A Colorful Challenge

Busy, busy day ahead. I am packing up and trying to get ready for my trip to CHA! I CAN NOT wait!!!!! Lots of laundry to finish today so that my sweet family has clothes to wear while I am gone. Need to also finish up two projects before I go and I am helping out in the school library today as well. .
Finished up a layout for Magistical Memories yesterday that I thought I would share with you today. There is a fabulous challenge going on for January. All you need to do is create a layout using your favorite color and you could win all of the 31 new releases from Magistical Memories. Check out the details here. My favorite color has been red for as long as I can remember. It just makes me happy. :) Anyway I love using red with brown and teal so I threw a little bit of that into my layout as well.
I used the scallop lace border by Magistical Memories under the photos. I painted it white and then added UTEE to it to give it a little extra shine. The brown ribbon is folded over and then I added some red buttons for color. I just adore these teal Prima flowers. I may have to get some more, my stash is almost depleted. :)
That sweet little bird is also Magistical Memories. I also painted him and covered him with UTEE. I then painted the Antique Filigree with brown paint and mounted the bird on it.
Make sure to check out the challenges and contests at Magistical Memories. I would love to know if you are going to be at CHA too. I would love to meet some of my on-line friends! Have a great week!

Hey! I just popped over to say that I saw your lovely layout in CK's February issue. I just got a chance to sit down and look at it. I'm always so glad to see your work in print because you deserve it! You are so talented and such a humble, kind person on top of that! Congrats to you my friend!
