Inspiring Colors!

So last week I sat down and did the color challenge over on the Crate Paper blog. I couldn't pass this one up, I just found it SO inspiring. And the colors were so out of the ordinary for me.

This was the color challenge:




See! Isn't it beautiful! And I knew just what pictures to use with this color scheme. :)

So here's my layout:


And the close up's:

*tip: the leftover part of stickers can be a fun addition to any project. See how under my border sticker, I used part of the leftovers. :)
*tip: don't have the color alphabet that you want to use? Paint them! That's what I did here, I used black foam letters and then painted them blue. :)

I splattered paint after the layout was complete simply because it looked like it needed a bit more of the blue on it.

And here I just stuck a few extra pieces of paper behind the one and curled them all over. Just trying something new. :)

I'm happy with how it turned out. Crate Paper already picked a winner for the challenge as well as some of their favorites, you can view those here.

Well I hope it stops raining here so I can get some outside work done, like mowing the lawn! It's rained all week. And I love the rain, but I am ready for it to stop. I still have a bunch of wood chips sitting in my driveway, waiting to be moved back to the new swing set. I'm ready for the sun.

Thanks for popping in today!

Have a wonderful day!
