First Place

Hello! :) Today brings a new challenge from Frosted Designs- "Drip, Drip, Drip, Little April Showers". I opted for the drip element and I achieved this by coloring some circles with gelatos and then adding water to make them a bit drippy.

seaweed queen

Ashlyn found some seaweed when we went down to the ocean last summer and had a great time posing for photos with it. I used the awesome Make it Monday No. 35 sketch from The Memory Nest as my inspiration for this layout. 

pp and sheer elements: Pink Paislee
sequins: Crate Paper
enamel dots: MME

One more thing- we got the best possible news recently! Ashlyn had full scopes with biopies a few weeks ago to check to see how her Crohn's was faring. The results were more than I ever could have expected- her Crohn's is in COMPLETE REMISSION at this time!!! It took over four years to achieve this and we couldn't be happier! I just pray that her great health and remission continues for many years to come. We are still going to continue with the EEN (Exclusive Enteral Nutrition) as well as the Remicade (mostly for her arthritis), but it sure is nice to receive some good news. Our move to Texas eight months ago was well worth it!!!

A {Aubree Nicole}

Pink! is the newest challenge up on the Frosted Designs blog today. I love pink and had so much fun creating this "A" for my granddaughter, Aubree. 

This A was originally gold so I painted it a medium pink. I then added some light pink paint to some texture paste and applied that over a stencil. 

I added some pink sequins and rhinestones to bling it up. 

A- Michael's
paint: Martha Stewart
texture paste
sequins: Teresa Collins and whimsical twist
chalkboard heart: Michael's
flowers: Michael's
crinkle ribbon
custom cut Aubree Nicole: Jitto Bear Co. 

Hurry over to the Frosted Designs blog to check out the details of the challenge and see all the beautiful Pink projects from the team!

Oh the places you'll go!

Today I am up on the Jitto Bear Co. blog sharing my very first design team project for them. In the spirit of Dr. Seuss' birthday, I decided to use the "Oh the places you'll go!" chipboard piece. 

I thought this appropriate as Skylar has recently graduated from boot camp and is just beginning her adventures. Once she completes her training, she will be heading off to Bahrain where she will be stationed for a few years. 

here is a detailed image of the chipboard: 

chipboard: Jitto Bear Co. 
cs: Hobby Lobby
pp and stickers: Simple Stories
twine: Prima
sequins: Hazel & Ruby

The Jitto Bear Co. chipboard is amazing! I am most impressed with all the detail work that it has. Take a look in the Jitto Bear Co. store to see all the fantastic pieces available- there is something for everyone. Seriously. You can even place a custom order, how cool is that?
