The first challenge in the Birthday Bash came from Lisa at My Creative Endeavours and she asked us to put together a kit consisting of: 8 patterned papers; 5 pieces of cardstock; 2 alphabets; 4-10 flowers - can be punched, handmade, store bought etc; 2-3 sets of stickers (not letter); bling - pearls, rhinestones, stickles, glitter, sequins etc; 3 misc embellishments - e.g. doilies, journalling cards, chipboard, washi tape etc
Here's what I came up with. My patterned papers are (l-r) My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side, First Edition J'Adore, MME Miss Caroline, Bo Bunny Garden Chic, 2 from K&Co Hannah, Sandylion Green Wilderness, Basic Grey Phoebe. Five of these are single-sided; the second photo shows the three b-sides and my five pieces of cardstock - MME Kraft Funday, DCWV Linen Closet, cream from American Crafts, Whirlpool from Bazzill and kraft from Papermania.
My alphabets are brown American Crafts Thickers and teal & cream Mini Market Stickers from October Afternoon. Flowers from Bo Bunny, label stickers from October Afternoon and border stickers from Crate Paper. My bling is two part packs of gems and pearls from Dovecraft and some gem-topped brads from Papermania. I chose four miscellaneous embellishments: some Lily Bee journalling cards, Prima butterflies, two colours of embroidery thread and some washi tape from Trimcraft.
Now to create something from all of this...
