Dig Deep with Authentique's Fresh

For those of you who know my work, you'll know that I adore Authentique. This company produces high quality paper and embellishments in unique patterns and they do it with style. What I love most though, is how they promote a family atmosphere at their company and good values in their blogging, design team and presence in the scrapbooking industry. It is to this end that I actually feel happy when I take out my Authentique products and when FRESH became my design team assignment with Two Scrapbook Friends, I squealed with delight!

I thought i would share these designs with you a little bit at a time, and my first design is called Dig Deep. It features photos of my son on the beach. He kept telling me he was digging to the centre of the earth! Every evening he was covered in more sand than we left on the beach.

I added stitching on the background, jut followed the lines already on the paper! 
 I also used some Authentique stickers for my title accents. These sayings are perfect! I wonder (every time!!!) where they find such perfect words. My favourite here is : "I live for the days when my cheeks hurt too much from smiling". Isn't that fabulous?

Authentique has issued a color challenge and I am sure it is no small coincidence that it matches Fresh's colour palette perfectly! I hope your find yourself some FRESH (at Two Scrapbook Friends OF COURSE!) and play along. You could be entered to win some of their great products of your very own.

Until next time, keep doing what you love,
