Life is Better When.....

Well...there's no question about that sentiment, is there?
Playing with these colors and fun designer papers
is TOTAL FUN for me!

As one who hosts a color challenge, I am all too
happy to participate in others.  I love working with
a variety of color combos and THIS one over at
is just right for me!

I focused on this great color pattern from Cosmo
Cricket's 'Early Bird' collection.  It has such
a retro feel for me.  Of course, my childhood was
spent in the whole of the 60's and this pattern for
me takes me back.  Now the colors on the other
hand, take me back to my teen years in the
decade of the 70's where this green was

I used the Cuttlebug 'Stylized Flowers'EF and distressed it to 
really make it POP.  This is by far one of my favorite EF's I own.
Of course, you can't go wrong with a little polka dot ribbon
to tie it all together.  The sentiment is from Cloud 9 Design.

So here is what I want to know....

Name something that brings
FUN to your life...

Hope you will leave a comment and 
share your thoughts....
