Summer of COLOR- Week One!

Last Summer, many of my favorite blogs participated in The Summer of Color- created and hosted by Kristin of Twinkle Twinkle.  There were so many beautiful pieces inspired by this event that I really, really wanted to be part of it.  But last Summer was a really bad one for me with lots health problems and such-and I just knew I couldn't add one more thing to my plate.  However, this Summer I am ready and set to go!  The first challenge was Rainbow Sherbert and I decided to take inspiration from this for a spread for The Sisterhood of Traveling Sketchbooks.  We are running really behind and I've decided to try to do my last entries while I'm waiting for the books to come my way.  Anyway, rambling aside; here is my entry-
I'll be adding the quote: " If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies." but I need to wait til I get the book because the page sizes vary from from one book to the next.
So, Happy Monday all- do try to get over to Twinkle Twinkle to see what everyone else came up with for the challenge!

I watched as others joined last year, too. I may actually try to play along this year. Of course, I have nothing to make after I design the papers. Yours are superb and it's smart of you to plan ahead. That's how a RR catches up!
