The Gossip Column - Colour Crushes & News at CASology

There's a new look for the challenge over at Winnie & Walter.  Taheerah has wowed us with a fabulous challenge - you know how I'm challenged with color, right?  Check this out:

 Now while every color given is gorgeous, and the inspiration photos were fabulous... here is where they took me...

I've chosen Lucite Green, Scuba blue, and Tangerine Orange from the palette for the tree frogs...
and Glacier Grey for the Winnie & Walter's "celebrate"  from The Big, Bold, and Extras set I won!!
It's a boy is from INKADINKA DOO embossed in Hero Arts White.

You may ask "why" tree toads?  Well here is the View from The Two Acre Woods this week - specifically the pond:

frogs eggs! 
 
Not only will I be sharing this on the Winnie & Walter challenge, I'm sending it over to CASology to celebrate the NEWS of Gillian's darling new little boy!! 

Ah, Spring - baby frogs, baby boys... and soon we'll be having baby ducks, as well!

I KNEW you'd do something awesome with this challenge and *smiling smugly*, how correct I am! You've nailed the colours, delighted with the images, dazzled with the repeat sentiments and just plain old captured the excitement of a 'new' baby bow perfectly. Froggy-fantasic! I'm calling winner, winner on this! Your photo of the frog eggs from your Two Acre Woods: spectacular! You live in a paradise!
