Find Joy!

Happy New's Year everyone! I hope this year is filled with many blessings for all of you! I am wrapping up the holidays here in Indiana and will be back home Sunday. So... next week I plan on catching up on all the posts and blogging I have missed!Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and left some blog love! I always love reading your comments!

We have a new Friday challenge for you at Frosted Designs! This week we would like for you to use a Quote on your card, layout or project! Here is the LO I made for this week's challenge....

My quote is... Find Joy in the Little Things! These are pictures of Lauren running through the sprinklers in our front yard when she was two! The cute little frog digi stamp came from this week's sponsor... Lia Stampz! Lia has the most adorable and unique stamps and were so much fun to play with!

I added stickles over the water in the photo so that it showed up better and continued the spray of water on to the umbrella that Froggy was holding!

I did some paper piecing with this digi and was able to make the umbrella look a little more dimensional. I added Clear Accents to the umbrella to give it a clear shiny look!

Supplies used:
Paper: Imaginisce & Bazzill
Flowers: Misc. from my stash
Gems: iRock tool
Colored Pencils: Prisma
Letters: Thickers and Making Memories
Sketch: Liz Qualman
Digi Stamp: Lia Stampz
Punch: Martha Stewart

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you get a chance to check out what our design team did for you on the Frosted Designs blog! We have some great ideas!
