Movember and a FREEBIE!!

Get your moustache on! Are the men in your life sporting some interesting new facial hair? Movember is all about raising awareness for men's health issues. Just as October has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness, so has November become the month of the moustache... and raising awareness for prostate cancer and other men's cancers. From the official Movember website: "Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. Through the power of the moustache, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges." This is a cause that became very personal to Natasha this year, as her father was diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer early in the year. Thankfully, he is now officially cancer-free! Natasha wants to do her part by bringing attention to this cause, and hopefully raising some funds herself. All proceeds from the sale of Movember will be donated to the Movember foundation. ponytails_movember_preview   ponytails_movember_blogcollage buy gingerscraps 300pxbuy scraps n pieces

Thankful for Family

Meagan teamed up with Melissa Bennett this week to bring you the adorableness that is Thankful For Family. That fox, and those buttons and those flowers, and those papers! Oh my stars, beautiful! Rich, fun, fall colors, so many gorgeous elements and those super rich papers are just beyond words beautiful. Take a look for yourself: (the preview is linked)
and Meagan made some beautiful word art clusters:
and glitters for use in all programs:
Melissa also made a bonus alpha and journal cards that will be available in her store.
Or you can get all the fun add-on packs in the bundle!
Simply stunning, right? And as sad as it is, this is Meagan's last release at ScrapMatters. BUT don't fear, don't worry. Meagan's got something lined up that is a little slice of awesome. Keep an eye open for the details, they'll be coming soon!
Don't forget, the new releases are 20% off through Sunday.
I'll leave you with a little CT inspiration:

Jus Us {November} and a FREEBIE!!

November, the month between October's autumnal kiss and December's bitter cold.  It's sweater weather and leaves crunching on frosty mornings.  It's family get togethers and evenings curled up in front of the fire.  There's shopping to do and meals to prepare.  There's laughter and love and hometown football games.  It's a month full of activity that brings us closer to the ones we love and fills our memory jars with years of remembrances.  It's the season's last grasp at color before the world is blanketed in white.  So tuck into Just Us {November} by Wendy Tunison Designs,  filled with warm colors and soft textures to celebrate the warmth of November the whole year through.
