GCA #90 - Colors of Memories!

Hello all!!!  Hopefully things are back to more of a normal pace now, but one never knows!!  Today, my son, Misty and Malaki are moving out of my apartment!!!  I am so happy to have my apartment back, finally!!!  Love my son, but he would stay forever if I let him!

Here's a pic of my girlfriends I spent the weekend at Memories Manor with.  Now that I am home, and have pictures taken of what I accomplished that weekend, I'll get them loaded soon.



For this week's challenge we are focusing on the colors of Memorial Day.  As most of you know, tomorrow May 31st, is Memorial Day here in America.  I associate the colors of this day with the colors of our flag, Red, White and Blue.  I know that some people put these colors with the Fourth of July, and so do I too, but they also help to remind me what Memorial Day is really about.


So, for this week's challenge you need to incorporate the colors of Red, White and Blue on your creation.  It does not need to be a patriotic creation or specific to Memorial Day, but just include the colors.  And you can use any shade/hue of these colors.  I'm finishing up my sample which uses Riding Hood Red and Blue Bayou.

For my sample I took a 6x6 page I created of Cameron and "transplanted" it onto a 12 x 12 page.  The 12 x 12 is RHR.  The center blue is Blue Bayou and the 6 x 6 is using River Rock.  Both Riding Hood Red and River Rock will be back in the new catalog starting July 1st!!!

The dsp I used is the Western Sky, which also has the colors of Soft Sky and Ruby Red.

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by June5, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts or Stamp TV, please put GCA90 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!


Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!
