Oct DT Layouts - Before it's Nov! ;)

Yeah, yeah, I've been neglectful, I know. Things have been crazy busy around here but hopefully it will start slowing down soon. This weekend we'll close the outside for winter, store the lawn furniture, build the new tempo for the boat to get it out of my parking spot for the winter ;) trim back the bushes in the gardens and make sure all the Christmas lights still work (yes, we leave them up all year, you can't see them though when you're not looking, I promise! ;)) and plan what we're going to do with the new railing on the deck, I'm envisioning spruce boughs with lights wound around and maybe a wreath or two, Hubby, not so impressed. ;)

Sometime soon it's time to go through the clothes in our house, hubby and both have so many, at least half that neither of us wear...it's all going to Sally Ann. Hopefully this weekend, too!

Last but not least, here are my Oct DT layouts..better late than never, right? :) October's DT kit was Basic Grey Peripery - oh my, I loved it!!!! The colors are gorgeous and really, can you go wrong with Basic Grey? I don't think so! :)

This photo has been hanging on my parents wall for years, it's a picture of my dad and his parents back when he was just a little tyke...this pp is perfect for heritage type photos!

We had a challenge this month to use 10 photos on a layout...after most of us grumbled about using 10 photos, we all got down to business and I'm extremely happy with what I turned out - and I even did a 2 pager, something I rarely do these days! :)

For fun, I did a little card with the rubs and scraps that I had left over...yummy!

Last but not least was my Catch Phrase challenge for this month. Eye on the Prize was the phrase to use as your inspiration. I took photos of my uncle when I was in Nova Scotia in Sept and couldn't wait to use them on a layout. He's been wanting a "real" cowboy hat for years and finally got one this year when they went to the Calgary Stampede, he's looking very cowboy'ish to me! :)
