♥ oa color challenge ♥

i'm sorry for the late post today, i received the dreaded school phone calls saying that my youngest "my crash" had tripped going down the stairs on the jungle gym playground and hit his head on the metal arm rail.  his eyes weren't dilating properly, he had a headache and the nurse wasn't real comfortable taking no actions since his eyes weren't dilating correctly.  i came, picked him up and away to the ER we went.  thank God he doesn't have a concussion (went through my first one of those with my daughter last year) and his eyes are starting to return to normal.  my little guy, he can make me swallow hard, real hard, just putting his arms around me, giving me a big kiss on the cheek and saying "i'm ok mama"....yep, almost lost it then.  we had lunch and it was the best cheeseburger he ever ate (so i believe)

today i was up with Mou on the OA blog.  she challenged us with a color challenge today and it was so inspiring and fun

isn't that amazing?  love it, every last sprinkle of it.

i decided to create a card using the Woodland Park line, i love the colors and design of this line and was really excited to see what i could come up with using it.

i love all the chip and stick elements, the stickers, the patterns, the colors, it makes me truly happy

i hope you'll stop by the blog and see the adorable card that she created for this challenge

also, today was my last post for My Scrapbook Nook.  as you may have read, the 'Nook will be closing it's doors at the end of September.  pam and leah are ready for new adventures in their lives, adventures they have prayed over and prepared for during the last few months, and they will be retiring.  it is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to our "home away from home".  

so i decided to make my last monday CARDS challenge a sketchy one.  there are papers and elements in this kit that would work so well with the sketch and i hope it inspires all of you.

and here is my card using the August kit


i hope you'll stop by the 'Nook forum and see the other gorgeous cards the dt created
