Retro-Fresh is goin' for the GOLD...

...and we're not just talking about the Olympics, folks!  ;)

Hey everyone!  I can't even tell you how excited I was to see the Showcase DT's cards rolling in for this month's "RETRO-Fresh" challenge! We have some SUPER retro stamps being used and I'm really happy to see some old, familiar TGF characters today!

Before we begin, congrats to NIKKI!  You are the winner of last month's "Stars and Stripes" challenge!  Please email Jess to claim your prize and thanks to our lucky 13 players!   We would LOVE to see more people participate in our RETRO-fresh challenge and remember you guys have ALL month long to play!  Now that we are winding summer down, don't forget to enter this month for a chance to win a BIG prize!

That leads me to our challenge today... "The Golden Hour".   With Fall right around the corner, some of my favorite natural scenes are in the making with the trees, skies, and general surroundings turning all sorts of pretty shades.    There's nothing like a crisp BLUE sky with oranges and yellows in the trees at sunset... or really the hour before, which lots of photographers refer to as "the Golden Hour" have a great color combo for you today!


Here are some golden-delicious samples from the DT:
