MDSM29, CQC #204

Good morning!  Happy Labour Day to you all!  And I DO have my work cut out for me today, so I'll get right to it!

I had a chance to play along again at the Colour Q and I also used the awesome sketch from the MDS Monday challenge blog.

         

Don't you just love the colour combo?  It's so bright and fun and cheery!  I do have to admit that I DID find it hard to find the right balance of colours though!  And... maybe it's still not right!  But it worked perfectly, in my opinion, with the pictures of my fun middle daughter!   And when I paired it up with MDSM's great sketch, it all came together pretty nicely, if I do say so myself!  Oh, and an added challenge from MDS Monday was to use frames!  Any frames, of course!  But for me... it was the ones from Downtown Grunge. (is there any other?)  Although in my defense I tried my very hardest to use the Fancy Frames download, but I just couldn't make it work!  There's always next time though!

Here you are!


Pretty colourful, huh?  I think it looks like one big party!  

Let me know what you think!  I love hearing your comments, and I read and appreciate each and every one of them!  

Well, off to pick up my school bus, dust the cobwebs out, and give it a little wash in preparation for the big day tomorrow!  Today was my last day for sleeping in and tomorrow the alarm clock gets moved back to my side of the bed!  Wish me luck!
