Catered Crop–The Call It Mellow Yellow

For the current challenge at the Catered Crop, we are just mad about yellow!  That’s the current challenge, use the color yellow somewhere on your paper craft project.  

For my project, I mixed yellow with blue and kraft to make a sunshiny card for a friend.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
