Be You

Happy Monday! :) I came across a fairly new challenge blog called Color Me Scrappy. It seems pretty fun  so I gave it a try.

Before I share the the beautiful color palette, I will share my layout for challenge #3:
(sorry for the dark image)
cs: Recollections
pp: Pink Paislee, MME, October Afternoon, Recollections
stickers: Martha Stewart
twine: The Twinery
pearls: Michaels
mist: Maya Mist

These are colors that I normally do not use, so it was a pretty big challenge for me. I pulled out everything I could find with these colors and then just dug in. I wanted to use at least a little of every color, yet keep my layout bright and cheerful ad happy. Overall I am pleased with how it turned out, although I think the kite twine along the side is a bit too much, but I commited to it as soon as I glued it down.

Here is the color palette:

I am looking forward to the next challenge!
