Fabulous Friday Challenge! Black & White + 1!

Friday, June 24, 2011

Good morning! Welcome back to another Fabulous Friday challenge! We thought we would try a color challenge for you this week... but don't worry! With this challenge you get a choice! We are asking you to use Black and White + 1 color of your choice!! You can make a card, layout or project! We want to see them all!

We would like to start by welcoming our Guest Designer.... Ashley!

Hi Everyone!  My name is Ashley Horton and I am a Southern girl, who has been married to my husband, Tyler, for 12 years (our anniversary was actually on the 19th!).  We have three fun and energetic kiddos - Madison 5, Emma 3, and Reese 2 - who keep us on our toes!  I have been a SAHM since the summer of 2008 and it was one of the best decisions for our family.  I was introduced to Scrapbooking not long after we had our first daughter.  I always had an interest for art, so this sounded like a fun hobby...little did I know I would quickly become a Scrapbook addict!!  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and try to work on a page at least 4 or 5 days a week.  Nap time and bed time for the kids are usually my best scrapping times...and sometimes I can entertain them with a cartoon or two early in the morning!  I am a big fan of several challenge blogs and I think joining in different challenges is a great way to grow and stretch your creative abilities. Other than Scrapbooking, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and helping out or participating in our church's activities. I am so excited to be a part of Frosted Designs, as the Guest Designer, this week. I had so much fun creating this layout based on this week's challenge and I look forward to the Sketch Along and Fabulous Friday challenges every week. Can't wait to see what everyone creates this week!!

Ashley would love it if you would stop by her blog to say HI!! Click HERE!
