Frosted Design Challenge

Here is yet another layout made with my Fab new G-45 paper - an ABC Primer Collection. I am getting so much mileage out of that little 8x8 paper pad! I only bought 3 12x12 sheets and the 8x8 pad. I still have a ton of paper left. The sheets are two sided and on every sheet one of the sides is a generic enough pattern that you could use it any time of year. I am totally loving it.

I'm not as thrilled with this layout though. Yesterday when I finished it I said, "oh, I hate this". This morning I said, "it's okay". Soooooo I'm showing it to you and you can let me know what you think. Be brutal. I used a lovely sketch from Frosted Design.

Don't forget that the Sketch-a-thon is still going on at Sketches4all. It has really been fun so far. I have done all of the challenges except for one and I plan to do it this morning. I love doing things like a sketch-a-thon. I work better under pressure.

Also, I would LOVE IT if you would go join in the challenge at Crafter's Companion Challenge blog. The challenge is FALL which is easy since that is the challenge going on everywhere right now. And there is an awesome prize for the winner. I would love to maybe feature you as a Friday Favorite. Get busy and make me something!! ha

I'm in a mood to scrap but since I don't feel well I'm not sure how things are turning out. I think that is why I am only using this paper pad - it is one less thing to have to figure out! lol (and I just love it so it makes it easy to keep working with it)

So yes, I still don't feel that good but I'm sure it is only a cold so I will survive. ha I got the kids off to school. It is actually a nice cool morning and I think it is only going to be in the upper 80s or 90s (probably 90s). Fall is upon us... lol (at least Fall "Vegas style"!) ha

How's the weather where you are??
