Tweet!

I hope all of you have had a great week!!  I know I have!!  We finished up our Disney Park days with a fabulous day! It started with Lauren going to the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique for her princess makeover and then we were off to Magic Kingdom! There she met some more characters and got more autographs!! After that we had dinner in Cinderella's castle... a major hit with Lauren!! And, as if that wasn't busy enough, we did the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party until midnight!! What a jam packed day! I wanted to share some photos with you but that will have to wait until I get back and on my own computer!!

So.... It's Friday and we all know what that means..... A new challenge at Frosted Designs!! Whoo Hoo!! And I picked this challenge this week so I KNOW you are going to love it!! Are you ready?!! The challenge this week is to USE YOUR OWN HANDWRITING OR DOODLE ON YOUR LAYOUT, CARD OR PROJECT!! Seriously... could I have made it any easier on you?! If you use pen ANYWHERE on your project, you can enter to win some yummy Stampin Up candy that Pat has offered!! Go to FROSTED DESIGNS to check out more about this weeks challenge, check out what our lovely team did to show you just how easy it is, and you can see the prize!!

Here is the LO I did:


I love this picture of my daughter and my nephew! They are only 3 months apart and my sister and I were always doing pictures of them together!! Right now they still think this photo is cute... but something tells me that when it shows up on that graduation slide show they might think differently!! lol!!

So... for this challenge, I did all kinds of doodling! The frame around the photo is outlined in black pen and then I added the XOXOs!! I thought it turned out darling!! And since I am not much of an artist, I really didn't want to freehand my doodles... so I cheated!! hee hee!!! I took a black pen and outlined different parts of the flowers to make them stand out! I think it made it a little more fun! I also pop dotted the centers of the flowers to add a little more dimension to the project!
I also outlined the word "Tweet" because I wanted it to be my title and stand out just a little more!! Finally I added some speech bubbles with what I think these darling kids would be saying to my sister and I if they could!!

I hope you decide to join us for this easy peasy challenge! And be sure to check out Frosted Designs for more infomation about how you can win a prize just for being a follower!! But hurry, you only have until tomorrow!! We are also having a design team call at Frosted Designs... go check it out!! Have a great weekend! I should be back early next week to check in on all of you!! Thanks for stopping by!!
