A few weeks ago, I blogged that Pantone had announced that “Tangerine Tango” is the color for 2012 with this fabulous strapline of ” Dance into the New Year with this vivacious and appealing reddish orange”

So what better way to kick off our challenge and 2012 with this vibrant amazing color. WOOHOO!

On their announcement they say – “Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”

So lets energize ourselves ready for 2012!

Orange stirs up emotions, promotes creativity and is a very energizing color to kick off the new year. Below is a photo I took in Spain, one of my favorite places for creativity and inspiration to flow!
