I am SO EXCITED to be sharing my first layout with you, as one of the new DT members for Frosted Designs! I have been playing along with the challenges at FD for over the past 6 months since I found their blog and it has been so much fun! Now, I am a part of their Team and I get to spend the next 6 months working along-side some very talented ladies!
The challenge for this week's Fabulous Friday (Sept. 2) is to use Flourishes on your layout or project. As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to use it for a layout that had something to do with water, because flourishes make a great splash embellishment. I had some fun pictures of our oldest daughter, playing on the water slide at her cousin's birthday party, so I took my inspiration from there. I've had some acrylic flourish stamps in my stash forever, so I used those along with the "Twilight" Close to My Heart ink pad, to stamp my images. I also added a little bit of "Sparkles" from Close to My Heart for that extra little touch of bling!
