CPT ~ Color Inspiration Challenge!

Good Sunday morning! I am over the moon excited to be sharing my first challenge project for The Creative Paper Trade Color Inspiration Challenge!  Isn't this inspiration photo fun. When I first saw it I thought of Leave it to Beaver! I wasn't around yet, but didn't they have pink refrigerators back then!



I can just picture June Clever in her dress, heels and pearls whipping up something for Wally and the Beaver in this kitchen!


The kitchen is the heart of the home don't you think. So I set out to make a wall hanging to represent home. Several items from the shop were used to create this project. The pretty little rows of heart paper were die cut with my Impression Obsession house die. I love the sentiment on this square digi ~ something to live by. Sweet felt flowers and a pennant bring in some warmth. A tribute to June's pearls was a must! I think this frilly doily anchors everything in place quite nicely. And perhaps June had a frilly lace hankie like this tucked in her pocket or sleeve.

My mom didn't wear heels and pearls in the kitchen, nor do I. But we both made it the heart of our homes and still do. There's nothing quite like smelling something yummy cooking on the stove or sweetness baking in the oven. I do love our home!

Here's the prize for this week  (cute huh!) and a chart to show you  the schedule of events!



I do hope you'll take a moment to stop by and check things out, then play along! Have a blessed day friends and thanks for stopping by ~Lisa
