It's Friday and we have a new challenge for you!!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I am in a really good mood because this is the start of my 2 week vacation!! Yay!! I am so excited to have some down time... and I am going to put up the computer!! Yep, I said it!! I promised my husband I would behave and actually focus on the family on this family vacation!! I do have several posts ready for DT assignments that will be popping up for you while I am gone!!

Now.. on to the important stuff!! My challenge is for Frosted Designs! Our fabulous Erika is our host and her challenge for us this week is to use border punches!! Easy, easy, easy!! Now we want you all to play along!! Here is the LO I did!!
This is another one I had completed for Myra's party last weekend. I love this picture of her and her husband Scott. I kept it pretty simple so that the focus was on them... and she really liked the simplicity of this one!! I did make that fabulous satin flower though!! Isn't it pretty?!! The papers are K & Company and the border punch was Martha Stewart! Now, be sure to visit the Frosted Designs blog to see what all the other amazing, talented women created for you this week and then be sure to link up your own project!! Don't forget that the very generous Debbie is offering up some very yummy candy for the month of July!! You can't win if you don't play!!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting!! I really do appreciate all the kind people who take the time to comment!!

Oh, Barb! This lo is stunning! The simplicity gives such an elegence!
You did a wonderful job with the punch border, so the frame to the photo gives such a beautiful matting to it.
I love K & Co.! And the satin flower is so so beautiful, and so is the button you used to top the flower.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment about my "The Kiss" lo over my blog! You're such a sweetie!

Have a super duper family vacation! Enjoy your family and the time off.
XOXO
