Color Dare #101 - Gypsy, Pear, Lagoon, & Sunset

Wow, you guys! I am blown away by how many entries we had into our 100th challenge! I will have fun looking through those this afternoon. Stay tuned this week to find out who our Grand Prize winner is. Also stay tuned, because we will be having a Design Team call soon.

For our 101st challenge, we have some very bright colors for you:

Gypsy
Lagoon
Sunset
Pear

You may recognize this combo from a paper pack we had a while back called Hooligans. This was meant to be a Halloween pack, but I want to see if you can make it look summery. Or you can get a head start on Halloween projects. However you want to do it, just have fun!

I created a layout with the Hooligans paper pack. I am not sure what pictures I will use on it yet, so I left off the title for now. But it will probably be something fun and funky in the upper left hand corner. You can read more about it on my blog:

Now check out the awesome creations from our Design Team (they are the greatest):
