Welcome back to Frosted Designs! Kim here again to host the challenge this week. You can check out my blog here. You already know what a scrapaholic I am, how I love to scrap my little kids, and my obsession with ink. Since most of you are getting your kiddos ready for back to school, today I'm going to share my back to school with you...
* I teach third grade
* Our first day of school is Monday, August 9
*My favorite children's author is Megan McDonald (Judy Moody series)
*I never eat cafeteria food at school, I always brown bag it
*I arrive at school by 7:05 each day and usually stay late.
Now, I bet you want to know what this week's challenge is.....Today is my Granny's 84 Birthday!!! Happy Birthday Gran! So, in her honor, I'm challenging you to "Celebrate Life". This can be anything from baptisms, birth, birthdays, celebrating family vacations, to prom, etc. I decided to scrap a page of my Gran with Ashlea and Megan while my family was at the beach.
I simply adore this paper by Making Memories, I just added a hint of stickles to highlight the flowers and the beautiful blue birds. All supplies on this paper are Making Memories and Close to My Heart.

Check out what the rest of the Design Team did!
Diana used a photo of her daughter Monica's Baptism as a symbol of celebrating hew baby daughters new life in Christ.
Cassie interpreted this challenge by making a page about one of her passions. Cooking, eating and learning about food is one of the ways in which she celebrates life.
For her layout, Jessica celebrates the miracle of life. When her daughter, Sophia, was born, she was not breathing and was in severe distress. Sophia spent three days in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) before she was able to be held by her mommy. Though the time spent in the hospital was very scary, it made everyone realize how precious life is.
