Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge and Blog Hop!

Woo Hoo! Blog Hop day is here! The team at Frosted Designs has an awesome blog hop line-up for you with lots of prizes along the way, you have until Thursday Feb 16th at noon central to complete the hop!
If you arrived from Angela's blog, you are in the right place ~ if you stopped by to visit me (or if you're completely lost) and would like to start at the beginning of the hop - click here!

The Fabulous Friday Challenge this week is to use the word "Love" on your project - how easy is that!


It looks like my grandson Jacob is going to join the generations of my husband's family of "Boys Who Love Trains" and we couldn't be more thrilled!

My layout is based on this awesome sketch by Jenny Evans who is on the team at Boys Rule Kits as well as the Frosted Designs team. 
Boys Rule Kits is the sponsor of the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge this week!

So I guess you're wondering what words you need from me in order to complete your sentence for the blog hop - they are "it be". After you have visited all the blogs on the hop and have the complete mystery sentence, e-mail it to danica4us@yahoo.com.

I know you want to get on with the hop, so I'm not going to ask for anything more than a comment to be entered for the prize on my blog, but I would sure love it if you'd become a follower here and stop back some time and visit me again! One name will be randomly drawn from the comments to win this prize from me:

I hope you will make a project using the word "LOVE" and link it up at Frosted Designs this week! FD is an awesome challenge blog that gives special recognition to three projects every week and also gives a prize to one random draw winner EVERY week!

Your next stop is Erin's blog - happy hopping!

Now, this LO is right up my alley. So cute! Love the old BG and the train "border" in the middle, and the edge punch. Love it all. Most of all, Love those boys :)

Teresa Arsenault said...

I love your layout, Teresa. How clever of you to use a train blueprint for the backing. Such a treasured memory. Looking at all these wonderful layouts you FD designers are turning out, might just turned me into a scrapbooker.

Your grandchildren are adorable and I love that photo of Lizzie, surrounded by tennis balls.

I am happy to be your newest follower.

Blessings,
Another Teresa
