Kathy Racoosin is the most amazing, kind and generous woman and I am so honoured to call her my friend. Kathy is the creator of the hugely popular Coloring Challenge, having run eight 30 day challenges and she’s now taking the colouring challenge on the road for “The Coloring Challenge Road Trip”. You can find out all the details on Kathy’s blog, The Daily Marker, including details of the first few stops on the trip and how you can sign up.

Now, for me in particular, here’s the exciting bit as Kathy is starting her road trip in the UK!! Not only that, but the historic city of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland and my closest big city! I’m delighted and honoured to be joining Kathy for the Edinburgh Coloring Challenge in the stunning location of the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.

So today I am calling out to all my UK and European friends to give Kathy a big welcome as she flies over the pond to kick-start the Colouring Challenge Road Trip! If you fancy joining Kathy and me for a day filled with colouring in the most amazingly beautiful location with the Royal Botanic Gardens as your colouring inspiration then you can find the details below. I’ve even popped the little paypal button from Kathy at the bottom there.

“The idea is meet with fellow colorists or crafters that enjoy coloring and to want to relax, color and pick up a few tips. Whether you into making cards, coloring, stamping in your journal or planner, scrapbooking or even coloring in a coloring book this is for you. There will be demos & giveaways too!!”
