celebrate life....

Good Morning,
I'm sorry that I didn't get to read any blogs last night. It was first day back for teachers and we had Open House at school from 5-7. I didn't get out until 7:30 and home @ 8. I ate dinner and hit the bed! I'll be visiting tonight....

Well, today is my day to host the Frosted Designs challenge. I chose the theme "Celebrate Life." The reason behind this theme, today is Granny's 84 birthday and I want to celebrate!!!! Happy Birthday, Gran!!!! I love you! I'm using the Friday Sketch at Practical Scrappers by our fabby designer, Pia...isn't this fun?!!!



And here is my take on it....This is Gran with Megan (bottom) and Ashlea while at the beach this spring. She loves birds, flowers, and all things that God gives us in nature. So this layout is all about celebrating her.....

All papers and embellies are Making Memories (Chloe's Closet), the stamps and ink are CTMH. I used some stickles to accentuate the flowers and birds, as well as to add just a hint of shimmer.
I also chose to use a colored pencil border for the photos rather than cut paper mats. I really like the effect of it.
Here is a better look at the stickles and the birds....

Now, head on over to check out my fabby Frosted sister's inspiration for you as well! Leave them some love!!!! I can't wait to see how you Celebrate Life.....

Blessings,
