Another Fabulous Friday!

Boy do we have the challenge for you this week at Frosted Designs!! We are challenging you to get out all of those oversized photos... you know the ones... 5 x 7, 8 x 10,... and use them on a layout! You don't want to do a layout?! That's fine with us... make a card or some other altered project!! I did!! Here is the acrylic mini album I am working on from Lauren's birthday party!
I had never realized how difficult it was to photograph acrylic albums until I tried to do this one!! In the photo it all looks like a jumbled mess!! But irl... it is actually pretty cool! The top layer only has a few things on it.... some rhinestones, a heart with wings and part of the title. The second page has the group photo from the party (Aren't they cute playing their guitars they made at the party!!) I added some stickles to the flourishes and the flower paper clip, added the cute little butterfly charm and the rest of the title!! Behind that, I have other papers that back other photos!! The tabs on the right side highlight the things Lauren loved best about her party! One is "hugs" since every single girl hugged her about 80 times each!! (this was right before we moved so everyone was a little more clingy than normal!! lol!!) The next tab was "crazy fun!" because I have some of the silliest pictures of Lauren and her friends!! And the last tab says "rockin it!" because they divided themselves up into groups to perform a music act for the rest of the girls!! and of course, trophies were given to the winners!! I would love to show you the inside, but I don't have all the photos printed yet! Oh well... maybe another day!! heehee!!

And this is the part that is the hardest.... Look at how sweet Lauren was just a few years ago.....

Yep... that is really her!! Looking all sweet and innocent!! Gotta love her!! I just couldn't help but do a LO for this weeks challenge too!! I found this quote that I thought was just perfect for this sweet photo! I layered the title over the photo since the picture was so large!! I planted a little garden at the bottom that also overlapped the photo!! Ohhhh.... I really wish she could have stayed this age forever!! I LOVED this age!!
Well, now that you have seen what I have created, be sure to stop by Frosted Designs and check out what our other fabulous ladies did!! You will be seeing some new faces this week and you won't want to miss out on that!!! AND... did I mention that there is a prize to be won?! Would you like to see it?!
Can you say YUMMY?!! I thought you could!! This awesome prize is being donated by Purple Pumpkin!! If you have ever shopped there, you will know how hard it is to get the buttons... they sell out very quickly!! This is your chance to have some of these fabulous buttons without the stress of waiting in line!! Each time you enter a project, you get an entry into the drawing!! what are you waiting for?!!!! Get busy and make something!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a safe and fun weekend!!

Enjoy each time, she will grow really fast now. I feel like I blinked and my youngest is getting married.

Barb,
if you will add this in your title bar your little birdie will show up. I just see the bottom of him...Jamie Layne shared that tip with me.

Now, onto your gorgeous work for this week!!!!! That acrylic album is fantastic. It is hard to photograph though. Love all the funky fresh colors you used and the yummy ribbons.
The layout is heavenly! I adore the garden and the pipe cleaner flower, did you make that one?
Blessings,
Kim xXx
