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!
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!
