National Crayon Day!

Hi friends!  
You may remember that last year, I started fun facts posts on my blog :)
It's always fun to seek out what
 obscure holidays there were and what fun (unusual!) events 
people like to observe and celebrate.   Well ...

Color.  Me.  Happy!
Today is National Crayon Day!
I am no spring chicken 29 again (a-hem!) and still love to color with crayons!
There's something absolutely joyous about opening that brand new box 
of crayons, and not even gonna fib, I love the smell!
 Crayola brand is STILL my very favorite ♥
 Now, as an adult, I still buy them during school clearances
 or back to school sales because, yes!
I still color with crayons! 
And my daughter is a teacher - there's ALWAYS a need.

Here are some fun Crayon Facts!

  • The smell of crayons is the 18th most recognizable scent for adults in the U.S.
  • Crayola makes 3 billion crayons a year
  • The favorite crayon color of most Americans is blue
  • The 100-billionth crayon was made by Fred Rogers of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood in 1996.
  • In 1962, Crayola changed the name of the color “flesh” to “peach”

I've had this little Lawn Fawn crayon stamp/die set for a little while now,
and I bought it late last year just to use for National Crayon Day.
I adore it!
I have been using my distress oxides lately for backgrounds,
 so I used one of those for the colorful backdrop for the crayons.
I colored, die cut them in varied colors
and a couple of them are popped up on 3d foam for added dimension.

So what is your favorite crayola color - 
do you have one?

Mine is granny smith apple!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing you a colorful start to your day ♥

Big hugs, bigger blessings!

  7. Oh Kelly what a fun card - love your colours in that vibrant background - did you colour the crayons with crayon?? ;-)

    1. Hello Miss Maxine! I actually water-colored
      Them with ZIG clean color real brush markers and water. I stamped
      Them onto watercolor paper for the 'piling' to resemble paper :)

  8. How cute! love the vibrant colors! I spent a lot of my childhood coloring with crayons. I still make sure I keep coloring books and crayons on hand for when I do baby sitting for some of nieces and nephews! My favorite crayon color would be some shade of PINK!

  11. I don't think this card could be any cuter! Just adorable and so much fun. I would have to say my favorite Crayola color is purple.
