Love to Create Challenge #3

Good Morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was too short, but it was good.  I leave this morning listening to my children softly snoring in their beds and they enjoy a day off.

Wow!  We had over 30 players for the second Love to Create challenge.  Thanks for joining us.  This week's challenge is sure to be a hit, too!  We have a color combination this week...
