Hi everyone . . . welcome November!  I can't believe that we turned the clocks back this past weekend and it's getting dark at 5:00 PM now.  It's been awhile since I blogged - I have missed it and scrapping.
Getting dark earlier gives me a little more time to scrap, so I decided to make a page to honor my family. especially my daughters and the holiday season.

Also, today is the first day of the new Challenge YOUrself challenge:

I had an excuse to use more of my beautiful Simple Stories "Vintage Blessings" collection:

Here is my finished page:

Since the challenge asks us to use sprays and inks, I sprayed my clouds with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst "Blue Hawaiian Blue" mist and my sun with their Starburst "Yellow Rose of Texas" spray.  I also inked my die cut trees and had fun sprinkling my white background with various shades of blue and white.

Here is a different view
And a close up:

This page is so special to me because it's all about family, especially me with my beautiful daughters.  And I sure did have fun making it for this month's Challenge YOUrself challenge, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge this month!
