Colorthrowdown Wednesday!!

Hoop..Hoop...Hooray! It's wednesday and the week is half way over AND we have a long weekend {for most} here in the states!! My final card as the Guestie at Colorthrowdown... this week Lori is the hostess and she has chosen.. melon mambo, barely banana, gable green, and peach parfait. Here are the colors and inspiration pic....



My card....

"Kay... my barely banana is BANANA and I added a bit of black!! Just fessin' up early, LOL!! Stamped this adorable Lulu from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.... how many of you grew up in the hoola hoop craze? I did!! Peach parfait was embossed with a circle CB EF. Colored Lulu with copics. Added some ribbon and seam binding from the Ribbon Carousel {great sale going on until the end of August}. Double stacked buttons with twine and sentiment labels to finish. Sentiment labels are a MFT die, which I love, but there is a smaller set out now that might have worked better... only I don't have that set... yet, DANG!!

Just wanted to say THANKS to all the Colorthrowdown girls/DT for having me this month!! Had a blast and enjoyed the color challenges!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

LOVE this image and your super cool layout! I was, in fact, the hula hoop queen!! Ahem! I once hula hooped for 2.5 hours straight! Of course my legs gave out after that!! Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this month, Vickie! Your designs are awesome!!
