A Playful Combination

Hi Everyone!!!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer - can you believe that it is almost August?!?!  Holy!  I honestly have no idea where the time goes...

I am busy having a fabulous time at my Mom's Family Reunion this week but I decided to play along with a couple of challenges before I left and have this post for you today.  Maybe I'll share a few pics of the reunion once I get back home with you all - maybe I'll even do a Project Life spread - oooooh, I think that's what I'll do!!

Anyway, I'm a little off topic, here are a couple of challenges that inspired me this week:

1. Colour Me...!

This week is a super fun colour challenge!

This week is another fantastic sketch from these ladies - they are so talented!

And here is my card:
