Color Me Beautiful #7 and a scrappy page
It's Friday!!! Yippee!!! We have survived another week and it's time for a new challenge at Color Me Beautiful. I absolutely loved these colors as soon as I saw them and the wheels started turning when I saw this wonderful blue boat!!
Doesn't that picture just make you want to pack a picnic and set off to your own little private island?!
I have always been something of a 'water baby' and love spending time anywhere near the water. The colors for this week's challenge felt so aquatic and I really wanted to stay with the watery inspiration. I also have a ton of pictures begging to be scrapped and after a quick look through the box, I found pictures from a pool party we attended this summer. BINGO!! My next problem was trying to fit 5 fun filled photos onto one page... I hunted through some old Page Maps sketches and found one with hinges on the bottom picture. So rather than making the hinges simply decorative, I made a little mini album to house the extra pictures. This also gave me a perfect place for journaling too!
I managed to use all of the colors in the challenge and found that I really love these colors together! I even managed to find some old alphabet stickers in my stash that fit the theme and used them for my title.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend, find some time to be crafty, and maybe even accept our color challenge and link up your fabulous creation! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
