We have a Color Challenge for you!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I can't believe it has been an entire week since I posted my last project!! This moving thing is really getting in the way of my scrapping!! But, pretty soon, I will have the house all unpacked and then I will have all kinds of time to create!!


At Frosted Designs this week, we are challenging you to use peach and cream on a layout/card/project! And if you want to get really crazy, you can throw in some ribbon or something sparkly!! I chose to scrap this LO of my oldest daughter with her grandparents (my mom and dad) from about 15 years ago!! My parents have been so good to Courtney over the years and they have a really special relationship!! I am so glad they still live close to her since I moved so far away!! I miss my baby girl!! (okay.. she's 20... not really a baby!!)


I used a Martha Stewart die cut paper for the background and then layered it with several different DCWV papers!! And then I just went to town layering all kinds of flowers on it!! I added gem brads to some, glued microbeads to others and inked a few more!!  I painted a few chipboard embellishments with my perfect pearls, added some Prima flourishes and a butterfly and there you have it!!

So, now you need to head over to Frosted Designs to see what the rest of the design team did for you!! I always love how we can be given the same challenge and then come up with things that are so completely different!! Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win some digital stamps from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

You've done a fab lo, Barb! I love the color combo of peach and bashful blue, and all those flowers and embellishments are simply gorgeous!
And kids are always 'babies' to their parents... just look how your own parents go with you...

This is really a wonderful LO and the little details are too cute!
So the youngest 2 moved with you..must be so strange to have moved away from Courtney, so glad she still has family there!
Love this to pieces (makes me really appreciate my kids having Grandparents in their lives b/c I did not growing up and its great!)
