so I added the little plastic ball trim that I found in my kit. A perfect fit!

The balloons are hand cut from a sheet of Webster's. I have seen them done like this on lots of other layouts so I thought I'd give it a try. It was HARD! I pop-dotted them so they look like they are flying~

Off to a day of watching the kids in sports: two soccer games, one basketball practice and one STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL GAME!!! Go team!

Hey Kristie, Love, love, love your layouts. The photos are fab, I am loving how you placed the fabric, the vm reel and the flower, it is fabulous.
I had to hunt back on your blog to check out your Wizard of Oz Halloween. It looked like a lot of fun, I think I will be coming over to your house next year!!! I must say I do love a theme.
Thanks for the kind words and for uploading your LO. Good Luck!!!
