Color Me Friday

For my first Color Me Friday, I decided to use one of my favorite shirts as inspiration!
For my layout, I used Cosmo Cricket Early Bird, Pink Paislee Fascinating x2, Thickers, BG buttons, and some 7-Gypsies stickers. OH, and I found out that the SU Ticket corner punch's guide comes off, like the EK Success corner rounders. It gives you the postage stamp edge, as you can see in the red strip at the top! Another border punch idea!!
Remember, do a layout based on the color inspiration, link me to it, and I will share it on Sunday!
This is a challenge I did for AMR, the June Color Challenge. The fact that these are both color related it totally coincidental. The challenge was to use at least 3 colors of the rainbow. I couldn't help myself, and dug through my scraps for polka dotted paper in all 6 colors (not counting indigo).
Purple=American Crafts
Blue=Making Memories Fifth Ave
Green=SU Bella Rose
Yellow= Cosmo Cricket Early Bird
Orange=Crate Paper
Red=Sassafras Lass Hog Heaven
I also used an assortment of BG buttons, the purple and white ones are unknown. Letters are MM itty bitty's, and the chipboard is BG.
Got some scrappy mail today.
This first one is the coffee swap at Split Coast. I am a little disappointed, it was a 8+1, meaning you swap for 8 and the hostess gets to keep one. Do you notice any similarities between the one I made a while back and the one in the top left corner? That is because it is mine! I got ripped off, I wasn't supposed to get one of my own back! I feel cheated. Oh well, at least the postage didn't get canceled on my package, so I WILL reuse it, lol!
I got this RAK today from Jessica and Patti from AMR for being The Queen of Crop! Look at all this cute stuff, there is even a journal that says Crop Queen!! Thanks Ladies!
That is all I have for today.
The beach trip is cancelled, due to a scheduling problem with 2 of the kids. Oh well, next time. It isn't like I don't have anything to do, right? I am signed up for 4 more swaps already, and am getting behind on challenges. Gotta run, I need to get some sleep, lol!

Great layouts, I love all the buttons used on the 2nd one. Sorry to hear about the beach but looking on the bright side, you now can go and enjoy all of your new loot!!
I say it's a win win situation!!

Marylin, Love you First Lo, they are all great. I did a LO using your shirt colors for inspiration, I'll post it on my blog. Funny about the swap. I wanted to go to the beach also, and my cousin visited me instead, it was nice.
