November Calendar pages

Can't believe I've managed to keep up the calendar pages this long.  I'm really not a diarist but I have enjoyed making the pages. So... here's October's calendar challenge finished


Here's my Hallowe'en in close up. I forgot it was a 31 day month so did a little fold out for the 31st


I was really pleased with the grave stone.  It's actually a cuttlebug folder pressed out with shrink plastic and embossed.  Note to self:  don't expect to emboss shrink plastic and expect the pattern to remain once you heat it!!!.  So instead I embossed it again (black shrink plastic), stamped my skull in the middle in white and then swiped white ink round the edges of the stone. Then when I shrank it the outline of the embossing remained.


It's getting to that time of year when photography lighting becomes a pain and there are some lovely purple shades in this which I just couldn't manage to show but you get the drift!

Brilliant, Carol. Love the shrink - tried that myself and was so disappointed that the shape didn't hold, lol - good idea, though :-)

Love your pages and am seriously impressed that you've kept to it. I'd have to catch up three or four weeks at a time cos I'm the world's biggest procrastinator. Love how you've incorporated the fireworks into your Nov pages. Really MUST try this next year! Lovely work x

Two more wonderful pages Carol. I don't know how you manage to keep making them and then writing up each day with everything else you do. What a happy mistake forgetting 31st Oct - the little fold-out is great and I love the tombstone. November is already looking very good.

Beautiful pages, Carol. It feels great when you follow something through doesn't it.Love the gravestone!
I did a 52 week challenge several years ago now with Emily Falconbridge & also a time project with a friend & I am so glad I saw them both through to the end.

Love your October pages, great use of the shrink plastic, I have that die and just love it, never thought to SP-ing though!!!

Know what you mean about the light, but Nov pages do look good.

Only one more month to go, you've done really well to keep up with it.
