Frosted Designs...

Hello Everyone!  Some how the numbers on the calendar have ticked away and its now March.  With the year almost a 1/4th gone it seemed fitting that the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge this week is "numbers".  You can interpret this challenge any way you would like. I decided to use my favourite number 3 and one of my favourite photos of my boys.  I have always loved the number 3.  Don't ask me why but I have.  :)  I think its pretty ironic that I have 3 boys that I love to pieces.

I used three different fonts of stickers on my cardstock base and misted over top of them.  I love the shadow effect that it made.

I wanted to incorporate elements of "three" into my page so I included three flowers, doilies, hearts, and the number 3.  I also wanted to sew on this layout so thanks to my best friend Lynne for the use of her sewing machine.  I had gone around my page once and it looked nice all but one corner.  And that corner was going to bother me so I had to go around it again.  And then it struck me....I need to go around my page THREE times!  :) a not so straight sewing turned into another element of 3 on my page.  :)

I really hope you'll play along with this challenge.  It was a fun one for me.  Make sure you link up your project to the Frosted Designs blog for the chance to win a prize and so I can check it out.

Happy Crafting!!  :)


  1. Lydia... this may possibly be one of my all time favorite layouts! I LOVE all the ways you included the number 3 in it, especially the masking of the words! And I completely adore the way you stitched around the edges!! Who would have thought that you were correcting something you didn't like to end up with the final product?! Gorgeous!
