I had SO much fun working up today's color challenge. I was stuck on colors since Millie used red, white and blue for last week. I decided that the best place to find a color inspiration piece would be to flip through my magazines, so I grabbed Southern Living and started flipping. (Side note, my husband rolled his eyes when I said I was working.)
I came across this beautiful photo all about hydrangeas. I have a beautiful bush right outside my window and it started the wheels turning. My bush happens to be blue.... my new Creative Imaginations papers are pink, blue and green, my new Elizabeth Bell stamp has flowers on it, AND I have Summertime Flower Soft sitting on my desk! Destiny. I love it when a plan comes together.
Here's a close up look at the Flower Soft -- I love how it makes the image leap off the page.

Bonus idea: As I was working on today's color challenge, it occurred to me that I could store Flower Soft in those Parmesan cheese/crushed red pepper shakers that they have in restaurants. It would always be handy and cute on my desk -- and ready for me to use in a pinch!
