Cute -- really like the coloring you used here. I've never thought about "coloring" one of the towels -- I'll have to keep that in mind! #2058782

Thanks, everyone! I, of course, got the towel idea from everyone here at, but decided to add the pink/peach towel. I thought it offset her dress nicely. #2062424
