Hello...another month.

I am in disbelief that Christmas is only 40 days away. WOW

The years seem to go by quicker and quicker.

Here is the second to last installment of the HELLO 2014 series.
If you haven't looked these over, you so need to.
I love these mini kits that are themed to each month.

This month is all about remembering the many things we are thankful for, spending time with family, slowing down from the busy summer time, relaxing and warming up by the fire, and getting ready for the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. 

Nibbles Skribbles really has designed a winning kit here. 
The color combination in this kit has some warm fall colors and she brings in the rich tones of winter time. I love how they compliment each other.
Pop over to her store to pick this up, or to check out all the Hello 2014 series.

Looking at all the details of this kit.

 Perfect page for our family's tree hunt trip...on a warm November day.


Nibbles has added a great little add-on to the Hello collection. Perfect to making your own calendars or simply adding custom dates to your pages.

I seemed to skip right over last month...but you should not!

Next up is...

Many local fire stations hosts open houses where the kids can come and climb in the trucks, meet real fire fighters and learn about fire safety. At The Fire Station isn’t so much about fighting fires as it is about visiting the station, seeing the awesome things and having fun! If you’ve been to the station for a visit, have a kid that loves playing dress up or wants to be a fire fighter – this kit is perfect for you!

I couldn't resist making a pae from a trip to Legoland.
Perfect kit for the Fun Town Fire Academy.

Well, not too busy, but more like being computer free activity busy.
It has been nice....but I feel like I am behind on some things now.

This past weekend

 lend themselves well to back to school time too.

I love the warmth it brought to my Christmastime pages.

Social Media

Double Tap if you love

We live in a world of social media. From status updates, to sharing our thoughts in 140 characters or less to quickly adding filters to photos to share with friends and family - the lives of our family and friends are simply a click away. Not only are we sharing our everyday moments via social media, for many it's a source of news, entertainment and even work - Social Media Mania is taking over - and so is this kit!

Take a look at whats inside....

...and the Bundle.

For my inspiration page, I documented the DAY IN THE LIFE page I did back in May. Every day scrapbooking is not something I do very often, so this is kinda fun to see what I did that day. I shared my day on Instagram. If you would like to follow me and see more of my days, I'm ColorCountryScraps. :)

Make sure to check out Nibbles Skribbles' blog for a freebie.
