ColourQ 50


Happy Tuesday to everyone, and it is a happy sunny one here in PA!  Aren’t these fun colors for an almost-fall day?  The ColourQ maven Arielle has chosen some of Stampin’Up!’s new In Colors for our palette this week!  I have back-to-school on my mind….isn’t it funny how even though I’ve been out of school for many, many years, this time of year still evokes those feelings of anticipation…shopping for new clothes, seeing old friends, the smell of  cafeteria food and well, you get the picture!  Anyway, I pulled out a Kim Hughes set for my back-to-school CQC card today:


I used the Fall to Layout 107 for my sketch (sort of):


and used several of the Patterns DP from SU to incorporate my colors.  This is such a fun set…..I kept getting ideas for using all the little elements, so you may see it again this week!  We’d love to have you play along with these fun fall colors, so scoot along over to the ColourQ blog and see what the other designers did…..and show us what YOU can do!  Even if you don’t have these exact colors, you can use something close!  So hop to it!
