Color Dare #183 ~ Crystal Blue, Honey, Pear, Thistle and White Daisy

This week the Design Team at Color My Heart is challenging you with the colors featured in the Penelope paper pack: Crystal Blue, Honey, Pear and Thistle. These are nice, bright colors and pairing it with the White Daisy really make the colors pop!

I had the perfect photos to use with the Penelope color theme. Recently our granddaughter had a birthday and we gave her a birdhouse and butterfly house kit. Pa helped her build the houses and I get to help paint with her! It was a lot of fun and she had a great time. When the time comes we'll help her find the perfect spots in her yard for the houses.

Everything you see other than the photos comes from the Penelope Workshop Your Way Scrapbooking Kit. The kit really did have everything I needed right there at my fingertips! I cut the sheet of PML style cards and used a few of those on my layout. The Penelope Compliments had all the embellishments to complete the layouts. It really was a fast and easy way to scrapbook!

You can buy the Penelope paper, Compliments, Washi Tape and Playful Puffies individually or all together as the Workshop Your Way kit which includes 2 sheets of White Daisy cardstock.

All products are Close To My Heart

Let me know if you need any help!


Now it's your turn to get creative. If you don't have the exact colors just use something close. You can make whatever you like: cards, layouts decor, the sky is the limit! Details on how to join us are in the sidebar of our home page. This color dare will close Thursday at 9:00pm CST. 
Hope to see your artwork!

Have a great day!
