DD’s Birthday Party at Home – Kaisercraft November Sketch#2

Each Saturday, Kaisercraft features a sketch challenge on their blog and you have until the end of the month to enter your take on one or all of the sketches for your chance to win an awesome prize pack! 1st place wins one of Kaisercraft’s new collections (approx $50 value) and 2nd place wins a Kaisercraft scrap pack that includes new products (approx. $30 value). I decided to give it a try and went with sketch# 2 for November since it worked well with the photo I wanted to scrap of my daughter’s 4th birthday and I could also easily use the grungeboard alphas I was sent by Marie for this week’s feature on the Firefly Expressions blog. I was sent a sheet with the letter P. After considering the various options of what to do with the letters, I decided to use as many as I could by flipping them around. I turned 2 upside down to make D’s and flipped one over and turned it upside down as well to make the B. Here’s what I came up with for the sketch using the grungeboard alphas as well:

All Bundled Up – Sketchy Thursdays

This week’s sketch 11.17 at Sketchy Thursdays was perfect for this layout of Matthew all bundled up to play in the snow back in Feb 2010. A little before Christmas last year, I took the kids with me to ACMoore and they had some arts and crafts set up for the children to do and were giving out snowflake shaped, glittery felt ornaments. When we got home, Matthew asked me to scrap a page for his book with it. 😀 Here it is a year later and I’m finally getting around to doing just that! lol

This week’s feature on the Firefly Expressions blog is Pebbles, Inc. and we were given a half set of foam stamps to work with. Mine included this great snowflake piece that used with white acrylic paint for the bg of my lo.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

Matthew’s felt snowflake is in upper right corner of the page. Isn’t it cute? 😀

Materials:

Bazzill Black Cardstock
Bo Bunny Midnight Frost pp
White Acrylic Paint
Prima mini alphas
Pink Paislee Cushies foam alphas

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Premium Craft Glue

Tools:

Pebbles Shape-a-Roonies foam stamp
