Urban Scrapbook's Monthly Challenge Kit - November

Welcome to November,
Sweater weather, short days, hibernation, and most importantly, a day of Remembrance. 

This month's kit at Urban Scrapbook features paper from Simple Stories along with some beautiful sparkly paper and doilies.  To check out the other design team's layouts, follow the link here.
 The pictures I found on Pinterest were absolutely PERFECT! The colors and the theme were exactly what I was looking for.  As I've said in the past, a great layout always starts with a great photo(s).

 above, you can get a closer look at the elements I created on the page. The poppy die wasn't a poppy  at all, it was a Hibiscus. I had this one in my stash for a while, I'm pretty sure it has been discontinued, but you could use any 5 petal flower for this and add the black center with a small circle.  The foliage is from Tim Holtz.
Thanks for stopping by,  Christmas Card making season is upon us, so I will be posting pics of my progress on that.  I think I'm leaning towards a more retro feel this year. Check back soon y'all.
