Something New!!

The Challenge this week over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges is "Something New" - What a perfect challenge for the new year.
We would love for you to join in with this challenge (make sure you use a Tickled Pink Stamps image please) and be in the running to win a great prize!

Something new that I'm trying this year is brighter colours (I've always been a real vintage lover). It started when I found these gorgeous October Afternoon papers (Sidewalks) a few weeks ago. I'm also trying to use up the majority of this paper pad before I start another one. Hmmm, lets see how that goes - but you can see from my last few posts that I'm trying hard to do that! So, I'm using a new style, a new paper pad, and a gorgeous new image - isn't "Party Pinkette August" just adorable!!

Oh, Karyn! This is gorgeous! Love those papers! They are so sunny, warm, and happy! August is one of my favorites, and she looks wonderful in shades of gray! I'm always too afraid to try that, but it works brilliantly here! Love your big flower and button too! :)
