CTD#290 - Thanks A Bunch!

Oh it's going to be a wonderful day folks!  I have three posts today so you better take some time and look around!!  LOL!!!   There's a Waltzingmouse new release, the 12 Kits of Occassions that I'm hosting as well as this post for The Color Throwdown.    This is my last week as guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge.  I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to shine in the spot light all month.  I had a great time and made some new friends.  Have you played there yet? You should check them out!!      I'm not the best at color challenges but I really got in the swing of things now that I've reached the end of the month.                                                                                                                                                                 
Here's the color swatch for this week.   My first thought when I saw this was RETRO - and those stacked baking dishes totally had me thinking Mom or something with the kitchen.  In the end I put the coral and banana next to each other and I saw some flowers with some Caribbean  accents.  This one came together really easy - and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  It seems so light and airy even with the dark black matted sentiment in the center.  

Need a little more inspiration to get you kick started?  Check out projects from the rest of the design team!

Now it's your turn!  I hope I see you at The Color Throwdown!
