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:

This is a layout I made based week 17’s sketch on The Paper Variety.

On the first day of school, Madison was so excited to finally be going to “big kid” school…until we got there. Then she was terrified. Christian was only 2 months old, and I had him, Matthew and these two with me in the car. I was trying to figure out what to do when Alex asked me if he could take her in and show her around. Phew! My hero! 🙂 He told her school is all about your attitude. If you act confident, tough and smile a lot, everyone assumes you are confident and fun to be around and they won’t mess with you…therefore, my title. For this lo, I used the Wonderfall diecut paper, and floral bouquet. The storyteller alphas are from beautiful. The brackets are from the Wonderfall diecut sticker sheet.
