Forever Love!

Good morning! Are you up for a new challenge?! Well, it is Friday and we all know what that means... a new challenge at Frosted Designs! This week we are asking you to get a little messy and use paint!!

Are you asking... where then is the paint on your layout?! Well that is easy! It is on the cardstock behind the main photo! How about a close up....
You see... I painted my embossing folder before placing the cardstock in it and running it through the Cuttlebug! I love the way it turned out! I will definitely be doing more of this in the future!

And I can't go without saying... How cute are my parent's on their wedding day?! I think they are just adorable! I wanted a romantic looking LO for these sweet pictures and the papers from my Lucky Girl January kit were just perfect! Most of the embellishments were from my stash except for the gorgeous white flower ribbon that came in the kit. I misted it with some glimmer mist that I made on my own!
I used the sketch from over at Sketchy Thursdays for this LO... loved it as soon as I saw it!

Be sure to stop by the Frosted Designs blog to see all the creative ways our team used paint this week! And... be sure to check out Frosted Designs on Sunday, Joni is going to share a tutorial on how to do that very cool background on her LO!
