I have some from Martha Stewart Crafts. It came it a set of I think 4 colors. But it is not aqua and white, it is just aqua. I got it at M's a few years ago, so I don't know if it is still available. I've used it on most of my layouts in my gallery. It is tied around the wood veener flower pot in the layout I uploaded last. Also you can pot over to my blog...it is the layout on my latest post and there is a detail of the flower pot. You can see if it is the color you are looking for.

I really dont know the difference btw. aqua and turquise, even after googling it! You might like MME All is Bright twine set, check out their aqua. May be on sale here at 75% off, so worth the chance!

check out The Twinery; I ordered a sampler bunch from them and they have all the colors online, I think Caribbean may be what you want.

Hope this helps

I'm another who doesn't really know the difference between aqua and turquoise (and teal?).

I have a Jillibean twine pack though, with a white and aqua color that looks similar to what Artfulscrapbooking posted. It's a 2-pack, and the other color is green and white. It's a couple of years old though, so not sure how available that would be.

Doodlebug has an aqua + white twine.

(For those who said they didn't know the difference: To me, turquoise is a slightly greenish blue - think of the turquoise jewelry you see a lot in the Southwest. Teal is a much more greenish blue - like the color in the old Florida Marlins logo, if you look it up. Aqua, for me is a brighter blue color - kind of like the color that gets called "electric blue" sometimes.)

I would suggest the Twinery too! Carribean is a terrific colour and matches lots of lines. I have used my sampler up several times over!

found some from the paperfairy on etsy..it was more than I wanted to pay so from the photo looks like the right color,,crossing fingers!!

Thanks for the information..btw I thought the aqua had just a bit more of a greenish pastel look to it. very much like our color showing our pea name..linda

I think that Divine Twine Aqua is closer to what you are looking for, not quite as green as the Carribean. If what you ordered isn't what you are looking for let me know. I have twine posted on FSOT.
