Frosted Designs #48 'View' and a fond farewell

It's my last challenge for the Frosted Designs DT.

I am sad to be leaving but looking forward to some new challenges. FD was the very first challenge site I ever came across and so will always hold a dear place in my heart :0)

This is a photo heavy warned!!!

background paper is Glitz Design (I think!) and letters are DCWV from many moons ago

lots of layers of loveliness :0)

splats of ink and doodled hearts

the circle is from the tutorial I did for FD, the resin flower is an old Prima and the wooden flower has been striped with a Pro Marker

another oldie...Bo Bunny charm thing

a die cut piece of transparency, a misted canvas heart and a really old American Crafts resin doo dad

my journaling gets tucked behind the photo, you can also see some old Anna Griffin felt border strip
It wasn't until I wrote this that I realised how much of my old stash I had dug out! Oh how that makes my heart sing :0)

Here is the sketch from the lovely Karin that was my starting point:

Thanks for popping in,

Ali x 


  1. This sketch is awesome & you've rocked the colours & splotches & doodling & most of LOVE that you've used up your stash:):):):). Sad re: FD, tho:(

  2. Oh my Ali isn't this just THE most delightful page! absolutely aaaadorable photo! You're just like Debbi Tehrani, mixing and matching old and new with a fabulous result. I do that far too seldom, involves quite a bit of pulling out boxes I'm afraid so I go for the newest stuff which is at the top ha ha! This looks so fresh and so darling, beautiful design! Yes, when one door closes another one opens so I'm sure you'll have something up your sleeve to share with us soon ;)) xoxo

  3. Awesome!!! Love your layout! Great design and stunning colour to choose too!!!

  4. So sad to see you leaving us, but have to say that your last layout is my favorite of all your clever and creative layouts! A precious picture, lovely layers and oodles of splatters and hearts! I will continue to follow you, anxiously waiting to see what you create!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment, it means so much. I read each and every one :0)
