July Parade of Blogs

This month, we were challenged by our hostess with the mostess, Amy, to use Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate to create something fabulous with our Papertrey goodies.


Some of these colours were not my friend (yeah, I mean you Ocean Tides) and forced me to go WAAAY outside my comfort zone by using so much colour. Since I was trying something new, I decided to really shake things up and go big, and go square. I also decided to let the patterned paper be the star of the show. When it uses all four colours, it deserves to take centre stage.



Now, excuse me while I blog-hop. I can't wait to see what the other ladies have created. If you'd like to join me, the hop starts here. Thanks for swinging by!

The Details ...
Stamps - Enjoy the Ride (PTI)
Paper - ocean tides (PTI), cameo coral (SU), October Afternoon dp
Embellies - ribbon (Michael's)
Tools - Corner Chomper
