Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

Well it's Friday and that means a new challenge over at Frosted Designs! This week we had to use something from around the house as an embellishment on our project.  This one was a challenge for me.  I just could not for the life of me find anything!  As I was sitting and drinking my cup of coffee from 7-11, I looked at the corrugated holder on the cup and it hit me!  I cut apart the holder and colored it with pens and used it as part of my title.
I thought the title I chose was perfect for this picture of my son and our dog.  You can always find them lounging on the couch.  All of the paper I used is from Fancy Pants, My Family.  I even got a little adventurous with my sewing machine and did some zig zag stitching on the layout. The clouds and tree are wooden cut outs I found at Michaels.  


Please stop by Frosted Designs and take a look at what our fabulous DT has come up with this week! Don't forget our fantastic drawing which will take place at the end of the month.  One lucky person will win this fabulous prize:
All you need to do is enter a project.  Enter as many times was you want!
