Hi there! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Has Spring arrived in your neck of the woods? The Mercury is rising here in AZ and before we know it, we'll be surely be reading 100 degree +!

If you are looking to color your world with some bright and cheerful colors, I invite you to come play with this week's CR84FN Color Challenge!
This week we are playing with ORANGE, YELLOW AND KRAFT. The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Adam at embrace life photography.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the Mojo Monday Sketch 180:
I added a bit of shimmer and glitter to a Tattered Angels Butterfly piece and layered it on top of a stamped label from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 2 that was cut/embossed using a S4-162 Labels Two  die template.
Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs including our
