Wednesday’s Color Throwdown
Today our hostess is Broni and she picked this interesting color combo to challenge us. And yes, it challenged me! But before I get into that…
I have re-entered the world of the living! Hurricane Irene knocked out our power for 5 days and internet for 6. I had so much catching up to do, but it could have been worse. So, sorry I have been absent for a while. On the bright side-yesterday was the first day of school! Lordy, I have been counting down the days!
First, Joey began the 3rd grade today…
Too cool for school he thinks!
Then my baby…Sean, started kindergarten today. Sigh. This is the only picture he let me take. He made a face, hid, or waved his hands every time I pointed the camera at him. This was taken on the bus on the way home. Finally, he smiled for me. He loved it!
Tomorrow is Sean’s first full day of school and my first time ever as a stay at home mom with both kids in school! Six whole hours alone! I have so much to do I don’t know what to do first! I know, deep breath, there will be so many days like this…but I am so excited!
Okay, now for my card. My peach parfait is more orange, but I love this paper from DCWV Café Mediterranean Stack. I used three patterns from the pad.
I used the PTI Mat Stack 4 Collection and Mat Stack die for the main label and sentiment. The flowers are all from Prima, some with buttons in the center and brads. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the body created with Viva Decor Pearls. The decorative border is another Martha Stewart punch.
The design team, and our September guestie, has some really beautiful samples to share – so check ‘em out! And don’t forget to visit the Color Throwdown to enter your own creation this week! Have a great day!!
