Color Challenge #18

And now for the Color Challenge. Like I said I did a lot between Sunday evening and tonight, but just haven't been home. We got back from the birthday party at 9:30, then settled the girls in for the night. It was 10 by the time I got to work on the challenge. I wanted to do a layout and was having a thing for Pink Carnation. So I flipped through the new photos I printed (yes I know I'm supposed to be working on my old ones, but the new ones are more fun!!) and found these. Audrey's PJs are the inspiration for this week's color challenge. They are hand me downs from Caitie and are some of my favorite PJs. To play use at least 3 of the colors and comment me with a link to your art so I can add your link to my post here ^_~.

Pink Carnation
Baby Pink
Key Lime
Kiwi

Sue's Cute Cottage Floral Card
Marcia's Lovely Flower Sentiment Card
Sparkle's Purrfect Kitty Card and Alpha Xi Delta Layout
Jenn's Sweet and Simple Thank You Card
Stacy's Adorable Baby Layout
Jena's Fun Sunshine Layout

My Sample:



The only place I used Kiwi was on the watermelons. I used a Dec '07 page maps layout to do this one and it was pretty rushed since I wanted to get the color challenge done and posted. Sweetness of Summer and Hodge Podge Alpha stamp sets used. The retired B&T and just regular CTMH CS for the papers. All the white accents and ribbon are CTMH. The foam letters, pink ribbon, and pink brads are various others. Thanks for stopping by and have fun with the challenge!

And yes things are going much better with the car now. Insurance is paying for however long we need the rental until the work is done on our car. As for my glasses, I went to see if they would let me buy the same frames and put my lenses in the new set since I had just gotten them in the fall and they did! In like 10 minutes too, lol. We've had a crazy day with me running errands and trying to shop with the girls and Paul trying to get everything settled with the mechanics and the insurance and then the birthday party, but it's been a good day ^_~. Thanks for all the support I've gotten in emails and comments while we've been dealing with these life hiccups. It's helped so much to keep me going and trying to look at the bright side!

All of the layouts are gorgeous. Your pictures are always so amazing, what kind of camera do you use??? And the lighting for all of your posted artwork is always so crisp. What's the key???

Smiles,

Oh my! You have been busy! I just checked in yesterday evening and nothing new. Now, you have lots of new things posted. I love all the layouts. The dandelion goes perfect with the PP you used. I hope I can complete the CC this week. I am still stuck on last weeks. :-) Have a great day.
