It's been awhile since I have played along with a color challenge, but this month alone I've been inspired by two. Creating the below layout all began when I was prompted by the challenge at Scrap Our Stash to use a monochromatic color scheme, and then when I saw Palette #169 at The Color Room I knew that I needed to go for the green!
But then my dilemma began, as I wasn't sure what photo(s) to use. It's a thing with me having my product color coordinate with my photos, and most of my scrapbooking is of my kids. Santiago's favorite color is blue and Paolina's is pink, so guess what colors most of their clothes are? I was definitely beginning to think that I should just give up on that lovely green palette. That's when I came across one of the current challenges at Child's Play...Peter Pan. And it all fell into place at that point because Paolina dressed up as Tinker Bell for Halloween in 2012 and I had yet to scrap the photos.
Another aspect of the challenge at Scrap Our Stash was to add five or more different premade/prepackaged embellishments. I used doilies, enamel dots, a chipboard star, a button and a Prima beaded flower center. I also used two asterisks from the Thickers pack used for the titlework.
I love that three separate challenges worked together to really spark my creativity for this page. Thanks for looking!
