live your life in color.



Hello!

For those of you that have been following me, know that I'm not afraid of a little color:


Orange, I love the color orange!

When my boy was younger, he wore a ton of orange (& tie dye so I could always find him!).  All the paper is from the Studio Calico October Card kit.

I used Pumpkin Orange Timeless Twine and threaded it through the wooden button.



I swiped Gelatos through the word color and used my fingers to smoosh the color around (definitely a technical term!).  

I think this is my first time using the Reverse Confetti Dream in Color set!

I was inspired by the November SFYTT:


Today's my day up on the Timeless Twine blog, I'd love for you to pop over there and say Hi!
