Ahhh, it's so nice to have a few minutes to update my blog. I've been so busy this Fall with work, home and church responsibilities that it seems my scrapbooking time is limited to just getting my projects done! So I was glad to see I could incorporate the CK issue challenge over at Club CK with the Friday challenge for Frosted Designs. And what inspiration! I love challenges to keep me scrapping! The issue challenge was to use a doily on your layout and the Frosted Designs challenge was to use embossing. So since I didn't have any store-bought doilies, I decided to try out the Cricut Craft Room (that rolled out this week) to create a doily and then run it through my cuttlebug and emboss it. It was definitely a fun, learning experience!. I added the two embossed scalloped circles and was so amazed how well they coordinated with my created doily. My fellow CK Peep Ashley Horton created the sketch I used for this layout. The patterned paper is some really old paper I found in my stash and I loved how the purple and blue paper went so well with these pictures. I also was pleased to put my MS punch around the page punch to good use. This is one page that turned out beautifully and it makes me want to get back in my room and keep scrapping away!
