Once Upon a Springtime **Just Tracy's Crafts Challenges with Frosted Designs**

I have the wonderful opportunity to be the GDT for Just Tracy's Challenge Blog this month.

The theme this month is "wings and things" and I thought what is better than faeries, butterflies, and angels.  So head on over and join the fun!!

The pictures are of my little girl Kristen when she was 3 months old.  We were at the picture studio taking these and she was just hamming it up for the camera.  She was cooing, smiling, sticking her tongue out, and just being so sweet and innocent.  One of the only times I put her in a dress, but she was wearing a cute little pink collared polo dress with matching pink bloomers.  I miss her so much.

I had fun with my glitter in this LO.  I glittered the fairy, the chipboard pieces, and parts of the cut out flowers.  It is so hard to see all the dimension and shimmer this layout has, but in real life it just sparkles!!  Tip when using loose glitter, use really good glue, don't be skimpy in the application of your glue (I like Martha Stewart glue the best) and if there are patches of bald no glittery spots when you are done, just apply more glue and reapply more glitter!!

I had fun with all my flourishes by glittering them to make them shine!!  You can head on over to Frosted Designs and enter in the flourish challenge.
