Oh how I love your smile.... Frosted Designs challenge

I'm one of those people who really love their own handwriting. When our challenge- which is to use our own handwriting on our project - was announced this week at Frosted Designs - I rejoiced!

Here's my layout:

I used Close To My Heart's Perfect Pearls paint to write my title, then outlined it in dark brown pen. I used the same dark brown pen for all of my journaling and to trace around the heart accent, which was done with American Crafts paper, layered on chipboard, then covered in Close To My Heart's liquid glass. I used all American Crafts patterned paper (and the solid peachy color, which was the reverse of the green flourish paper), a sheet of brown Bazzill, as well as some to-die-for American Crafts pearl brads. LOVE THOSE! Now, I just need them in every color and triple the amount in brown pearl brads, and I'd be one happy camper. =) This layout also uses pearl flourishes from Prima and some fancy pants layered flowers I created using my flower stash and several 2" circles of tulle.

You also know how much of a sucker I am for a great sketch, which worked well with this week's Sketch Challenge on the American Crafts blog. We had to use one of their sketches they featured last week and at least two American Crafts products. This layout was my inspiration - I just topsy-turveyed it since I didn't have a horizontal picture.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the amazing work at Frosted Designs this week, too!
