Do you like Circles?! You're gonna love this challenge!!

Friday, August 27, 2010

Hi Everyone..!!! It's Joni again, welcoming you back to Frosted Designs this week!!  How was everyone's summer?  My little guy went back to school August 11th, and August/September is a busy time for us...all 3 of our Birthdays (mine, husband & son) and our anniversary (18 years) and my parents anniversary (53 years) Autumn is my favorite time of year.  Plus it starts cooling off after being 110 degrees in Phoenix for 2-3 that's definately a reason to like Autumn, don't you agree? 

So, when I was trying to think of what challenge I wanted to present to you, I was thinking how much I use Circles....I really do LOVE circles....and one thing I realized that I've done a few times and have beeen happy with the result .... I use Ric-Rac to make a big circle.  I like to use Ric-Rac since it "bends" nicely and doesn't need any folds or doesn't get bunched up.....does that make sense?  Ok, go try it and you'll see what I mean.

Now if you don't have any Ric-Rac, you're welcome to use some other kind of fiber, fabric or ribbon. In fact, any decorative edge will do! And you don't have to do a Big can do a small one or several...or whatever inspires you--- Get Creative.

Here is a layout I did for this challenge, followed by 2 older layouts where I used the same technique.

This is your last week to be entered in for the drawing for the Lucky Girl Kit! Every project you submit gives you one entry! The winner will be announced Thursday!! Now take a look at what the rest of the Design Team did with their decorative edge circles!!

Diana use Fancy Pants Rusted Sun papers and embellishments that were perfect for these beach pictures of her son.

Using ric rac on this layout, Erika commented that she loves how easy it is to bend ric rac around circles.  It is a great way to highlight a photo that needs a little umph. The ric rac is a perfect fit anytime you need a little something extra for a layout!

Barb used her August Lucky Girl Kit again this week to create this LO of her daughter on her first day of preschool!

Debbie loves the added touch the rick rack gives to this layout of her daughter.

We would love to see all the fun and creative ways you can use decorative edge circles!
