COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

This week's Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop features my favorite color! I'm so excited! 

Welcome to you who hopped on over from Helen's blog! Lots of fun happening over there! Be sure to keep hopping over to Miss Laura's blog next! It's so "la dee dah" over there! (wink wink!) But then keep going!!! There are 7 blogs on the hop this week! Lot's of good stuff & surprises to see!!!

Ok, the deets!

This week's colors are

Summer Starfruit, Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze
 OR
Summer Starfruit, Marina Mist, Real Red
Added Piece - make something other than a card - bookmark, flower, scrapbook page, etc.

Now, you might say, um, Baja Breeze? I did! Yup, it's retired! But silly me who waits til the last minute to put her project together doesn't do "primary" colors! See, when I put the 2nd batch together, it looks very primary to me! So I went with the first batch. Now don't yell at me! I know there's no Baja Breeze! So I may have broken a rule or 2. I substituted the color I thought was fairly close-Bermuda Bay. Hope it's ok with y'all!!!!

This week can't be a card either. Our added piece wants something different. Well I've been putting this idea together for my Mother's Day class in April. So I decided to use this week for my model!  Here it is!




So it's a little box that can hold 3x3 love notes! Now please excuse my pics! It's dark now & I tried to get a good shot. I had to use the glue gun for the flowers on the top. I can see in the pics that I forgot to pull those glue stringy things off!! Well, you get the idea!!!

Here are some close ups!



 
I used the new Spiral Flower die from the Occasions Mini for the flowers on the top! Works well for this kind of thing. Love these flowers but can't mail them for sure! lol The stamp set is Peaceful Petals!

So glad these were this week's colors! Summer Starfruit is almost gone forever! I LOVE this color!!!! I'm gonna be sure to stock up!!! I wonder what the new In-Colors will look like!

Happy Stampin'!!!
