Embrace Life

My girlfriend, Mary and I did a couple challenges today. One used Beate's inspiration dress she found from J C Crew. The challenge was to use the colors or the pattern as inspired by the dress. Here is my take on it.

The simplicity of the dress and design made it much harder than I anticipated! I usually like to finish the challenges with Mary within 30-45 minutes. This one I ripped apart after 45 minutes and went a different direction! It just didn't come together easily. I do think my finished result has the nice clean lines like the dress...what do you think? Colors I used are Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Apricot Appeal. I did use the Twill background on the is just hard to see.

After showing you my studio yesterday, I did some rearranging. I went back to The Container Store and purchased some additional baskets for my ribbon. And, I found this great little cart for my punches to sit in next to my working desk! I'll take some pictures tomorrow after I get it put back together.
Several of you have asked for directions on making the little Tart & Tangy treat pouches. Here is the website I used: Pouch

Have a great evening. We are supposed to get thunderstorms tonight...but the last few days have really felt like spring. The trees are starting to bud out. However...that dreaded word "SNOW" is in the forecast for the weekend! Yuck!
