Happy Anniversary

Hello Blog friends
It's my godsisters anniversary coming up.  Although her colors were purple & sage I went with  yellow and gray.  I went to Ace Appliance to pick up a paint brush for a swap and went by the color swatches.  I saw 'Happily ever after' as a color and that's were my inspiration came from. Of course I didn't just get one so the guy at check out said $10 for the swatches.  I looked at him and laughed.  I said, "So you know it's not for painting huh"?  He said, "Yes, you scrapbook right"? LOL  I said the secret is out!  They know me at Home Depot and now Ace.  That was the funniest moment and he said I made his day.

  10. I absolutely LOVE this, Princess. You are SO creative. That cracks me up that the guy actually called you out on getting the swatches. Too funny! He didn't really make you pay though, did he? The names of the paints fit the theme of your card so perfectly. You amaze me, dear!
    Have a blessed week and thanks so much for sharing in our challenge.

    1. No, he didn't make me pay for it. I took the altered paint brush before I mailed it and he said, "Unbelievable what else do you scrapbookers use in the store". lol

  11. Love it! Who knew crafting could happen with something from the hardware store.
