Good Evening and it's that time of the week again!!! I really can't believe how quick this week has already gone.
This was a very exciting week for me as my husband and I have decided to home school our three children. So I had a lot to do to get organized and that included unpacking 29kg worth of books from America. The week has been a blast and I think the children even enjoyed themselves, LOL.  Anyway on with the challenge.
The Colours  this week really tied in with a retired DSP paper called OUTLAW that has been collecting dust in my house since the new catty :) actually the whole range of papers is perfect for this challenge and it was hard deciding which paper to use, so I decided to paper tole out the girls dresses in a few of the different papers. 
I am loving this new Chocolate Chip Designer Button from the latte packet, tied with the new Chocolate Chip 1/4 grosgrain ribbon.
This SU, 'All in the Family' stamp set has the most gorgeous accessories to go with it, I have the new 'Family Accessories Too' stamps on my wish list. And don't forget to check out the other amazing design team member entries by going to Makeesha's blog
 here and give this challenge a go yourself..........
Have a great night,
Stamps             All in the Family, Family Favourites, Warm Words

Looks like we had the same idea! I have both the Outlaw DSP and the Round Up SS kit and I ended up choosing the second one. Great minds thinking alike, maybe?

I love the paper pieced clothes! :)

Have a great weekend!
