Cutting Cafe' Winner and a Color Scheme!

Good morning and happy weekend to you! First I want to announce the winner of the Cutting Cafe' giveway! Random.org chose number 14!!! (For some reason I can't get it to copy and paste to my blog.)
This means Crystal is the winner!
She said: "OOOOO WEEE Michele I LOVE this the lemons look FABULOUS and the added sparkle for sugar SOOOOO CREATIVE!!!! AWESOME work sweetie! "

Congrats Crystal!!! : )

I have a fun color scheme for you today! I found this picture on the Better Homes and Gardens web page. I loved all the white space with dashes of pink, green, and orange. So I decided to use this is as inspiration for a page about Cortney.

Cortney loves the water. She lives for the water. She is a fish in the water! Her little crippled body becomes FREE in the water! So every year I have to take pics of her participating in her favorite activity. I used Noel's Sun-Kissed kit (sold out) and my Cricut H20 cartridge to create the sun. I kept the LO clean and simple. (Which is a pretty big change from my usual "layered like crazy" LO's!)
I inked the edges of the sun and hand stitched the perimeter. I love the depth and interest it adds.


I also added clear buttons tied with brightly colored twine and clear Dew Drops to emulate water.
Have you seen Noel's latest kit, Sweet Sue? It goes up for sale August 20th! Click HERE to see peeks........it is another fabulous kit!
Hope your weekend is wonderful! I am heading on a "Date" with the hubby tomorrow night. Dinner and a movie. I love our time together.......
