Here's this month's inspiration kit, "City Park" by Cocoa Daisy:
The very top paper in my parcel was a cute dinosaur print from Echo Park "Little Man" and it struck me as being a similar style of whimsical print to the trees and acorns in the Cocoa Daisy kit. Unsurprisingly, it became the starting point of my November kit . . .
As you can see, I've taken the kit from an autumn theme to more of a boy/summer theme. There's plenty of Echo Park here, as well as "Little Man" there's "Anything Goes", "We are Family", "I Love Sunshine" and "Sweet Summertime". Then there's a sprinkling of "Shine" from Maggie Holmes, and some token October Afternoon "Travel Girl", Simple Stories "I Am", and "Memorandum" and "Cedar Lane" both from Pink Paislee.
When it came to alphabets, I had the sticker sheet from "Little Man", so that was an obvious choice, and I've added a set of black Thickers. The box of wooden icons (from Kmart of all places!) has a similarly whimsical feel, and using some of them might help me work out how to store the rest!
Wanting to keep the embellishments simple, I've added some washi and bakers twine . . .
and I plan to leave my boxes of buttons, brads and eyelets out on the desk, in the hope that I use some of those too!
