Getting Fancy @ Frosted Designs!

Welcome to Fabulous Friday this week at Frosted Designs!  Before I begin, let me just say how much I am enjoying being a part of the DT at Frosted Designs!!  These ladies are awesome to work with and they are all SO talented!  I love seeing what each and everyone of them comes up with for all of our different challenges!

So, back to why we are here...for this week's challenge, which is to use FANCY TRIM (pom pom, flowers, ribbon, lace, etc.) on your layout or project!  How fun is that??!!  We all love adding texture to our pages and this is a great way to do that without adding a lot of bulk!  I would like to share my layout with you and I also have another sketch that I created for this page, to show you today.

 






Please feel free to save and use the sketch...just please mention my name as the sketch designer and add a link back to my Blog.  

As you can see, I had some awesome Fancy Trim to use on this page!  I received some Pink Paislee pleated trim in a prize package I won a couple of weeks ago.  I knew it was perfect for this week's challenge and I loved the look of it along with the theme of my layout.  I also added some MME burlap to go along with the rustic kind of look on this page.  And, of course, the whip-stitching around my circle was totally fun!  I just used my paper piercer to make the holes and then I added some tape around the end of the twine to get it through the holes a little easier.

So get your creative juices flowing and put on your thinking cap and come join us for a really fun challenge this week!  I can't wait to see what all of you come up with!  :)

Ooooooh!! I love this!! Your sketches are just so cool...I just finished a layout today based on one of your sketches!! I can't wait to show you :) I love the navy blue in this. It matches her dress perfectly! The stitching around the circle reminds me of rope, and the pleated brown ribbon is awesome! Another rockin' layout from Ashley!!
