Beautiful Sunshine Day | A Scrapbook Layout

Today I have a quick layout to share. I have been very productive this week, participating in some challenges over on Shimelle.com for the online crop last weekend.

I created this layout for Challenge #4 – Color Adventure. The challenge was to scrapbook using yellow and grey plus one other color. Because of the photos, I selected green.

Yellow and green are a combination I usually avoid. My high school colors were green and gold and I have always, always stayed away from using the two together. While I have very fond memories of my teenage years, I don’t really have fond memories of my high school because my closest friends went to other schools. But I have to admit, even with my aversion to the color combo, I am very pleased with how this turned out.

I think it’s the happy grey polka-dot background that makes it OK. Or it could be the fact that I was able to use up some older products too. One of the benefits I was hoping would occur from my big move was that I planned and packed specific products so that I would use up some older stash. It’s working!

Other: AC Eric chipboard thickers, AC pearl brads, yellow Prima flower, Recollections bling, asst ribbon.


Do you have any fun plans for the upcoming weekend? It is supposed to rain here in Florida but we need it desperately, so the rain would be a blessing.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. This is lovely Tammy. Of course, I’m a little partial to anything with yellow in it! LOL I think we’re getting a little rain this weekend, too. We’re planning a stop at the monthly antique market, but mostly just relaxing.

  2. That is a great color combo and a beautiful page! I thought I was the only one who avoids certain color combinations, mine is blue and yellow.

  8. Love the colors … the green looks great with yellow and gray. I never would have thought to add green as the third color. Love it.

  11. Oh wow! I love the green and yellow together! I wouldn’t have pictured them like that with the grey background either. Great job! It’s funny, my high school colors were blue and yellow and that’s a combo I typically avoid. 🙂

  15. I love yellow and gray and the pop of green is really pretty. I love how you turned the ribbon into a banner. I’m still hoarding some of those KI Memories calendar die cuts.
