My Delight

Palette 4 at The Color Room just went up and it has one of my favorite colors - orange! I immediately knew I wanted to use the gorgeous orange and browns from Crate Paper - Pink Plum.

I love this photo - it has a really natural feel to it and shows how big Em is getting.

Here's the palette - hope you get a chance to play along. :)

It's been a really long week for me personally. My grandpa passed away in the nursing home, we've spent a lot of time there and the funeral was yesterday. So sad for my dad. This was my last living grandparent and it's hard to imagine that part of your life gone. But I know he is at peace and we wanted that for him. Not to sound maudlin but it is just a part of life we all face.

Take care and I'll be back this weekend for a fun NSD challenge from Crate.
