Love them!!! Here’s what I wrote on the FHF Blog:

Happy June!!! It's time for another Color Challenge with the Kaleidoscope Krew! This month, I chose some pretty wild colors... but don't be intimidated!!! Your mission is to work with Hot Pink, Lime Green, and Plum Crazy. Hot right??? Here's what I think of when I see these colors... the 80's, little girl's clothes, muscle cars, eyeshadow, hair color (wait...is that just me???). So many incredible options! What can YOU come up with???

Before I get to what the Krew has come up with for this month, I would like to make an announcement. Sadly, my dear friend Julie needed to say goodbye to the Krew and move on to some bigger adventures. I wish her all the best, and hope that she can pop in once and a while when time allows. We all love you, Julie!!!!!!! But on the bright side, another dear friend of mine, Danielle Hayes (from the Smeared and Smudged DT) has stepped in to take Julie's place. Please give Danielle a warm welcome to the Kaleidoscope Krew! She is going to be a wonderful addition to the team for sure! That woman is super inspiring! Prepare to be wowed!

Ready to see my creation?

Here’s my boy, lookin’ spiffy in his brights! How many little boys could rock a hot pink shirt and a neon green hat (authentic from the 80’s! It was my sister Pam’s!) like Phoenix can? The hat is much brighter then it is in this photo. Granted, I am not fond of the hat…but that shirt??? Fab-u-lous!

I drew in the silver circles and blue swirls using a stencil. I am totally into stenciling things right now! Then I embellished the page a bit with 3 colors of Stickles. I do love the tab that I left on the KI paper. The name of the paper is called “Wild Thing Stripe.” Perfect! And I love the bar code and the little dots of color to show what other colors are used in this collection of paper. I just thought it was a funky, unexpected touch. And I just needed to use my Martha Stewart punch on the edge of my journaling block. Please click on any of the pics to see them bigger.

I am not entirely sure I’m done with this layout… I think it needs something…I’m not sure what though. Dimensional, I think. Vivid2

I added some buttons, just for kicks. I like them here. I’m not always a button person, but I think they work really well with this page. All in all, I like the page. Nix loves it, of course!

So please go and visit the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew over at the FHF blog. You will certainly be inspired by what they have created! Make sure you give Danielle a warm welcome! Have a fantastic day!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
