What do elves, a frog, and kitchen have in common?

The Make it Colourful Challenge is what elves, a frog and kitchen have in common! This week is all about the kids and the challenge is for them to color something pink. Here are two of my daughters showing their stuff and bringing you two fabulous design team projects!

Lydia's project features a pink frog (from "Pond A Lily)" and the "Christmas Elves" from Make it Crafty. She went all out with the punches and went for a dramatic look with the black background. (Age 4)

Cassandra wanted to try something a little more grand and challenged herself to coloring the Kitchen set (also from Make it Crafty). I thought she did a fabulous job and was even impressed with the placement. She had fund picking out the "right" ribbon and is very proud of her project. (Age 7).

This challenge is for the kids and I hope they all have just as much fun as mine did! Make sure to submit your projects into the collection before next Friday in the kid's challenge at Make it Colourful. Have a great weekend!


  1. Wow Lydia. You are such a clever monkey, just like the elves on your card! *giggles* I love your choice in images and you did such a fabulous job in colouring in that pink frog! But secretly, my favourite part is all the holes you punched. Very creative indeed!

    And Cassandra!
    You are brimming with talent, just like mum! You coloured the kitchen so beautifully and you even coloured the appliances in stainless steel! I can just imagine myself cooking in your kitchen. :)

    Maybe some cookies?

    hugs xxoo

  2. LYDIA! you fussycutter! i love it! the punches are just so much fun and they make a great border! you did such a wonderful job with your card, and the paper you chose to go behind the elves is so pretty!

    Cassandra, sweetheart, you put so much detail into your colouring and it turned out fantastic! i absolutely love those pink bar stools and want some in MY kitchen!

    thank you, girls, for sharing your projects with us!

  3. Oh wow girls I was soo impressed with these fantastic cards I had to pinch them and show them off on my blog too, I hope you dont mind.

    the kitchen is incredible and definetely the perfect ribbon to go with it and Lydia way to go with the punches I just love that pink frog on that black background.

    Hope we get to see lots more of your work.

  4. Wow Lydia, your card is sooo unique, I love what you did with the border punches and I certainly prefer a pink frog to a green one. Gorgeous hun.
