Color Combo Challenge #82

July 28, 2008

Janet asked me to be the guest designer for this week at the Color Combos Galore blog! I loved pulling out all of my papers that matched these colors and then picking and choosing what I wanted to use! I made it a challenge to myself to not use just one mfgr...and ended up using 2! Better than nothing, I guess! :)

This is the color combo I chose from the 4 that Janet gave me:

And this is the layout that I came up with! I can't believe that I used a colored not normal for me. But, it really seemed to fit the layout this time around. (Click on the layout to see it better...much more detail that way!)
Supply List:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Paper: KI Memories & Hambly
Chipboard: American Crafts & Rusty Pickle

I am also glad I thought of these photos while deciding what I was going to scrap. We took this Disney World trip in October of 2006, when we still had our point and shoot digi camera. Well, right after we got back, Josh surprised me with my DSLR for Casey's last football game. I can admit that it is hard to go back and scrap the photos from my P&S camera, because it takes a bit of editing time to get them to look how I want. (I have been spoiled with my DSLR...editing is a cinch.) Well, this is layout #6 in the Disney album. I have a LONG way to go...but am now inspired to get going on them!
Do you want to know one of my quirks? I love cheeseball pop music, and one of my latest fave songs is by Jesse McCartney called "Leavin". I find myself putting it on repeat on my computer when listening to it. It has a catchy melody...I find myself dancing at my scrappy desk whenever it comes on. The only way I can think to let you hear it is to add the official video off of YouTube. I will warn you now that the video is a little suggestive and just be aware. Don't play it if you don't want to see that! Here it is:

Hope your Monday is going by with ease,
