Chocolate and Vanilla...



Hi everyone! You're probably wondering about the title...I couldn't resist putting in this picture of my oldest DS and youngest DS first. Look at how different their complexions are! See my 'chocolate' on the left and my 'vanilla' on the right? Haha! Kalil is spending time outdoors playing baseball and hitting the basketball courts, he's also naturally darker like his #3 and #5 sisters. Izzy, on the otherhand, is fair like his #2 and #4 siblings. They all love love love each other which is all that matters to me. And by the way, I happen to love chocolate/vanilla swirl. ;) heehee!


Okay, but on to the real reason for the title...
The Digi Shack is having a color combo challenge this week!

Chocolate Chip (dark brown)
White/Vanilla
Not Quite Navy
Kraft (or chipboard)

Using the aforementioned colors, create a card/project with any digi from the shoppe HERE. There's some reallly great ones out for Father's Day cards so check them out!
Okay, so here's what I did with those colors using one of the newest releases:



Lani is sassy, isn't she? I was so happy to try out this color combo as I would have never thought of it myself. This DP that I {heart} (and hoarded) is from SU's Urban Garden DP pack. I was so happy when I remembered that nqnavy was one of the colors. I wanted an off centered scalloped circle just for artistic purposes, so I punched it out of kraft cardstock and perched her on it. Those big old primas just called out to me and guess what? There's not even a mistake under it. haha! And see that sentiment? I meant this to be a card for someone special, but it kind of sounds like Lani and her alcoholic beverage are happy together. LOL! I guess that works too, right? It's 5:00 somewhere! Now go and see what other gorgeous cards the DT made, all their links are in my sidebar and you won't be disappointed. :D

Along with this contest, there's also another challenge that you can read about HERE using any of the Lani wahines (girls). And the winner of that judged contest will receive ALL of TDS' images. All of them!! Toni is also scouring blog world for a June Guest Designer. It could be you! Alrighty, get to creating and make me proud. ;) Have a wonderful Thursday and come on back tomorrow. A hui hou!
*Love and Aloha*
