(Heart and Soul) Color Me Scrappy - The Last Challenge of this Term + Changes Coming to CMS!

There are a lot of changes coming to Color Me Scrappy for the new term (which starts November 1st).  A few design team members are leaving while most are staying and we are also saying a big hello to a few new designers.

Our first change is to go to weekly challenges with a twist. They will be revealed each and every Thursday and will look like this:
  • color challenge + sketch
  • color challenge + "word"
  • color challenge + technique
  • color challenge + white, black or kraft BG
  • color challenge (for those months with 5 Thursdays)
Our prizes will still be awarded monthly. We will have a "Top 3" each and every month. This is voted on by our DT and the winners of this have the opportunity to come back as Guest Designers the following month.

We're all excited about the changes coming to CMS and we hope you are too!

Now it's time for Color Me Scrappy's 14th challenge, the last challenge of this term before all the new changes take place. Let's check out the colors!

beaded bright 
Love it! So bright and happy.

 And here is the layout I created for this challenge.The papers are from Studio Calico's "HeyDay" collection, American Crafts Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan" collection, and Pebbles' "Sunnyside" collection. The potty people are both Hero Arts stamps. I actually built up enough nerve to stamp on a layout and really love the outcome! Maybe this means I'll put my stamps to more use now. The heart stickers are from My Little Shoebox's "Happy Go Lucky" collection. The tag pulls out to reveal journaling (which is just a little private note to my hubby).
 The large heart was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo and the title is spelled out using DIY Fabric Thickers.
