I have the BLUES...would you like them?

This is my favorite color:

Believe it or not it was even my wedding color. I *adore* cobalt blue! When we started to plan out the Luxe Scavenger Hunt we all claimed our colors pretty quickly. I'm so glad I got to run the giveaway for blue! To win this fabulous set of blue Simply Luxe, just post a comment on this thread then keep your eyes peeled. You can enter to win Simply Blue until midnight Monday, April 21st. I'll name the winner here the morning of the 22nd.

Here's what I created with the Blue Simply Luxe...

I wanted to celebrate my favorite color. I enjoyed putting this book together SO MUCH I'm thinking of doing a few more color books. {red & black are already in the planning stages in my head}

GOOD LUCK & thank you for participating in the Luxe Scavenger Hunt!

Cobalt is my favorite blue too... Well, it's actually a tie between cobalt, persian, cubs' blue and ultramarine... I think I just love a bright blue!

I love your mini-album idea too! I've been trying to come up with a fun idea to showcase the 4 different shades of blue eyes my kids, Dh and I have and I think I may have to do some lifting of you book! :D
