A little something different and some news!

Hello friends!
 
Today I have some wonderful news to share. I'm now a Design Team Member at Frosted Designs. I'm so excited they have such amazing kits. I think this will give me a creative outlet to expand my creativity. My life has become so repetitive from work to my classes and I think right now I NEED different. So I'm very excited about this!
 
Here's some products I used from Frosted Designs.
Studio Calico Wood Hearts

This week over at Frosted Designs Blog we have a Sketch challenge.
Here's my take on the sketch.

 

I used a 12x12 piece of cardstock and painted the center in white paint, very streaky. Then I placed my layout together and added some more paint on the wood pieces. Then I took my white chalk distresser and dabbed on the chalk tape and around the edges of my papers.  I used my Lili of the Valley Stamps, yes Lili of the Valley. They have a wonderful assortment of collage type stamps and beautiful scriptures.
 

 
This gorgeous paper is by Marion Smith Designs it's called Mad Hatter.
The Flowers are from Wild Orchid and Live Love Crafts.
 

 
 I Love that Little 'Drink Me' I had to make sure that was in there!
After I had everything glued down I decided to add some distressing with my Distress inks!
 

 
 
 
 
 I love, Love, LOVE this and I will be getting a shadowbox and it's going up in my house! :)

Some Challenges I'd also like to enter in are:

Scrap Around the World - Mood board (bottles, using a quote, hot air balloon)
