An Update and a Creative Color Challenge

Well I did not fall into a hole somewhere, just have been enjoying working in my yard and being with the family. Have been doing lots of interviewing at some really great, and a few not so great, companies! You always have to weed out a few right? But its funny and makes me laugh all the way back home after a really bad interview. Supposed to hear back from my top picks by the end of next week. SO EXCITED-Then I will be able to give a good update. Hopefully packed with fantastic news. Hope everyone is doing well.

I decided to do another color challenge because I loved seing all of the amazing ideas from the last time. So let's do it again. This color combo comes right from the cover of Malorie's Journal (and no I did not read inside- just looking at the outside- but who is this kid Cooper whose name is in hearts! kidding.) So hear it is:

Pretty in Pink
Rose Red
Regal Rose
Chocolate Chip
Kiwi Kiss

I like throwing in a color there that you may not normally put together. Now go enjoy creating someting. Like last time- post it on your own blog and then reply here with the link. That way we can all copy, I mean admire your work. Ha
Feeling very blessed today-Your friend,
Jaron

Hi Jaron, well it looks like you are having fun looking for your NEW job, or at least fun with the extra time to garden. I know next to making cards I love my gardening best! Here is a little something I used to submit to your color challenge. I used Pink Pirouette instead of Pretty in Pink becasue I just love that ribbon so! Have a nice weekend

Hi Jaron -

Well, I can't even tell you how I ran across your blog (typical web surfer), but I have enjoyed reading your posts.

Not sure if you got an offer yet or are still in the interviewing process - if you are still interviewing and want to send me your address I'd be happy to send you one of our FiredUP Interviewing audio CD's - compliments.

Good luck!

Here's what your really pretty color combo inspired me:

Can't wait to hear more about your top picks. In the meantime, keep enjoying that garden. I'm off to Home Depot this afternoon to get flowers for mine. I pulled out all the dead stuff and a bunch of weeds and now there's nothing left LOL.

I was out of town so I came across this post a bit late! (Better late than never, right?)

Loved this color combo . . . I was worried I wasn't going to be able to fit 'em all in, but I did it! We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for ya that one of the jobs you are excited about comes through for you!

Here's a link to my challenge card:

Jaron,
Thanks for another great Creative Color Challenge. I was finally able to play along. This time I didn't have such a sad reason for creating my card, and I was able to play around and have fun with it. Here's my card.

I wish you continued luck with your job search. Be sure to keep us informed. Take care, and God bless!

HUGS!
Kelly
