Seeing Spots

Frosted Designs is seeing spots!  Polka dots to be exact.  The challenge this time around is to use polka dots on your project.  Any way, any how.  I have used my dots in patterned paper and washi tape.  I have also used circle letters within my title reminiscent of polka dots.

April 28, 2013 will forever be a special day in our lives.  Our oldest son Aron was baptized by my husband that day.  His grandma gave him this cross necklace to commemorate the occasion.  I love this photo of Aron holding it so I can see.  I thought it was the perfect focal photo to go along with the ones of him being baptized.  I am so very proud of Aron for making this life changing decision.  

I hope you will join us for the polka dot challenge over at Frosted Designs.  There is so much talent on the team that I know you will be inspired.  Make sure you link up your project for the chance to win a prize and so I can check them out.  Thanks for stopping by!

Going in Circles...

Can you believe we are already to the middle of June???  Time sure is flying by but it means a new challenge over at About A Boy.  For this mid month challenge the Girls are going round in circles.  The only requirements for this challenge are Circles and your Boy!

Aden has a large collection of the "Big Eye" pets.  On this particular day he was home sick from school and I thought a new big eye pet would help cheer him up.  Not even a new pet put a smile on his face.

For this challenge, I used a circle stencil from Studio Calico and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.  More circles were added with doilies, circle washi tape, and circle embellishments.

Make sure you link them up at the About A Boy blog so I can check them out!  While you're there make sure you see what the other designers have made.  There is lots of inspiration there!

About A Boy....

Excited to bring you my first post for the About A Boy design team!  There will be two challenges each month.  One on the 1st and the second on the 15th.  Your projects need to be new for the challenge and about your "boy".....son(s), husband, uncle, dad, nephew....you get the picture.  :)

The first challenge this month is "Favorite Summer/holiday Activity".   

My boys love nothing more than a good hot day and a good play on the slip n slide.  They love to see how far they can go and how big of a splash they can make.

I used Basic Grey's "Hey Boy" and "Hello" for this layout.  I added the Studio Calico boy and made a wee crown for my "king".  A few dew drops finished the page.  I love how they look like drops from Aden's splash.  

Hope you will join us over at About A Boy for this challenge.  Make sure you link up your projects.  I'd love to check them out.
