Hi there! It's been a crazy week for me. We have been in San Diego Monday - Thursday evening with Connor and Meredith touring colleges around So Cal. Early tomorrow (Friday) morning, Scott and I will be catching a flight to San Francisco to visit Jerry and April for the weekend :) I'm so excited! I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss our weekly lunch / dinner dates. We may need a vacation from our vacation!

It's time for an all new Mixed Media Color Challenge. Thanks so much to all who joined along with challenge #3 ~ there were so many beautiful projects in the gallery! For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the following color combination: red, brown and neutral:
For this challenge, I altered a wooden heart that I bought long time ago from a local craft store in the clearance aisle. It cost $2 and I couldn't resist buying it because I knew I wanted to alter it at some point so here it is. I painted it with brown acrylic paint followed with a coat of crackle medium. 
I added a label made using a Die-namics Designer Labels 4 STAX die with a sentiment from LJD Cheerful Blessings stamped on it. and a little banner made using Die-namics Jumbo Banner Day STAX
I tucked a lace and a Kraft cs bunting made using Die-namics Jumbo Banner Day STAX with polka dots stamped from Distressed Background Blocks under a cluster of paper flowers. I finished it with a resin cherub.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~ I hope I have inspired you to mix things up! Please hop on over to A Mixed Media Color Challenge for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration from Sue!
Be Sweet ;)
