Hello everyone out in blogland! I hope you’re having a good night (and not staying up as late as I am!) I just wanted to get in a quick post to show you a couple cute little kids playing around in the water :)
This last weekend Frosted Designs hosted their first annual online crop to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. I couldn’t participate because I was at our LSS’s NSC crop all weekend, but I did want to get in on the challenges they had going on over at Frosted Designs. To be gracious to all of us who were too busy to get in on the fun, they gave us until this Wednesday to get our layouts in. Now they had a ton of challenges this weekend, and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to do this or not, but I managed to get in quite a few in just this layout. The first one was to use birds and/or butterflies, another one was to use a border punch, another was to use 3 basic shapes, another was to use circles so I kinda combined those two...another one was to use ribbon…and they wanted you to use stitching on your layout. So I somehow managed to do all that and not have it look like I was trying to cram challenges together (even though i kinda was! lol) It was kind of fun though, because I just made a list of all the things they wanted for these different challenges and used it as inspiration! That can be a great way to challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and do something different! Anyway, here’s what I came up with! I used this sketch from the scrappiest for this layout as well :)
Here’s some close ups:
This last pic is a picture of Caleb’s footprint that I cut out and glued to a facet (Tim Holtz) using glossy accents. How cute is that?! I just love it!
Products Used: PP: CTMH, Fancy Pants, Jillybean Soup. Cardstock: CTMH + Distress Coredinations, Quickutz: Handmade font (love this!), Tim Holtz: Distress Ink, and Facet, Making Memories Paint, Unknown ribbon, and thread.
