Gamer Talk with Emily F. | Nerd Nest Challenge 1

Today Nerd Nest Challenges Creative Team member Emily F. is here to share her take on February’s Nerd Nest Challenge, Document Your Voice. Give a warm welcome to Emily F.!

Hello! Today, I am sharing my take on this month’s challenge: Document Your Voice. I will admit that when I first saw this challenge, I was both excited and slightly worried. At first, I thought about making a layout in Spanish or adding phrases that we say a lot in Spanish. However, my boys were playing Super Mario with my husband and I decided to make a layout about that. They say the cutest things while playing Super Mario and I just had to share with you all what they say.

Speech Bubble #1: I love how Gabriel says “Luigi”. Instead of saying the name with an L, he says it like “ouija”. He pronounces it like “Wee-jee”.

Speech Bubble #2: The boys sometimes call the Mario Bros., “The Plubber Guys”. They actually are trying to say “The Plumber Guys”.

Speech Bubble #3: The boys love Super Mario Bros. Their favorite characters are Mario, Luigi, and the Princess.

For this layout, I used my Freckled Fawn kit, Super Mario confetti, and enamel dot stickers. How cute are those speech bubbles? Those transparency alphas are awesome and really made my layout pop. The speech bubbles and alphas came in the Freckled Fawn kit and to be honest, this kit is just awesome for this challenge. Below are some up close photos of my layouts.

I definitely plan to make some more layouts that depicts how many family speaks. This was an awesome challenge and I can’t wait to see what you all create!
