Frosted Designs Challenge

Well... it's Friday and that means that we have a new challenge posted at Frosted Designs!! This is Pat's week to host and she is challenging us to CUT UP A PHOTO!! Can you believe that?!! Actually, I am thrilled she picked this challenge because it pushed me to do a LO that I have been wanting to do for some time now!!


These are pictures I took of my family at Cedar Point Amusement Park a year ago!! I loved the photo of the ferris wheel and I loved that I got a picture of the first roller coaster Lauren ever rode and I wanted to put it all on a LO! But everything I tried seemed to get cluttered and the pictures were getting lost! Until I tried this technique!! I used a square paper punch to cut the squares in the photos and the patterned paper. That way I knew everything would be even!! I lined everything up into straight rows and added a few embellishments! I even added some chipboard squares under some of the photos (which isn't showing up well in this picture) to make some of the photos "pop!" My family loved the way it turned out!!

Now... we would love to see how brave you can be.... can you really cut up those fabulous photos?! Or a picture you worked so hard to color?!! You can do it... we know you can!! Show us what you've got!! And be sure to stop over at the Frosted Designs site to see what the design team did this week!! Their layouts and projects blew me away!! Link up your project for a chance to win some digis from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More!!  Enjoy you weekend!!

What a great way to shake things up a bit! Love what you did on this one ... and such great photos tto! Been missing your sweet comments and drop bys. Glad you are getting settled in and that it's starting to feel like home. Seems to me that having the first holiday really helps to feel grounded in a home. Don't wear yourself out!

Barb,
So sorry I haven't been commenting lately. I have been getting ready for Disney. We leave on the 8th of October. So We will be there the day you leave. Well anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say I really love this layout that you did. I love the challenge and the way you cut those photos. I will have to try that sometime. I am always afraid to cut the photos , I might mess them up. You did a fantastic job on it though. TFS

Hugs
