November is here, and that makes me think of Thanksgiving, and that makes me think of family. So here's the your theme for November:

CHALLENGE: Create a layout about family. It doesn't necessarily have to be Thanksgiving-related, just include family photo.

The challenge will through November 29. Please use a kit from the SAS-y store (or any freebie by an SAS designer) to create your layout, post to the My SAS-y Self gallery, and come back to this forum to post a link to the gallery so we can all ooh-and-aah over what you made!

This month's posting bonus kit is called "Dinner At 7," which has some lovely fall colors. Here's my contribution and the posting bonus for this challenge:

Okay, go scrap now - looking forward to seeing your family layouts!

Here is the layout I made for this challenge. I actually made this for my stepsons, because it has their mother in the photo before she passed away. (So it's my family, too, through my stepsons and husband.)

Hopefully this month I will have time to be creative. Family is a good choice.

What a great challenge! As a new mom, it was super easy to make a LO featuring my little family.:D

You mean my avatar pic? Nah, not a new haircut. That pic is actually a couple of years old and my hair is longer now. I just had to throw something in there quickly once I took my Halloween avatar down, and that photo was already small enough.

I love the posting bonus kits this month and had to use the ones I got early right away. These are pics of one of our family tree's branches. This would be the wild/crazy/fun side.

Oops, totally spaced out on the rules the first time and didn't use all SAS elements (or possibly any); here's the re-do, with ALL SAS items.

Happy December 1 - and that means this challenge is officially closed for this month. I've sent the posting bonus to everyone who submitted a layout in the gallery. (If you didn't do a layout but still want the bonus, it's available in the bargain bin.) :)

The SAS-y Self Challenge will be picked up by one of our new designers, Ellen. As much as I love doing this, I've accepted a new job at SAS - organizing our regular blog-hop parties - so I'm handing this challenge over for now.
