Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15






I've decided to try my hand at another Dawn McVey Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. I admit, I was feeling pretty charged after landing (much to my surprise) "In the Spotlight" on the last challenge! And thanks, by the way, to all of you for your kind comments! So here's what I came up with this time around:


Aren't these colors great? They seem very fruity and fresh. Those were the two words that came to mind instantly when I saw the colors. Melon Berry hasn't really been my favorite of the PTI colors, but using the Melon Berry ink on top of it really changed the overall look - much more orange and a lot less peach. And I just got the 2009 Autumn Tags set in the mail Friday and I love the sentiments! I'm such a font girl, and I love the combination of the two fonts used. I will be playing more with this set very soon!

I hope you are all having a great weekend! Next up for me is a lot of laundry and (once again) cleaning and reorganizing my daughter's room. How can one child collect so much stuff?!?

Note to Mel: Please email me so that I can answer your questions regarding my Bind-it-All!
