FWAB/ CSI/ MCSB/ Frosted Design's

Hi everyone, wow it feels like a while since I've posted. I've been really busy with my kiddos and summer activities. So needless to say I haven't had alot of scrapping time. Which is fine, I have lots of new plans and ideas and will have plenty of time to try them out once the kids return to school in the next few weeks.

I was however lucky enough to have some scrappy time last Sunday and was able to create a few things that I wnat to share with you all today!

I created this layout for quite a few things and am pretty proud of how it turned out seems how before I made it my mojo had seemed to take a one way ticket outta my house!
 Like I said I created this page for quite a few different things, 4 to be exact!

I am proud to introduce to you my very first project using Flourish With A Bling's BRAND NEW
For this layout I used 2 different set combined

FWAB Elise Flourish Silver - Dusky Pink & Rose Pink flowers

FWAB Elise Flourish Antique Brown - Mustard & Brown flowers

They are truely incredable! If you have not had a chance to get your hands on some, I highly suggest that you do so! They are simply amazing!

I created this layout for the beautiful sketch challenge going on at My Creative Sketches, I really love their sketches and try to play along whenever I get a chance! Pam and her girls never dissapoint with their challenges and beautiful DT samples!

CSI, always have fun little challenges each week and I NEVER have had a chance to play along although I always try to check things out whenever possible! I was fortunate enough to play this week, and was super excited about the color palette. However after I was done creating I realized I had forgotten to follow the directions completely and left out a few items.....oh well I still love the layout and will try again next time!

This weeks challenge over at Frosted Designs is to create a project using "FABRIC'
Check it out and play along for your chance to win a RAK from our sponsor

WOW LOL, that seemed like a whole blog post in and of itself and I haven't even gotten to the actual project yet, lol!!! Sorry for the long winded post, but I didn't want to leave anything or anyone out!
So if you like what you've seen above above keep reading, for the final results!!

Without Further Ado

Hello Sunshine
Before I continue I have to take a moment to blab just a wee bit more......this layout is of my oldest daughter when she was one years old.....I can hardly believe she is now 13 and off to eighth grade. My where has the time gone? Just 5 minutes ago I was putting barettes in those soft brown curls of hers and now I am helping her pick out high heels for school dances and make up that doesn't appear to dark or shocking. Five minutes ago, her tiny little fingers were entwined with mine while sitting on my lap listening to me read her a story or sing her a song, what happened to those days I long for so deeply. My heart aches when I think back to those days when she was my precious little baby, but it always helps to remind myself that no matter how much time passes she will always be my precious daughter! And that will never change!

Whew, lol sorry for the sappy moment, I just get so teary eyed and nostalgic when I look at my older photos, It makes me realize how precious and short life really is.  AND how old I'm getting lol!

I used My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Collection paired with some older Prima papers. As you can see I distressed the edges using my Ingvild Bolme Distress Tool!!

I think since this post is so long winded I will skip the details and just share all my close up's with you!

I hope you enjoyed! Please stop by again!
