Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a layout I created using
Frosted Designs March kit, "A Moment In Time." I love the papers in this month's kit with the rich colors of turquoise, black and pink. I did a lot of fussy cutting, distressing, masking, misting and stamping.

I worked with a picture of my Mom when she was a little girl.  Love the innocence in the picture. I did a lot of fussy cutting and tearing and distressing!  I took some of the Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry paint from the kit and added it to a mister along with some water to do some subtle misting on my background.  I also used the paint to color some of the lace from the kit.  I also used the paint on the butterfly along with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals, Bachelor Button Blue from the Prairie Wildflower Magical set which you can find in the Frosted Designs store here.

Here I've added a cluster of flowers which include the pink Prima Soporano flowers from the kit along with a blue Kaisercraft flower from the store which I dabbed with some of the African Jade Silks Acrylic glaze from the kit.

We still have a few kits left in the store.  
A Moment in Time
You can check out all of the contents here as well as placing an order.

I hope I have inspired you to create.

Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect Moment

So loving that it is the weekend and a beautiful one weather wise!  After a long and bitterly cold winter it would seem as though Spring is making it's way here!  Temps near 60 degrees today and sunshine!  It's amazing how a warm day filled with sunshine can lift your spirits!  And speaking of lifting your spirits, a couple of March challenges, Scrap Around The World and Inkido have inspired me to create this layout:

I love the pink mood board at Scrap Around The World  for their March challenge, created by DT member Alexandra:
I was inspired by the layering on the dress, the flowers and touches of green.  

Inkido also has a great mood board and March challenge hosted by Bellaidea:
I was instantly drawn to the pink and green gems and incorporated the colors and some small pink rhinestones into my layout.

I really got into an artsy mood with my layout and did some painting, masking, embossing, misting and stamping along with some watercolors, pens and gelatos on my background. I used a piece Bazzill Vintage Market paper on my background that started on like this:

Here are a few closeups:

I definitely think my mojo has made a return.  I've got lots of ideas spinning around in my head and can't wait to create.

Thanks for stopping by!
