Love You...Love These Colors!



I am super-excited about this week's challenge
over at The Play Date Cafe and here's why....

 
Just look at these bold, beautiful colors.
This is an actual photo taken by our
Color Story Coordinator, Jaclyn Miller.
It's a bit of architecture in Michigan
and it's beautiful!

BTW...make sure you read the amazing
news regarding Jaclyn over in The Cafe.
She was just recognized for a pretty amazing
contest and is on her way to 'cruisin' very soon!


So here is my take on this week's color story.
A big thanks to My Mind's Eye for providing
the perfect designer paper...it's as if it was
made to order! (details listed below)
I also love my 'Scaredy Crow' punch
from Fiskars.  I love their limited edition
punches and usually try to get one or two each
time they are released.
 

This week we are sponsored by...


Practicing Creativity is a returning sponsor
to The Cafe.  Courtney was kind enough to
provide our design team with a variety of
stamp sets to play with.

We look forward to having you play along

with us.  There is so much fantastic inspiration
by our design team...so come play!
