Totally Hues Challenge #2

Hi, everyone... Happy Friday! :) School is closed today and temps are supposed to be around 70 degrees (WOOOT!), so we're taking an impromptu trip to the zoo.  Lindsay doesn't know that we're going to the zoo or that her grandparents are coming up for the day, so she's going to freak out when they show up.  I can hardly wait to see the expression on her face! :)

Today is also the 3rd Friday of the month, which means it's time for a new Totally Hues Challenge. Yay! Before we get to this week's colors, I wanted to take a moment and post the cards making up the top 5 for challenge #1! I had the most amazing time going through all the entries you guys submitted for the challenge... They were AWESOME! The smile on my face was huge as I looked at each posted card, and by the end I was downright giddy! Every single entry was fantastic and I had *the* hardest time narrowing down my favorites.  LOL, it was darn near impossible I tell ya! Without further ado, here's the Totally Hues Challenge #1 top 5:

Because I read you via Google Reader I do not often go directly to your site. So I don't think I've commented except by clicking "Like" a jillion times. So today I'm telling you I love your work. Your style consistently pleases me, I love your use of Papertrey Ink products and yours is one of my must-see blogs. Thanks so much for sharing your talent! xox
