Color Dare #120 - Barn Red, Goldrush, Olive, Glacier, Lagoon

Hi everybody, it's still fall, but I feel like winter is here to stay. It has been in the teens and low 20's for at least 2 weeks, and we have lots of snow that won't melt. But here at Color My Heart, we are rebelling against the weather! Let's keep celebrating fall with some gorgeous fall colors!

Barn Red
Goldrush
Olive
Glacier
Lagoon


These are the colors in our beautiful Pathfinding paper pack. Don't worry if you don't have the paper pack! Just use whatever you have in these colors (or very similar ones)!

ETA: Since this week is Thanksgiving here in America, we are giving you an extra week to play along! The link-up will close at 9PM central on Thursday, Dec. 4.

We have a guest designer this week: Lauren Moore! Check out this beautiful layout that she created for us:

Now here are some gorgeous projects from our talented Design Team:
