House Divided!

Happy Friday!  I am sharing my newest layout combining two challenges.  The first challenge is a sketch from Creative Scrappers Birthday Blog Hop.  The second challenge is from Child's Play Challenge to use Scooby Doo as inspiration for a layout.  
Sketch #4
My husband and son-in-law have an ongoing rivalry over which Kansas university is the best, the Kansas State Wildcats, or the Kansas Jayhawks.  I took the photos for this layout while we were visiting over the long Thanksgiving weekend in 2011, seems like a long time ago.  It is a fun rivalry and gives the guys something to tease each other about.....but, we all know Kansas State has the better football team and Kansas has the better basketball.  
Child's Play Challenge
The colors in the Scooby Doo photo, the red & purple, and Ava's Halloween costume were my inspiration.
Supplies-Kansas & Kansas State pp, Misc pp, BG Photo Frame, BG Chipboard, BG Flags, Jillibean Corrugated House,  Tim Holtz Chitchat, Misc Twine, Fancy Pants Chipboard, Studio Calico Wood Veneer, and Misc Buttons & Brads.

The fun thing about a college team rivalry, is the kidding & teasing that goes with it.   The day Ava was born, which happened to be in Lawrence, Kansas, the home of the Kansas Jayhawks, her daddy was wearing his Jayhawk sweatshirt and Grandpa wore his favorite Wildcat sweatshirt.  When picking out a gift in the hospital gift shop, Grandpa bought Ava her first K State fitted cap and KU shoes & socks.  I am sure the only time she wore the two gifts at the same time was for the photo.  I had thoughts of adding it to this layout, it just didn't seem to fit.  No doubt, the rivalry will continue in the future.

Wishing all a good day.  God Bless.
