Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge 9-30-11 Fussy Cuts

I guess everyone can tell by the layouts on my blog, that I really love to photograph and then scrapbook my son, Ezra! And much of what he wears, and what we do involves bright colors! So here we are at our local amusement park, Tweetsie Railroad, on one of my favorite rides: The Merry Go Round! I am really not sure the difference between a carousel and merry go round, but we sure do love them!

As a very thankful member of the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Design Team, I was challenged to do fussy cutting! For this layout, I cut out the 5 clouds from a piece of My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Out of The Blue "Smile" Float Paper, and the 2 carousel horses from a piece of Best Creations, Inc. Looops and Scoops paper. Boy, those carousel horses were very fussy!!! LOL!

I added Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Faded Jeans with a stiff bristle brush to the top edges of the clouds, and adhered them with foam circles! For the horses, I also adhered those with foam, and for a "Twist" of fun, I used Lime Twist baker's twine, 2 strands twisted, for the poles of the carousel! I hope you like it!

My best tip for fussy cutting -- use a pair of sharp, fine or microtip scissors! It will save you time and frustration! Keep an eye out for a new challenge each Friday at Frosted Designs!
