I am soooooooooo SAD

that my time as a 
has come to an end
this week is my last Layout for February
It has been a blast and I have loved every minute .
the girls have made me very welcome, big hugz to everybody.
below is my last RDA Layout .... Palette #99

I loved this palette, but when I saw the ' caramel' I thought where am I going to add that ???
so I decided to add two caramel  brads .. problem solved !!!!

I find designing a page to a color palette is so fabulous for evolving my creativity
'pushing the boundries..'.

thanks for all the inspiration Lydell and for having me on The color Room xoxo

so pleased you dropped by and thanks for taking the time to leave me some feed back 
you make my day 
love and hugz Heather x

I spend a great deal of time in my kitchen ..
We had our kitchen re-modelled 6 years ago and I adore it .
so easy to work in and clean
with stone benches and splashbacks.
I waited a long time for this kitchen and it was worth it !!!!
I thought I would share some shots with you.
