Challenge 5 at Urban Antology

For Challenge 5 at UA, we had to create a kit with our own supplies and then create a least 2 projects with our kit.  Well of course I went a little overboard!  But I really learned something from this challenge.  I have SO many supplies that I don't even remember that I have!  And even old lines of paper can look "new" again if you put them together with other papers of the same theme or feel.  I really think I am going to start going through my stuff and making mini kits for myself.  The way I approached this process was to think of a particular scene in my head and then think of the colors and patterns and textures of that scene.  Then I went through my stuff and picked out items that had that feel to it.  I didn't try to matchy-match everything...I just looked at each paper individually.  By the end of the process, though, everything went together so great! 

I was thinking about apple picking and autumn harvests and all the food at Thanksgiving.  Then I thought of a cornucopia.  So I choose papers that reminded me of a harvest or autumn foods and foliage.  And this is what I came up with:

We had to do at least 2 projects with our kit, but I got a LOT more done!  Here are 2 LO's, one a two pager.  This two pager of Charlotte is one of my most favorite LO's ever!

And I even did a mini album!  This album is called "Blessings" and has some of the things that I am blessed with in it.  I have to add the journaling in yet....
