November 11.

Finished this layout yesterday. It's about November 11 or Sint Maarten (Saint Martin). This is an important day for most of the kids in the Netherlands! With a lantern (selfmade at school) they go by the houses and sing a song for the people who are willing to open the door. And then they get a treat (candy, fruit, chips and even money). So, I suppose it's a bit like Tric or treat in the USA, but without all the scary things and the costumes.

The pictures aren't great but I love the expressions on Zander's face!
I'm not sure if I also should make some embroidering lines on the pictures. I think it would look a little bit messy, overdone. What do you think?

By the way: this isn't a great picture of the layout. You can hardly see the embroidery lines. In real it's more present.

Translation of the Dutch line: November 11 is the day that my light may shine. It's one of the songs the children sing.
Supplies: pp (BG), black sticker letters (market), embroidering thread, sewing-thread, black DVD-writer (Pilot: love these to write with, esp. on pictures).
