Fabulous Friday Challenge - Buttons!

Friday, July 22, 2011

This week's challenge is sooooo easy, EVERYONE can play along with us! Our sponsor this week is Buttons Galore and More so we thought it would be perfect to challenge you to use buttons on your cards, layouts and projects! This is one supply we all have and we would love to see the creative ways you use buttons!

We would like to welcome this week's Guest Designer..... Veronica!

Hello! My name is Veronica Rosman and I am so excited for the chance to be your Frosted Designs Guest Designer.

I have always been a creative person. At the age of 7, I wrote a whole “article” about the Cleveland Browns football team losing to the Pittsburg Steelers. I went on to write poetry, short stories and eventually became a newspaper reporter. Although I loved being a reporter, it wasn’t the creative outlet that I expected it to be. So, I turned to scrapbooking. I had total creative control – nobody could tell me what to scrapbook. I could use any photo arrangement I liked, pick the papers I liked and add the stickers I liked. Plus, I could write about things that interested me, including my husband, my dogs and eventually my kids.

Once I became a stay-at-home mom in 2002, scrapbooking became a chance to get together with my friends and enjoy some time as an adult. I could reflect on my children through my photos and often returned home a much better mommy. Over time, I started teaching scrapbooking to others. Teaching allowed me to share my passion and skills and in turn, my students helped refuel my creativity. I teach all scrapbooking levels and techniques, but I specialize in the Cricut machine. I love that bug!

Veronica has more pictures and all the details of how she made this adorable card on her blog! She would love it if you would visit! Click HERE!

Before we show you what our Designers did this week, we would like to wish ANDREA a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! (Her birthday was actually yesterday but better late than never!! lol!!)

"thank you very much" (which is the sentiment on my card entry for the button challenge. Used one button on my entry for just the right touch. Hope one button is enough for a valid entry in this challenge. Bee happy.
