Hi there ladies, it is my turn to host the blog at Frosted Designs today on this lovely Monday morning!!!!!

When I first looked at the Vintage Bliss Collection from Simple Stories, I thought to use a picture of myself, and make it a nice girly page.  But I just could not find one that I liked........  So in the end I opt for a picture we took recently of myself and our little one.  This is one of my all time favourite photos, and I just LOVE it!!!!!  

All the papers are from the Vintage Bliss collection, as well as the title and embellishments.  One thing I love about Simple Stories is the fact that you can get all your embellishments and title work from the collection.  I did some cutting up of papers that I used as embellishments, as well as the title.  Here are some close-ups!!!!

The background paper that I used had stitched butterflies on, so I decided to handstitch over them, boy, what a job, but in the end, it really turned out awesome and so worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The title I also got from one of the papers, but it was too long for the space I wanted to place the title in, so I cut it up and rearranged it, to fit into the space.  


If you head on over to the Frosted Designs Store, you will be able to pre-order this range!!!!!!!!

It is time for a new colour challenge over at Black with Two, for the month of October!!!!!!!

With October being breast cancer awareness month, it was decided to use pink in our colour board in hopes to inspire you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All of the challenges are to be created using a DOMINANT BLACK cardstock background and the 2 colours.  October is DOMINANT BLACK WITH CANDY PINKS AND GOLD PLUS 5% ALLOWANED WHITE :-)

Here is the colour board, along with my take on the challenge.

For this layout I used the following sketch from Pagemaps

Here are some close-up pictures of the detail :-)




So head on over to Black with Two and join in the fun!
