Fancy a challenge?

The new monthly challenge is up on the Sarah's Cards Blog - loads of inspiration from the design team, and a £10 e-voucher up for grabs so get creating!

I've been playing along with The Color Room again - this week's palette was a gorgeous mixture of blues and greens with a little brown thrown into the mix. Perfect for one of our London Eye photos taken last year when we spent the day in the capital for our 1st wedding anniversary. Not only do you get a fab colour selection to inspire you, there is also a sketch provided each week, and I loved this week's so stuck to it pretty closely. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I even used up a few really old scraps - got to be a bonus right?!

Bump update!

We had our 20 week scan yesterday - we are now over halfway!
Everything looks perfect with baby which is such a relief to know, and the best birthday present ever!
We decided against finding out if baby is a girl or boy - we will have a lovely surprise on delivery day. It was a bit wierd knowing that we could find out if we are having a son or daughter, but we stuck to our guns! So for now we are embracing greens, yellows, creams & whites, and I have a couple of things in rainbow colours!

The Color Room

I found a link to The Color Room over on Leanne's blog a little while ago - each week they post a palette of 4 colours, along with a sketch to inspire you. I loved this week's colours because they almost perfectly matched our wedding colours - pink, green, cream and lilac. We didn't have much purple, but hey, it's close enough!
