Hello Friends:
Welcome to my first blog hop.  Please forgive me while I am still totally learning, but I thought I would just dive in and give it a try.  This week my Stampin Up Friends will be posting some amazing projects they have created from these amazing retiring colors.  Why are they retiring???  Well, every year Stampin Up comes up with an amazing set or fun colors called IN COLORS that stay around for 2 years and they rotate out every couple of years.  These colors are the 2014-2016 colors.  But if you would like these colors they will be available until May 31st so come and snag them before they run out.  Click the link below to see the colors and be sure to continue on to read about the project I have posted and the other amazing projects from my friends.

2014-2016 Retired In Colors

I guess I was in a retiring mood, as the project I chose for my first project comes from the retiring stamp set Flowering Flourishes and the punch for the flower comes from retiring Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Now the little Pearls I used for the center is still available and and perfect for any project!!!!

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and please be sure to stop by the other talented demonstrators listed below to see their projects.  If there is anything I can help you with on your projects please feel free to let me know and be sure to come back Wednesday for another project.
