 I think I've just created one of my most favourite LO's - I had a blast with this one.  It's for the challenge over at Scrapbookit - hosted by Chantal and you need to use RED - YELLOW - BLUE.
I started off my LO with a paint palette of the three colours and used some fancy edge paint scrappers to create the textured background - heaps of fun.
I've used Sassafrass, Hambly, Echo Park & Jenni Bowlin products.
Here are some close-up's:

 ... Sassafrass flower foldies - hand-made crochet flowers - hand-made stamped tag with button ...
 ... Jenni Bowlin sticker letters - Hambly transparency ...
 ... chipboard cloud painted white - yellow doily - stamped balloon - felt flower ...
... here's a close -up of the painted BG - I found these 'fancy edge paint scrappers' at my local discount store...

So that's my take on this challenge - hope you've enjoyed taking a look.  School holidays are keeping us busy - plenty of camping and catching up with family - and that means lots of great photo opportunities.  Plenty of scrap booking coming up I think!!

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!

Chantelle - I LOVE this!!! Wow!!!

I am so thrilled that you played along! Thank you so much!!! It was such a lovely suprise to see your comment on my blog! Yay!

I am nuts about this - the paintwork is out of this world awesome!!! You have really done an amazing job! I'd love to try this and I think I will - but it may never see the light of day because I'd probably stuff it up! I love how the colours haven't blended you know like the red and blue haven't gone brownish and the yellow and blue haven't gone greenish. Gosh this is fab! Love everything about this! Thanks so much!!! :D

Good luck! :D
