You Capture - Vibrance

Beth over at I Should be Folding Laundry had another fun photography challenge this week. The prompt was Vibrance which has a couple of different meanings but I went with "relatively high on the scale of brightness" for my shots this week. I felt like a kid in a candy store this week with playing around with all of the colorful and VIBRANT items I found in the house. It makes me crave spring weather even more.

 Playing around with some very colorful Solo cups.
I can't wait to fill them up with margaritas this summer!
 Stacks and stacks of these vibrant colored cups.
 I had lots of fun stacking them and building very tall towers.
My husband walked by and was trying to figure out what in the world I was doing and then he guessed...
a photography challenge?
Yup!
 And the I snapped a few pictures of my favorite colorful buttons and brads.
Real Red
Kiwi Kiss
Pacific Coast Blue
Pumpkin Pie

 These buttons put a BIG smile on my face.
They are so cheerful and I love putting them on my cards that I make in hopes of making someone else smile.

Great photos! I love the Solo cups shots! And, yes, it's a turning point in your marriage when your husband guesses that you're standing on a chair in the kitchen to photograph food so you can put it on your blog...oh, wait! That was me! LOL

Perfect captures!

Very creative! We have colorful cups in our house too, but unlike yours ours get filled with chocolate milk and juice :-)
