May 15th Challenges

It's the 15th of MAy which means it's time for some new challenges!  First up is for About a Boy. The challenge is to create a layout using only white and ONE other color. I am not ashamed to admit that this was a formidable task for me. I love lots of color so it was difficult for me to limit my choices to a single one besides white. But I will also admit that I am very pleased with the end result. It certainly makes the photo pop!

I used a sketch from Scrap Friends

And created this page...
I used photos of Santiago when he was 4 months old. I always loved getting close-up shots of him...I mean check out those big brown eyes! Wish he would stop moving long enough these days to get photos like this still...

Anyhow, I encourage you to head over to the About a Boy blog to see what the rest of our Design Team created. I am sure their layouts will inspire you to try this challenge as well!

There's also another new challenge at Sketches With Color. If you have been following then you know that for the month of May the color aspect of our challenges has been changed up a bit. You are to choose THREE colors from the following 14 colors. I chose Lemon Zest, Grayed Jade and African Violet.
And for our second challenge this month you are to use the following sketch:

I decided to rotate the sketch and create a card to give to my mom for Mother's Day.

Once again, it was super cool to see how much variety there was in our Design Team's layouts simply because they were free to choose which three colors they used. Hope you will join in as well!
