This is a super quick one - it probably doesn't look like it was quick, but I used a template so I didn't have to add much other than papers and a few elements. Template - 'Layer Works 1113' by Studio Double D. Kit - 'Shabby Chic' by Ooh La La Scraps. (The Layer Works templates are great for when your mojo has gone missing and you want to get a page done quickly for double points! )
Points: #6 fall colours, #7 photos, #8 multi generation, #13 kit, #15 patterns (3), #21 round up, #22 wood, #23 cluster (4), #24 tie me up, #25 digital, #28 pen & tell it (3), #39 Metallica, #41 someone you love, #46 leaf (3), #50 pick one use one, #51 stamp, #52 way back, #59 banner, #60 title-r-ific, #64 save the date, #65 rectangles, #66 square, #70 unfinished album, #75 layer up (4), #82 journaling + #2 Double Dip (39) = 78 points
Here is my next dump from the weekend crop. These are pages for the album I am making for dd's family for Christmas. I started it in July, but had not been back to it since, so really happy to cross this project off my to-do list.

I worked on finishing some Thanksgiving cards today completely forgetting that it was a double dip day (maybe I can sneak a few more in before I call it quits for tonight!)
My friend's mother had asked for "thankful for you in my life" cards and so far this was what I came up with. They're all z fold cards using the sketch and instructions from Call me Crafty Al's Sheetload of Cards for Oct. A bit tricky to photograph, especially in the afternoon light, sorry. There are 11 because I am random!
These were both really easy and very challenging (because I am messy and my desk is small). Heat embossing is something I need practice with, as is space management on my desk. I had originally tried heat embossing the small sentiments on dark brown cardstock but they didn't turn out too well so I went back to my old friend Versafine Onyx Black and called it good. The papers are from an old Pebbles pad that Joann's has carried for 3+ years (I have bought 3 of them!) Fall colors are not really my thing but I like this Woodland Forest line.
I started these on Sunday, planning and cutting my papers. Then did my stamping and some matting yesterday and today I was able to put all 16 together! I’m really happy with this card. It’s a card sketch from the gal that does all the 6x6 paper pad videos (Kristie M). I also used a 6x6 pad and the Santas were a pack of 20 for a couple dollars at Hobby Lobby.
I have three different pattern papers on them, but the other two images are two large. The card base is off white/cream and layers are gold and the card looks better in person I will add my points in a few.

Sharing is getting hard because our other laptop died this week! I'm having to borrow my DS's laptop now! The other issue is sunlight to take photos! We've had many rainy gloomy days that were too dark, and often I'm away from home for almost all the daylight hours.

Linda, your Christmas cards are simple and elegant. I like the glossy look to the greetings. Were those puffy stickers? Or did you use Glossy Accents to pop them up like that?
gmcwife1, I admire people who can do a set of cards all from one design. And this is a great design. I like the pp on the bottom and then the plainer strip to support the focal and the greeing. Very pretty.
This is my last one for the month, because it's only 30 minutes away from November here! This LO is based on the right hand side of the Sketchtember 27 sketch. I used the 'Up To No Good' kit by Cathy K Designs. The layout is for the "The Plane The Plane" challenge, and also the Wacky Holiday - Aviator Day challenge. It's about when I was taking flying lessons (pre mortgage and children, when I had an exciting life haha!).
I am caught up to this last page. I'll try to catch the rest in the morning. So many wonderful creations have been posted this month!
Linda, I love your Thomas Train page. My grandson loved Thomas and I think your cluster is great.~ Your Nessie is cute and I love the little Lego man!~Beautiful photos of your walk around campus. Fun that you could pick pecans. I love that background paper and the woodgrain.
teacherlisa, I am so impressed by your writings in your Just Write journal. I really need to do this too. Such thoughtful things you are recording. I am enjoying it. Tender thoughts about being self sufficient and helping others, then needing help yourself. Great job on the subject of abundance. Heartbreaking journaling on “until we meet again.” Hugs.~ Great job on the things you love. Love the photos of your big grown up boys. It’s amazing how fast they grow and what friends they are when they are adults.
KikiPea, I love your Snow page. A skiff of snow is still snow. I love your clusters. You should teach a class! They are always so perfect.
dasmith2, I love the woodgrain you have used as background on your two pages. Beautiful leaf clusters on HELLO. I love the stamped flowers and the sweet photos on Love This. Great pages.
Happy Halloween! I squeezed in some assembly line heat-embossing and card making this morning before going to a corn maze for the first time.
The cards are from the August Sheetload of Cards sketch by Call me Crafty Al. Very straightforward, and a nice way to show off the papers, I think. I printed the smaller sentiments using a font I had on my computer. so they could say exactly what my friend's mother asked for. The thankful stamp is from a Kelly Purkey set I was unsuccessfully trying to destash that turned out to be perfect for this purpose, once I chopped it in half. I made 15 cards, but there are 2 designs that I duplicated. The second picture of 4 shows the ones that might need something more - some kind of embellishment, maybe some die cut leaves? (I always notice that after I take a photo. Sigh)
