November 1st DT Reveal and November's Challenge

I hope everyone had a great Halloween. Now that it's November, time to reveal the DTs project. I love autumn, I love the rich colors of Fall..the browns, oranges, yellow. I just think that Fall is too short of a season. After Halloween is over, christmas is just around the corner. Most of the stores just skip thanksgiving all together and I'm sure they're all decorated for Christmas already.

The Design Team and I made sure that we don't forget Autumn and Thanksgiving as we all have a lot to be thankful for..

I am thankful for all my scrappy and blog friends who always inspire me to create and I hope I will always be able to share my creations with you. No matter where you are, which country you live in, you are always welcome here on our blog and you are welcome to join our challenges or our giveaways.

Without futher ado, here are their projects:

Aymee Gandy

Jing van Opstal

Lisa Novogrodski

Renea Harrison

Aren't the projects gorgeous? I am so proud of my DT team because they always work so hard to make something special with the tags..Thank you Guys!!
