Hello everyone! I hope all of you have had a great week! I have been busy doing some projects on our home so this week just flew by!  Well, since it is Friday, you know what that means.... a new challenge at Frosted Designs! This week we want to you get messy and get out that paint! Here is my layout....

As you can tell from my post on Wednesday, it is nearly impossible to get a serious photo of Lauren right now! Back in December we were in California and spent the day at Universal Studios. We had a great day and snapped plenty of fun photos! I guess Lauren was getting hungry!

So, since the challenge was paint, I wanted to do something other than the obvious splatters or putting paint on my background. Instead, I stamped these cute little banners on paper bags. To make the stamp, I used a foam, rectangular make up applicator that I cut  a little triangle out of. I liked using the paper bags because they are lightweight and don't look as stiff as cardstock. I added a few eyelets and twine and had this cute banner! I also used some of the leftover painted bag to wrap around the tag.

I had a lot of fun getting messy with this project! Now we would love to see what you can create with paint! Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win a prize from Vintage Street Market! You can get to Frosted Designs by clicking HERE!  

Have a great weekend!

Hiya my beautiful friend!
So seriously, no kidding, I've been thinking about you a lot lately so when I read my comments and saw you, I just HAD to smile!
I'm glad to hear you are well, we are too! A little crazy as you know with 3 little ones and had lots of fun during the holidays and great memories like lice, almost needing stitches, antibiotics, etc...but hey, all in day for a Mom! LOL!

Hopefully we'll both do better with keeping up w/ each other (but I know how much time all the DT required commenting takes ya)

Big hugs..miss you! ~Leah
