"Thanksgiving Face" (Scrap Friends November Sketch!)

**Two more days! Enter my November giveaway HERE**

Good afternoon! I'm back again today to share with you a layout I completed last night. It's my first non-design team project in a while, and I had a lot of fun with this one! And because I don't get the opportunity much lately to do "personal" scrapping, I had to do a little bit of scouring for a sketch/challenge that inspired me. And that is when I discovered Sketch Challenge #7 from Scrap Friends! I loved it instantly and knew it would perfectly suit some silly pictures of my daughter from this past week's Thanksgiving dinner.

"Thanksgiving Face"

Sketch #7 from Scrap Friends

A closer look...
So some of you might recall my "Dinosaur" layout about my daughter and the ugly faces she can sometimes make. This picture kinda reminds me of that dinosaur face, lol! Not the most attractive, especially with food on her face and drool sliding down her chin...
The chipboard Polaroid frame is from Scrap FX. Don't you just love the sweet little polka dots??
The paper/butterflies/word stickers are from the new KaiserCraft "Pickled Pear" collection. I actually ordered it not fully knowing how much I'd like it...and then I used it and discovered I love it!






Thanks as always for stopping by and for letting me share with you :). 
Have a great day~

Hvor er det både sjovt og flot, og småbørn har da vist altid savl og madrester i ansigtet, det væsentlige er det dejlige store smil, din pynt er som sædvanlig helt overdådig. knus morkaren.
