Sketch-N-Scrap Birthday Bash Challenge

Happy Birthday Sketch-N-Scrap!   It’s time to PARTY!!  This month we have been celebrating with loads of challenges and prizes over at the Sketch-N-Scrap Challenge Blog and at all the Design Team member’s blogs.  There is still plenty of time to get in on all the action and fun, because now it is my turn to host a challenge.

birthday bash

My challenge is a Word Challenge, where you use things on your project that begin with the letters of the word.  So, like I said “Let’s Party”, cuz the challenge word is P-A-R-T-Y.

Here is my layout:


P = photo corners; A = alphabet stickers; R = ribbon; T = tissue paper; Y = yellow elements

You don’t have to use the same items as me, just as long as the items you choose start with the letter.

Now, how about some details:


The imperfectly-perfect title, written by my son, on the MME sticky note.


Lyrics from the 1980’s song Electric Avenue, by Eddy Grant.  So fitting for this wild rockin’ t-shirt.


I wanted this background paper by Scenic Route to look like the notebook papers my son pulls out of his backpack, so I first applied a Jenni Bowlin Studio ink pad in Weather Vane in certain areas and then sanded.

DSCN3493All the supplies I used to created this layout were from the JBS Mercantile March 2014 Kits with the addition of tissue paper, ribbon, and photo corners.  This fair ribbon I created includes a vintage milk cap as a base and a JBS Chalkboard Flatback as the center piece.  If you would like a few instructions on how to make a fair ribbon click here.

And speaking of Jenni Bowlin Studio, this challenge is sponsored by JBS Mercantile!!  One random winner, chosen by, will win a $20 gift certificate to spend at  JBS Mercantile.  Thank you JBS!!!

To enter:

  1. Create a new project (layout, card, altered art) for this Word Challenge.
  2. List the items used for the word PARTY.
  3. Link up directly to your blog post in the comments of this post.
  4. Create a link to this blog post.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!  The deadline for this challenge is June 20th.  I will announce the winner on my blog shortly after that.

Good luck!!!  🙂
