So much work so little time

Once again things here have been pretty crazy.  I haven't had much time to update my blog.  Heck I have barely had enough time to even get any crafting done in the first place.  So that means that I have quite a few projects that I need to post.  We'll start with the most recent and work our way backwards.  That is because this most recent one is a challenge that is still going on over at Frosted Designs.  This week you are challenged to make a back to school project.  For my project I created an altered lunch box for my niece.  Her birthday is right around the beginning of the school year so I thought it would make a great birthday present.

The next project was for our celebrate life challenge at Frosted Designs a few weeks ago.  You were basically supposed to somehow celebrate life in your project.  I interpreted this challenge by scrapping a layout about one of my passions in life.  I LOVE to food.  I love to cook, eat and learn about food.  It is something that I spend a lot of time reading about, thinking about and dreaming about.

And Finally This layout isn't for a challenge at Frosted Designs.  It is just something that I thought was WAY too cute to not share.  This is a layout about my sister's dog (the big one) and my dog (the little one).  They are different in almost every way.  Mine is old, hers is young.  Mine is high strung, hers is mellow.  Besides all their differences they have the best time playing together.  My sister took this photo of the two of them after a long day of playing together.  We like to call them the "twins"

This Way!

This week at Frosted Designs the challenge is to use and arrow somewhere on your layout.  Head over and check out all the great work by the design team.  I didn't get mine done this week in time to have it up on Frosted Designs, but I did make sure to get it done so I can still participate in the fun challenge.  Arrows are a great way to give direction to a project or highlight a certain aspect of the page or a photo.  For my I used a photo of my nephew leading us down a path at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.  He was our guide when we went off on a wooded path and it was just too cute.  I thought the arrows would be a great addition to this page because he was pointing the way for us.
