NSD Challenge #7

Well--I didn't get my last two Frosted Design challenges posted in time. The cut off was midnight on Monday--but I didn't look to find out midnight where? LOL Oh well, that is ok, I'm just having fun getting layouts done in a fast way!

This one was Jennifer's Recipe Challenge. I loved what she wrote for her guidelines:

begin with1 piece of patterned paper as your recipe base
add some texture and character to your recipe with some distressing of any kind
  add in 2 piece's of cardstock for good measure
 everybody loves something sweet, add 1-2 photo's
add a secret ingredient (hidden journaling)
no need to measure just grab a handful of flowers to taste and toss them onto your recipe
spice it up with a little bling 
stir in your choice(s) of lace, ribbon or a doilie or 2
before serving, top it off with a special title to make your creation extra memorable
let it set, and serve on our Frosted Designs blog in the correct challenge link up!!

It's prettier in-real-life (IRL). I had trouble taking a picture that made the paper flowers show better.

 I spent awhile trying to figure out how to make a sliding piece that would stop and not come out all the way, then I remembered that CTMH's 
Magic- Interactive Scrapbook Program had instructions on how to do it.
I just love the little bobble I have for the tab of the hidden journaling, it is from Close To My Heart's Heirloom Assortment. I'll cut a slit in the page protector and have the tab sticking out.

Ok--so not the most exciting hidden journaling, but it was getting late, and I was hoping to get the layout entered for the challenge. I may go back and put something different.
The glittery leaves, hearts and "love" sticker are things I have had in my stash for years! 
Now I hope to complete some of the challenges for Scrapbook and Cards Today, their challenges aren't due until midnight Thursday.
This time I'm going to find out what time zone that midnight is! 
Thank you for surfing through today!
Hope your day is a beautiful one.


  1. FANTASTIC layout, Lisa! Love the texture that the flowers add to that pretty background paper; and the heirloom accent for the hidden journaling is the perfect touch! :)
