Frosted Designs Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Frosted Designs Fall Blog Hop!!

This is a Challenge Blog Hop - Now what does that mean??  

We have an overall Theme of "Fall" and the RECIPE can be found along the way.  Each Designer is using one "ingredient" on their project.  There are 12 stops on the hop, which makes 12 Ingredients.  You choose 6 of the 12 ingredients to create your "Fall" project and link it up to the Frosted Designs BLOG.

Easy peasy!!
We have some awesome sponsors for our hop:

               
Here is a look at my project,,
 Yes,, I finally decided I could use the Graphic 45 Once Upon A Spring paper I have been hoarding. Everyone please wish it a fond farewell,,, I have also used some Prima, Maya Road, Tsukineko inks, MME, Basic Grey, Fiskars, Punch, WOW embossing powder, some lace, and my sewing machine. 



 The only photo I managed to get, and it is blurry and dark :o(  - such is life. I scrapped it anyway. I used Jenni Bowlin dabbers to paint my MR chipboard, and the letters are from Lily Bee. 


To get this embossed effect, I cut my papers to size, them used removable tape to glue them down to scrap paper staggered up and down. I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with WOW powders. Then separated the pieces and glued on my layout. 


So much quicker than doing each one individually!! 

So are you ready for my ingredient in the recipe??
