Frosted Designs has a New Look!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I am a little more excited than usual this Friday!! Maybe it's because I only have to work one more day before my summer vacation begins..... or maybe it is because of the exciting changes taking place over at Frosted Designs!! Recently Meg and Jamie who started the blog, decided to step down to move on to other projects. Sooooo..... Diana and I decided we didn't want to see this challenge blog come to an end, we love the team of designers and we already have so much talent there!! With that being said, we are now the co-leaders!! After a few brainstorming sessions we have decided to make a few changes to the blog!!! The first thing you will probably notice is our bright new look!! AND we are now going to start offering monthly prizes!! Do you like the look of this:

All you have to do to have a chance to win is participate!! It's that simple!!! Each time you submit a project at Frosted Designs you get one entry. The more projects you submit, the more chances you have to win!! At the end of the month we will draw one person from all the entries!!! Did you see the Cricut cartridge Freshly Picked?! Isn't that worth playing for?! And we have some papers, flowers, bling, Stickles, ribbon, buttons, stamps and more!!! So.... come play along!! We would love to see what you create with our challenges!!

This week's challenge is being presented by me!! The challenge is to use buttons in your cards, layouts or projects!! Seriously... could we make this any easier for you to enter?!! We all have them... and we all use them... so show us what you've got!!!

This LO is of my baby girl who just turned 8!! (Sorry about the crooked "8"... I didn't notice it until I posted the picture!!) We were on the cruise and after dinner, I snapped a few pictures of Lauren. I included the pros and cons to her turning 8 on this page. I would so love to freeze her right at this stage... she is so much fun and my little buddy!! I used buttons for the centers of all the flowers and I also used 3 red buttons of different sizes and shapes to add a little interest to the bottom corner.

Supplies used:
Papers - My Mind's Eye Out & About
Flowers - Prima
Letters - Thickers
Misc. - ribbon, "8", metal clip

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.... please head on over to Frosted Designs and check out all the new changes!!!! Be sure to link your button project for a chance to win the monthly prize!!!
Barb :)
