enjoy .... SPRING BREAK !!!!

I haven't gotten the amount of stamping done over my spring break like I had hoped but will hopefully do some catching up over the next couple of days ... cross your fingers! I about jumped for joy when I saw Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #46 today! What a fantastic color combination -- BASIC BLACK, RIDING HOOD RED, REGAL ROSE, PRETTY IN PINK, and BASHFUL BLUE. I was completely inspired by the patterns in the inspiration fabric. I used the stamp set, Enjoy Every Moment and paired it up with this week's SCS Sketch Challenge #220.RECIPE
