Slow Down!

It’s the start of a brand new cue word challenge over at CASology and this week, we’re asking you to RELAX a bit!

I immediately thought of curling up in an overstuffed chair and reading a good book, something that is rare for me these days while chasing three boys around!

Stamps:  Paper Trey

I popped up the patterned chair with foam dots to give things some dimension and then added just a tiny bit of yellow Stickles to the center of the cushion.  I’ve been playing around with colors I’m seeing online and in stores and this combination of yellow and turquoise has me smiling!

Be sure and take a look at what the rest of the design team has created as well as our guest designer, Karen:

Have a terrific Tuesday!
