Wednesday, October 29, 2008 Color Inspiration #28

So I've been meaning to do one of the Color Inspirations from and I finally had the time!!!! I'll have to plan to do these more often, cuz it sure helps inspire!! I'm part of the SBStampers here in Seattle Washington (Stampin' Up! group) and we're so lucky to be part of Julie Gunhus' downline!!!! What an awesome group! Anyway, we're going to have an event and I really needed an idea for my swaps! I'm soooooo happy that my design is all I will have to do next week is make a bunch of them!!! Whoooohoooo! (Caroline, are you proud of me????)
I also made a video to post on YouTube to share with fellow crafter/stamper/scrapbookers! (I am in the process of editing right now so tune in later!)
