November Musings

Just as October is breast cancer awareness month,  November has the tradition of Movember, bringing awareness to men's health by promoting the growth of upper lip adornment. You'll see normally clean shaven men trying to sprout lip fur all around town and although it is indeed a worthy and serious cause, it is probably what has given form to one of the cutest design trend - the moustache.

We were shopping in Accessorize the other day when Miss C was tickled pink by a moustache pencil and had to have it. I took a few pics of her and did a simple layout and I thought how appropriate to post the layout for November.

I "Moustache" You A Question
A very simple layout with just a few elements dotted around the page. I love the red polka dot background that contrasts so well with the greens and golds. I love the gold frame which give that something extra to the page. The framed moustache was from my crop buddy who was working on papers that had the moustache as well.
 I freehanded the moustache for the title before popping it up with foam squares. I wanted the word question in the same lettering but felt it didn't fit in the space I had, so I used lots of different question marks instead.
Cute stars popped up around the page to add balance.
 Yes, you are. To me, you will always be the cutest.

Products Used
Papers, chipboard and die cuts from My Mind's Eye Jubilee collection
Banner shaped alphas from Pink Paislee Pen Pals collection
Mini circle letters from Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus collection
Questions marks from various alpha packs

Hope you enjoyed looking. Need to do a flowery page soon. What do you think?
