This month's kit is simply GORGEOUS and so romantic! The colors are rich and beautiful, perfect for that romantic picture of you and your hubby or a sweet baby (or your best friend's baby, in my case!).

Come back throughout the month and I'll share close up pictures and tip and techniques on each one of my layouts but now, without any further ado, are my layouts using the Swirlydoos November Kit, Autumn Rose!

"Pure Romance" Layout

Yes! I sure finished another wedding layout because this kit was so begging to be used with this picture of my DH and I at our wedding, 4.5 yrs ago! This layout was inspired by Gabrielle Pollaco. I made a heart and hand stitched around the border to give it a finished look. I used the gorgeous flowers from the Flowers Add On Kit to add just a pop of color (the add on kit matches the flowers in the picture!).

"The shortest distance between two people is a smile" Layout
For this layout, I 'borrowed' a picture of my best friend's beautiful little girl, Amy. Doesn't she look like a little doll here!? I turned the picture to B&W and used a bunch of flowers from the Flowers Add-On Kit and made the die cut paper shape with my Pazzles Inspiration.

"Happiness is only real when shared" Layout
This layout is based on the November Sketch and the pictures are of my mom's dog and her puppies, one of which stayed with us. I used the Main Kit only for this layout and did an Anatomy of a Layout step by step tutorial which you can find HERE.

Here's the November Sketch:
