How we met

In keeping with my Book of Me album I decided to do a layout about how I met my husband.  I got the idea from a challenge at  It was a fun layout to do as we have a fun story.  Also it was a great excuse to scrap a few random photos of the two of us.

This week at Frosted Designs our very fun challenge is to use stars.  I LOVE the star shape and this was a great excuse for me to use them as I seem to have been neglecting them lately.  What resulted was (in my opinion) a great final layout for my wedding album.  Yup, that's right...I am finally DONE.  I have even already gone back through and re-done quite a few pages.  This time I think I am for real done.  Here it is.

I used Basic Grey Black Tie and Crate Paper papers on this LO.  As you have probably noticed Blue is a theme for my wedding album.  I decided that I didn't want to create an album with a wholly unified look.  I am far too random for that, but I did want to create an album that had something tying it all together so blue was the thing I chose.  Blue is my favorite color, it was one of our wedding colors (along with brown and orange). and I tend to use it on almost all of my layouts anyway.

Pet Peeves

Recently I decided I wanted to do a Book of Me album.  I thought it would be fun to tell the story of me.  For various reasons I decided a list of my pet peeves would be fun to scrap. 
I used Crate Paper Die Cut paper, Scenic Route Patterned paper, Thickers, Tim Holtz masks, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Fired Brick Distress Ink, Vintage Photo Distress Stickles, Broken China Distress Stickles, and Rock Candy Distress Stickles for this layout.

Valentine's Day

This week at Frosted Designs we are making V-day projects with a twist.  You can't use pink or red in your project.  I decided to go with turquoise, black, purple, and blue on my project. 

I sprayed a gray back ground with Chocolate Covered Cherry and Turquoise Glimmer Mist.  I used my Signo pen to do all the doodling in white.  The heart is Tim Holtz Grungeboard sprayed with Turquoise glimmer mist and then covered in Rock Candy Distress Stickles.  The Wings are a Tim Holtz stamp with Zing Pewter embossing powder.  The rubons are Glitz Designs.  And Finally I added some detail work with Black Diamond and Turquoise Stickles.
