PDCC78 - romantic pinks and reds in time for THaT wedding!!!


For those of you who are regulars in the cafe, you will know that these are some of Julie's favourite colours - she's a real pinks and reds girl whereas I lean more towards the teals and blues, but I LoVe, LoVe, LoVe  this colour combo.


These are real Cath Kidston colours :) and bring back great childhood memories for me of blue/pink/red melanine cups with white spots.  They also look fantastic on the Union Jack, which I seem to remember seeing in this colourway in John Lewis but I may be wrong.  Perfect colours I feel for the upcoming Royal Event next week.  Are you celebrating?  I have a tea party and a bbq to go to, and turned down another invite as couldn't fit it in!!!


Apologies for the terrible images today.  I'll change them later when I can get hold of a camera (still no sign of my phone); these are scanned.  I used My Minds Eye papers to decorate a library folder thingamajig ...

...and I decorated the little card inside to match, adding a new Stampotique stamp I got from The Cubby Hole last weekend :)  I'm going to use this piece at the front of a wedding memories book for a friend who has just got engaged.  I'll write in their names and the date of their engagement.

Don't forget to visit the fantastic (and they really are!) projects from our DT and guest designer this week over aThe Play Date Cafe, or on their individual blogs ~ have fun creating, and don't forget to let me know what you're doing on the 29th April 2011!

Love this, Sarah! Enjoy your RW celebrations - I may go up to London but want to watch it on TV too, so that's going to be hard - I need a Tardis!
