Color Play Friday 80's Skate Party 4.29.16

Happy Friday Everyone!  We've had a crazy week getting ready for our one year anniversary for the store.  The time has gone by so fast and it's hard to believe how far we have come since I first started this adventure.  My family, friends and co-workers have all been amazing and supportive through this entire year. I couldn't have done it without them.

This picture definitely takes me back to the 80's when I was a kid and at a school skate party.  I broke my arm while there with my best friend who is still my bestie to this date.  Can't say it's the best memory and my kids still don't understand why I wouldn't be excited to put skates on.

I took the challenge of this picture by storm this week and went a little crazy with the aqua/teal and mixing it with the deeper reds and greens.  Surprisingly it worked for me.  Some of you might think I'm crazy and you're right!  I just love how playing with these pictures color palettes and fabric really make me see beyond my normal color scales that I have used for years.  Ask me to put aqua and red together and you'd get a funny look from me but now I really want to try it.

I hope you enjoy my crazy selection as much as I do!

Fabric Selection:
Flow by Zen Chic for Moda
Gigi's Blooms by AdornIt
La Vie Boheme by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake
Chipper by Tula Pink for Westminster/Free Spirit
Wonderland by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery
