A ColourQ challenge and a lesson in patience

I'm trying to do anything and everything to keep my mind off the fact that baby hasn't arrived.

So, after folding laundry, a game of Chinese crib, and an elaborately prepared lunch, and 7 written thank-you cards, I decided to participate in a challenge :)

I followed the ColourQ challenge this week: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry and White.

Their inspirational image, as always, was gorgeous. I sometimes find that using all the colours is difficult - especially when you're staring at an object that has done it so effortlessly!

Anywho, here is my take on the palette!

Hoping everyone out there is enjoying the last few days of summer! It's certainly feeling like fall around here. It feels like just yesterday I went to the library with my little kiddo and got a book about making apple cider...
