Happy 5th Year Anniversary Color Throwdown!!

If you are looking for my Serendipity Stamps post, please scroll down, or click here.

YES, that's correct- it is the Color Throwdown's 5th Year Annivaersary!! Whoo Hoo!! That's a long time for a challenge blog, IMHO,  and they are celebrating!!

As part of the celebration previous DT members and Guest Designers were invited to join in. I was a Guest Designer last year [and had a fabulous time BTW} so of course, I wanted to join the fun!!

This week's colors were picked by Lori and it is a summertime theme.


When I first saw the colors and image.... I soooo wished I had some flip flop stamps/dies {I'll be rectifying that soon, LOL} Not just for the image but, I AM a summer flip flop kinda girl!!

What I do have are these fabulous stamps by Waltzingmouse-- My Island. .



How perfect are these stamps.... screams summer!! I stamped the solid image and sun image with melon mambo and so saffron- cut them out to make corners behind the focal image. Aren't those palm trees wonderful and the font on the sentiment- to die for!! Distressed some edges, added a few buttons and some twine. Fun!!

Okay- now to the nitty gritty- there are prizes, I believe, lots of prizes to be given away this week!!Check out all the details on the Color Throwdown blog!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
