Color Throwdown Wednesday Meets CAS-ual Friday!

Hi and happy Wednesday!!! I've scheduled this post in advance because I'm on vacation this week!!! Hubby and I are on the Cape with Keithie, our first trip away from home as a family!

This week Kristin is our Color Throwdown hostess and she chose a unique group of colors for us to work with THAT I AM NOW IN LOVE WITH!!!!!! Have a look...

I had no idea what I was going to do with this week's colors until I checked out this week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge, CFC7, which is the color blocking technique!

And here's what I did....

It's pretty straight forward so I'll spare you the deets but I'll just mention how happy I am to have these word dies and coordinating stamp set from PTI. LURVE them!

Want to play along at the Color Throwdown? It's easy and F.U.N.! Head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog to read up on all the deets and visit the blogs of the design team to see loads of inspiring creations using this week's colors!
