FHF – Kaleidoscope Krew’s Color Challenge #1!

Yes!  Today is the very first Kaleidoscope Krew Color Challenge on the Friends Having Fun blog!!  I’m so excited to be a member of this Krew!  The first Monday of each month we’ll have a Color Challenge picked out by the fabulous Alison.  Here are the colors Alison chose for our first challenge…

Aren’t they such pretty, happy colors? 

I actually ended up making two projects for this challenge.(I tend to get over enthusiastic sometimes);)

Here’s my first project…

It was a mixed nuts container! 

The toile print paper is The Paper Studio.  I’m not sure what the other papers are.

And here’s the project I finished last night…

My son flipped on the tv the other day and it happened to be a crafting show on!  They were making these little accordion style albums and I thought they were really cute, so, I decided to try one.  It was fun!

Paper from The Paper Studio, Creative Memories, and others that I don’t know.  Stamps used were JoAnn Craft Essentials Monogram Stamps.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you’ll join us with our challenge!:)

OMG I really AM sick!!! I was scanning through your post and thought you said TOILET paper instead of TOILE!! ROFL... Jeez. You did a gorgeous job on both projects. I agree with Ali, the second would make a fab tutorial!

Laura this is so "CUTE"! Perfect little projects. I think your little accordian album looks the right size for a clear checkbook cover. Wouldn't that be an awesome way to carry around your precious family?

Smiles!
