challenge yourself! ...and giveaway!

Good morning! Isn't it a beautiful day?!?

I woke up this morning with a renewed spirit...maybe it's because the kids are going back to school next week. Maybe it's because we are FINALLY getting a break from the completely unbearable temperatures & humidity we've been having lately (cabin fever in August?!?! Really?!?!). Maybe it's because I already know what we're having for dinner tonight (and it's not pizza & cinnamon toast). Whatever ever it is, it's there and I feel great!

And I am going to use this great day to do something I've wanted to do for a long time...start sewing again!!! Yay!!! I've been so wrapped up in my scrapbooking that I've forgotten what it's like to cut into a beautiful yard of new fabric. But today is the day...

I was completely inspired by the colors on the new issue of Better Homes and Gardens that arrived last week.


Although these colors have become my favorites for Christmastime (thank you, Martha Stewart), I think they would look great in a new quilt or handbag...maybe even a fun pillow for the family room! So, in keeping with this color scheme, I'll be creating with the awesome new line from Cosmo Cricket...Early Bird.



Aren't these prints fantastic? Completely retro and kitschy...love 'em.
Maybe I'll throw together a scrapbook layout, too, with these awesome prints and colors...;)

Now, here's your challenge...take this color scheme and create something! Anything! Something with paper, something with fabric, something with sticks and glue...anything! Draw a picture, take a photo, find a photo that features these colors online - just create!

Leave a comment with a link to a photo of your creation before Monday, August 23rd (giveaway ends Sunday, August 22nd at midnight) and you will be entered to win 1 of 2 free 1-year subscriptions to Better Homes & Gardens...a wonderful magazine & a major source of inspiration for me.

Want a couple more chances to win? Leave me a separate comment for each entry...

  2. Here is a picture of my sweet little girl wearing a red and turquoise hair pretty! I wish I would have had time to do another photo shoot in this cute little outfit (since you can't see her clothes) but we ran out of time --- I read about this contest after I had already taken this picture. :)
