STM, LRW, PS, Mojo Monday and DD

I have some creations for you for many challenges...

Up first is our new song at Scrapping the Music
Remedy by Jason Mraz
I have to admit, one of my absolute favorite things to take pictures of is fireworks... I really love sitting and photographing them... maybe it is because you get to enjoy them later as well!
These pictures are from July 16th from our local carnival.
I hope you come play along with us at Scrapping the Music this week.

Design Dollies inspired the next three creations with their color challenge this week.... when I saw the colors yellow, kraft and white I knew it was going to be challenging since I have never used that color combo before... but when I got to playing, I must admit it is now one of my favs!

Daffodill delight, Crumb Cake and Whisper White
Apple Blossoms
One of my technique classes coming up will teach you how to make these gorgeous flowers!
P.S. check out the daffodil delight ribbon... yes, I dyed it!

This second card, I created for DD, PS and LRW!
I thought this just screamed summer!!!
Love that color combo again.
I dyed the lace and flower to be yellow
In a Word
Tart and Tangy
Extreme Elements

I think one of my all time favorite cards...
Inspired and created for DD and Mojo Monday
Thanks for stopping by... go try out a new color combo today... you may just find a new favorite!
