ScrapHappy Saturday - Pink Roses for Hope

Today is the last pink Saturday, though there are still 6 pink days left in the month.
So here is a bit of pink trivia to start wrapping things up


  • First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who loved and wore pink so much it became known as “Mamie Pink”.
  • Pink encourages friendliness while discouraging aggression and ill-will.
  • Since the color pink is said to have a tranquilizing effect, sport's teams sometimes use pink to paint the locker room used by opposing teams.
  • In 1947, fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli introduced the color "hot pink" to western fashion. She dubbed the shade "Shocking Pink," though today the color is more well-known as "magenta."
  • Pastries taste better when they come out of pink boxes or served on pink plates (it only works with sweets). Pink makes us crave sugar.



 I am running out of pink scraps, but putting the last bits to use in these pink framed geese that I am desperate to finish for Hawaii Sunset.  How about you?  Still sorting through the last bits of pink?  Ready to share your pink projects for the month?  Use the Linky below to link to your post full of pink.

    Anyone who can make that many flying geese blocks has my admiration!

    I'd like to see a pink locker room! Your flying geese are so bright and fun. No progress on my scrappy project for 2013, guess I need to get going on that.

    Such pretty geese! I fear I have more pink lurking around in the scrap bin. Maybe some more crumbs will get made this week. I'm starting to wonder what color we get to play with next month....

    I still have a lot of pink scraps to use another time, though I think I will try do something with them in the next few days before they are put back on the shelf :) Love your flying geese with pink skies!

    Paper piecing sounds like a great way to make Flying Geese. I will definitely have to try it.
    I can't wait to find out what next month's color will be.
