Hi everyone!

I hope you have all had an enjoyable July! I’ve been a little MIA, as I usually am in the summer (except for release weeks) since my children are home from school and I try to get out almost daily. They are like fish this summer and long for the water, so my time is spent by some body of water, be it the town pool, a lake, beach or sprinkler park. I’m sure you are all much the same, as I.

So, this week I participated in the Pretty Palette Challenge #17!



Granted my entry is a very loose interpretation on the colors…but it was a start!

OK so its HEAVY on the orchid, but I couldn’t resist! I didn’t plan on all the yellow…but hey, it was the Palette that got me going. The Pretty Printables Digital Paper:Hearty Stripes © does have the navy and blue in it, so I cheated a bit!!

I used the Sheila Seahorse  from the  Underwater Wonderment  set (Sheila Seahorse <—also available in a single) as my main image. The swimming trail is actually from the Bee-Loved © set (available in both digi and acrylic), and the sentiment from one of my fave sets Sensational Sentiments © (available in both digi and acrylic), for my sentiment, which I thought was cute since the  seahorse is swimming along, off the card.
