I Got the Job!!!

Just thought I'd share the layout I made for my job interview last week.  I was given five sheets of patterned paper, (two green, two yellow, and one stripe), some flower die cuts, two lengths of ribbon and some black and white cardstock.  My test was to create a two page layout using at least some of every item in the kit and then to make a card using some or all of the left overs. 
Here's the two pager I made.  I just printed out the photos on regular paper at home and I'm really happy with how the layout turned out.  I'm going to have to recreate this!  :)

 One of the challenges with this was that the first page of the two pager had to stand by itself.  So, here's page one.

 And, this is the companion page I created.
There were no alphabets included so I used my printer and added the kids' initials to two of the die cuts.  Mickey's turned into a little ribbon after I cut out some of the stripes and notched the ends.
I also printed my title on white cardstock and turned it into a banner to mimic Mickey's ribbon.

They prefer typed journaling over handwritten so I turned again to my printer and then notched the ends as well.  I tucked the other end under some of the stripe strips I cut out and I really like that look.  I'll be doing that again!

For the card, I just used the die cuts and some of the patterned paper.  I was really trying to get it done quickly as I think my biggest obstacle towards getting this job is wanting to work partially from home.  So, I wanted to show that I could accomplish a lot in a little time. 

Now that I have a little more time, I'd probably have added some of the along the yellow panel behind the green, layered with some of the two ribbons.
Ah, well.  We'll see how it goes.   I got the job!  I'm so excited and can't wait to get started!
Thanks for stopping by!  :)
