Two For Tuesday!

It's not that often that I have two DT reveals to share and I'm excited that I have two to show you today!
We have a new sketch challenge over at Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Challenge, and I have another layout showing casing the November kit from Artful Delight!
I just love how this layout turned out!  The papers from Teresa Collin's Giving Thanks collection were perfect to highlight this photo of my dad's mother, my Nana.  I used the new sketch over at Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Challenge, created by our own Diana!
I rotated and flipped the sketch to fit the design for my layout.
Since the Spring I have been purchasing kits from Sweet Peach Crop Shop and I used their November Juicy kit, filled with Teresa Collin's Giving Thanks papers for my layout.  I just so happened to have some of Teresa Collins Welcome Home Chipboard which worked perfectly with the Giving Thanks papers.  The flowers and bling are part of the kit.  I added a few $1 finds from Michaels.
I also have a layout to share that I created from the November kit at Artful Delight.  The kit contains the entire Lilac House collection by Fancy Pants. I've managed to get four layouts out of this kit along with a card, and still have some paper left to do another layout or possibly a card.  One of the sheets in the kit is bright glitter cuts, and when I first saw it I thought it would be perfect to use on a layout of my home.
I used the  11-11 sketch over at Sketchy Thursday for this layout.  I love their sketches, and it's been awhile since I've been able to play along with one of their challenges.

I had a lot of fun this past weekend working on various projects!  When the mood hits me I take full advantage of it and create!  I managed to get three layouts and a card done this weekend!  Here is a little sneak peak of one of my other layouts:

On a further note, I ended up back at the doctors today.  I really thought I was feeling better, but starting feeling my energy drop on Sunday.  I am now on my third round of antibiotics.  Fortunately I am not as sick as I was a month ago, but am truly discouraged that I can't get  the congestion to clear up in my head and chest, along with the fluid in my ears!

Hope all of you are feeling well and are busy being creative!  I need to catch up on visiting your blogs!
Thanks for stopping by!
