Blogger's Challenge #134: Pink, Brown, White

This week our list Mom challenged us to use pink, brown & white.  We just got done painting my daughter's room in pinks so I've had some paint swatches laying around and wanted to put them to use. I did use a little bit darker than the "normal" pink but it worked well with the paint swatch.  I combined this with a challenge on my other group for a rock 'n' roll technique.

ETA: I started this sentence last night and this morning remembered I never finished writing it.  LOL-TGIF
Can I just say I was so thrilled when I saw Dawn McVey's tutorial on how she ties her bows!  I've used it several times now and one of these days I'll be able to tie one of "her bows" without watching the tutorial.

I'm getting so excited as I will be going to CHA next week and meeting up with our list Mom, Lisa...can't wait to see her again, along with a lot of my other stamp buddies!!!  I'm bursting at the seams with so much excitement to see all the new products, meet some stamping idols, catching up with friends, etc.

Make sure that you check out the other blogger's here for their creations.
