Sketch N Scrap November Pop-up Challenge #1

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you! I hope that your weekend is off to a good start!

Today I am hosting a Pop-up Challenge over in the Sketch N Scrap Monthly Challenges Facebook group and I would love it if you played along! All you have to do is use the sketch that I have chosen and create a layout based on it. Here is the sketch from Sketch N Scrap from November 15, 2017 :

And this is what I came up with:

I had two smaller photos that I wanted to use so I printed them at 2x2 and added them in place of the one smaller photo that is shown on the sketch. I added a cluster on the other side of the large photo. I kinda feel like this is a little left-side heavy...I may see if I can move the cluster and the photos to the right just a bit. 

This layout is of my daughter and son-in-law's birthday party from this year. Their birthdays are only 11 days apart and we tend to celebrate them at the same time. This year we ordered their favorite pizzas from Mazzio's, had their favorite chocolate mayonnaise cake, and then after that, we went out and everyone tried their hand at hitting golf balls down in the field.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I die-cut the numbers 3 and 1 from one of the patterned papers and then again from white cardstock three times to make them have a faux chipboard look. I added a few a few puffy dots around the layout to finish it off.

I made a cluster using the die-cuts from the Happy Cake Day collection and cutting the 'make a wish' embellishment from the 2x2 squares from one of the papers. The die-cuts had a thick white border around them so I trimmed them down so there was not so much showing. I stamped a label in green to pull that color down to the bottom of the layout. This is a mega cluster but I kinda like it!

For this layout, I used this page kit that I put together for my Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash Kit for November:

I am offering up a prize over in the Sketch N Scrap Monthly Challenges Facebook group - PinkFresh Studio's - The Best Day - paper pack, stickers, and enamel dots:

I hope you get a chance to play along with my challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a fantastic day!
