Scrapbook/Creative Retreat Inspiration meets COLOR challenge with Just Us Gals!


Greetings from sparkly Ukiah, CALIFORNIA!!!!!  I'm talking to you, LIVE,
from a wonderful crafty/scrapbooky retreat - one HAPPY way to be sharing
with you all, my latest creation for Just Us Girls!  {We're a COLORFUL crew!}


I love a good color challenge that FORCES me to step away from my deep
need for literal translation/reality, so a limited palette REALLY does make
me reach - for - IT!  And this one DELIGHTED me with the outcome! But,
speaking of delight... CHECK out my crafty cohorts of JUGS fame!


{Aren't they the DARLINGEST!?!}

But don't hate me because I have such crafty and talented friends...


Hate me because... 


I have LOTS and LOTS of talented and crafty friends! 


And SOMETIMES, we even get together and PLAY!!!!!! 

Wish YOU were here, too!  Hope you get some SERIOUS crafty time,
WHEREVER you are!  And hope to see your lovely work in the mix
with Just Us Girls this week!   Enjoy!

Supplies - 

C/S - Wplus9 Design Studio; S/U!
Stamps - Wplus9 Design Studio
Ink - CTMH
Twine - My Stash
Sand - My friend Claire's STASH!
