Color Palette #5: Blush & Bashful Popcorn

If you haven't seen the movie, Steel Magnolias, than the name for this color palette will definitely not have the same effect as it does on me. 

Truvy: What are your colors, Shelby? 
Shelby: My colors are "blush" and "bashful." 
M'Lynn: Her colors are "pink" and pink." 
Shelby: My colors are "blush" and "bashful" Mama! 
M'Lynn: How precious is this weddin' gonna get, I ask you? 

Pink and Pink!  I probably would have said the same back in 1989. I wasn't a fan of pink. Not until I reached 30 did I find my sweet love of pink. And now, as I type this, my office is bursting with Blush and Bashful, on the walls, on my desk, on the windows.  

When I saw the photo in today's color palette over on The Crafting Chicks, I knew immediately that I wanted pink popcorn and I also wanted to use this photo to create a color palette.  I'm very thankful that The Crafting Chicks gave me permission to do so. 

Pink! Popcorn!  Will wonders never cease?

(For the Steel Magnolia fans, I do realize that these pinks are not the same as Shelby's Blush and Bashful, but the lovely play of pinks here made me think of them)

And now, let's make some popcorn!
