Just Add Ink #347 - Just Add a Colour Combo

Happy Friday ~

It's been an odd kind of week for me.  I had a fraxel treatment on my face on Monday (trying to undo all that tanning of the 70's & 80's) and I haven't been able to leave the house since.  Initially I was bright red, swollen and sore, then I went dark brown and had chipmunk cheeks, then a day later I got even darker and very tight, crusty and dry, and finally yesterday I started to peel and flake.  I'm looking quite mottled at the moment.  The kids have all had something to say - you need to wear a burka, mum wash the dirt off your face, why is your face black?  The end is in sight and by tomorrow all the peeling should be finished and my face will be fresh and pink.  Apparently the best results are seen a few months down the track.  I can tell you that where the skin has already peeled the new/underneath skin is sooooo soft and lovely to touch.  I bet you just love popping by to hear what's been happening for the past week/fortnight in my life lol.  Anyway onto the crafty stuff.

Kim gave us a colour combo to work with over at Just Add Ink this week - Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum and Rose Red.  All lovely colours but I had a bit of a hard time with them.

I used the Swirly Bird stamps and dies to create these little floral clusters.  I haven't used this set nearly enough, and yet I see so many gorgeous and creative uses of it.

We'd love you to join our fun colour challenge this week so pop over to JAI to check out the design team inspiration then get busy in your own craft space.  Don't forget to link up so we can visit your blog.

Next week the twins turn 5.  As we're heading off to Fiji soon after we've decided to skip the big party this year, but they are having a few friends to play at our local adventure park and will share some nibbles and cake.  I have only invited friends from four families and between us there are 15 kids lol - mostly multiples like us.

Have a fabulous weekend!
