Dueling Darlings - September

While the duel has passed, I am chiming in tardy with my September Dueling Darlings card for SCS.  What a fun kit that Kadie sent to us.   I loved all of the colors to work with.  Thank you, Kadie.

Our theme was Globetrotting and Getting Down to Your Roots.   Kraftin' Kimmie, Melanie of Canada was the image I used.  I decided to get my 'eh on!

We were asked to share our heritage with this challenge.  Mine is actually quite simple.  A quarter each of Irish, Norwegian, German and Russian.  Ireland married Norway and Germany married Russia and each was one hundred percent.  My dad is Irish and Norwegian.  My mom is German and Russian.  Before family dinners my grandma would say the Lord's Prayer in Norwegian, the only time she spoke it.  Fun fact....every person in my entire family, both sides, as far back as documented, all have blue eyes.

Please take some time if you have not already and visit the other Dueling Darlings to see what they created with their kits.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Have a great week!

Ooooooh...Ahhhhhhh. I love brown, most fav color ever. And this shade has to be the best brown ever!! Ditto Barb & Jeanette's comments - it's rich, deep and perfect to accent the softer colors you've paired with it. Of course Melanie is perfectly colored and accented. Love the tag! You rocked this one!
