Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Cool Shades

{please scroll down for my Growing in Unity post}

It's Monday and that means it's time for another fabulous Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!  It's Cool Shades week and the challenge this week has some pretty cool shades.

These colours make me think of the sun, earth and water... not surprisingly, water won out (it might have to do with my love of the ocean).  Ocean theme means turning to the super cute Surf and Turf set. I think I use Sentiment Sampler more than any other stamp set and I've used it again here.  In addition, I turned to Kim's Designer Drafts for a sketch (again, cause I'm useless at sketches/layouts).

I hope you have a chance to play a long this week!  You have until Sunday July 22nd at midnight Pacific time to play along.  All the details are on the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge blog.  I can't wait to see what you come up with. Be sure to check out what the rest of the amazing design team has in store for you this week!  I know it will be fabulous... so lucky to be on such a talented team!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have an amazing week!
