FF#71...calm, serene, AQUAMARINE!

Before we get to today's post...Tanisha and I would like to extend our heartfelt prayers and thoughts to the people of Japan.  We can only hope that there are brighter days ahead for your country. 

Now, I have to tell  you how wonderful it was to look at all of the lovely St. Patrick's Day projects you have shared with us over this past week.  So many fabulous entries!  This week's top 3 are:

Fantastic entries from all three!  Please feel free to grab our Top 3 badge from the sidebar!

and our Shoe of the Week for FF#70 goes to:

Gorgeous, vintage fabulous!  Carol, your card is stunning!  Please feel free to grab our Shoe of the Week badge from the sidebar!

and now on to this week's Fashionista Friday challenge!  Continuing with our birthstone theme of 2011...the Birthstone for the month of March is Aquamarine!  A little bit more about this gemstone (image and text from Frederico's Design Jewelers):

"The blue of Aquamarine is divine and eternal, that of the light blue sky and of the deep blue ocean. This, no doubt, is why its name is derived from the Latin for water (aqua) and for sea (mare).  Legend states that sailors have long regarded it as their lucky stone, believing it would prevent seasickness, ensure a sound voyage, and guarantee a safe return."

Learn something new everyday!  Our challenge to you this week is to find inspiration in the color


Here are some fab samples from our sweet DT to get you started:

and you go!  Very excited to see how the color Aquamarine inspires you!  Share your fab creations (new as of the date of this post) with us using the link below.  Please include a direct link to your project so that it is easier for us to leave comments.  If you are posting to an online gallery, please use the tag FF#71.  Can't wait to see your art!
