Happy Monday all! Can you believe it's the last Monday in July? This summer has, sadly, flown by here. In fact, we bought Abie's school supplies over the weekend...tear. Enough about that though. I want to talk about my new favorite color today. It's a a light aqua or robin's egg blue. I fell in love with in a few weeks ago and I just can't stop thinking about it.
I would LOVE to paint our kitchen that color, but I think it might be a bit much. Plus it would take a massive amount of effort on my part to Mike on board with it and I would rather use my energy for other, more crafty things at the moment ;) Like the card I made, totally inspired by this color!
Now those labels are really cool. I found them at Michael's on clearance for $1.49 and there were 12 in the package! I'm thinking I might need some more, you know after using one realizing how much I loved it! As for the sentiment, I heat embossed it with my favorite bright red Zing embossing powder on some old book paper. Loving how that turned out too! I was slightly afraid that the heat gun was going to catch that old paper on fire though. Although I'm sure it wouldn't have been the first time Shakespeare was burned. Haha. I love the red and yellow paired up with this beautiful blue color. I'm not sure there's any color that would look bad against this as it's backdrop. What do you think?
Did you all have a nice weekend? It was so HOT here on Saturday. We cleaned the house up and then did some shopping, swam and then had a picnic/movie night. On Sunday it was laundry and crafting. Perfect!
I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for coming by today. See you tomorrow!
