Thank you SO MUCH to everyone that participated in the September challenges, and our first official blog hop. We had so much fun, and we hope you did too. Be sure to check out the INCREDIBLE prizes we have available for participants of the October challenges (including a Daylight portable crafting lamp valued at over $80!)
And here is some mid-week inspiration for you, using the October challenge #1, the Favorite color challenge. Evidently, our two designers today are looking a little GREEN around the gills!
First, Kas Mellow tells us why she is a fan of the color green.
“Green to me is everything wonderful, fresh, clean, healthy & relaxing.
I just had to use the Discount Cardstock Diamonds Parakeet for the background paper! (it’s my favorite!)
I used For the love of art stamps to stamps the hearts of the vellum. I used the word “heart” from the set also. I used a Zig Writer to add some doodles and journaling.”
Challenge prompts used :
2. Take a photo of something you love that is in your favorite color, and use it on your layout.
3. Use rounded corners somewhere on your layout.
4. Create hand-doodling somewhere on your page.
5. Make the name of your favorite color a prominent part of your title

Chelsea Langworthy has a total crush on the color green (and her daughter’s totally cute green jacket!)
“Green is my all time favorite color!!! In this layout my oldest daughter has this green polar fleece jacket from Old Navy on. This jacket is one of the cutest jackets I have ever seen!! I love the color (of course) and the toggle buttons are a must have for this jacket!!! I wish they made it in my size!! I would have one just like hers! Lol!! I don’t think she would appreciate that though!
I used the word Green in my title and in my journaling I am talking to the reader and to my favorite colored coat. I also hand doodled the glitter trail! Lol!! Unfortunately the trail didn’t turn out like I wanted it to.”
