Book Club - Clique Kits

Hello blogging friends!

Clique Kits just revealed their November kit Tapestry and it is a beauty! It features the We R Memory Keepers Wildflower collection. One of my favorite papers from the collection is the one with all the houses. It's so perfect for family or neighborhood pics. Having just one sheet of this awesome paper I decided to fussy cut out a couple of houses so that I could use it on a couple different layouts. This photo is a pic of my book club buddies. This was taken a couple years ago when I threw a baby shower for one of our members. I came across the pic when I was gathering photos for another neighbor who is moving away.... all the way to Arkansas! We have been neighbors for 28 years! I am putting a scrapbook together for them so they won't forget us :)  Anyway... here is my layout ...

For me this is a very simple layout.... not much layering or clusters. I used this ledger paper for the background because it was perfect to journal on. I wanted to list some of my favorite books that we have read over the years. I like the neighborhood feel  it has...

I am not big on journaling, but really wanted to document some of the awesome books we have read. Are you interested in my list? I am an avid reader (or I should say listener because I listen to audio books when commuting to and from work. I also listen sometimes when I am scrapping. )  We chose a different book to read every month.... sometimes for very lengthy books we give ourselves longer. We have had some great discussions but really, out monthly gathering is more about connecting with friends, because all of these ladies have become very dear to me. It must be mutual, because even though 2 of these ladies have moved out of the neighborhood, they keep coming back for book club. I think Arkansas will be a little too far to come back though. :(     Some of my least favorites .... I couldn't even force myself to finish these .... Twilight, Fifty Shades of Grey, and Eat, Pray, Love
