WOW! Wednesday {Housecalls by Scrappin' Madge}

November is a the month that always zooms by, I mean way faster than any other month!  I have documented the first 5 Grateful Days and there's just 23 days before Thanksgiving....please slow it down a bit.

Today, I'm sharing a few more of my 30 Days of Gratitude book.

Day Thirteen and Fourteen:
I love the gold accents on these pages.  I cut an oversize library pocket; a cutting file from Designs On Cloud 9, from Authentique's paper.   I additionally included an extra pocket using a mini chevron bag.  The gold rosette is a mini cupcake liner, the swirl is a cut out of a leaf I used on Day 15.  I stamped the day on a wood veneer circle, but I stamped the wrong day! LOL  So I covered it with the correct day and added an epoxy sticker...really like the extra dimension.    I wrapped some hemp cording I purchased almost two years ago, it has a bit of gold, perfect for the page.
On Day 14, I  used the photo overlays from the Hello Gorgeous kit and used them to create pocket; loving the gold frames, ties my pages together.   I also used stamps, pins, wood veneer, sequins from my stash.   

Day Fifteen and Sixteen: These pages feature the bonus page from Teresa Collins, Giving Thanks.  I have used every bit of this page, including the name of the paper line as a sentiment. 

My album measures 8x8 and will be using the Cinch to bind.  I did use 6-8 sheets of additional cardstock.  I choose to go with a slightly bigger size, but you can easily create a smaller book with the contents of the kit.    I will be sharing more pages this week. :)
