Calypso with Heart 2 Heart

This weeks' challenge at Heart 2 Heart is Calypso, which is one of the newest paper packages in the Seasonal Expressions 2.  Calypso is also a style of Afro-Caribbean music that can get you moving and feeling the island vibe, and Calypso, was a sea-goddess nymph from Greek Mythology, the daughter of Atlas, who ruled the seas!!!  Pretty cool...

Check out the artwork from the talented design team.
Melissa Robinson





We would love to see your artwork too and LOVE when you play play along.

Are you ready to get moving to the Calypso beat?  Add your project to the link below.
