Color Me Scrappy: Challenge 2

Well I had so much fun with the Color Me Scrappy inaugural challenge I couldn't wait to see what they came up with for challenge #2!  This was the colour scheme (BTW - I'm Canadian and we spell "Color" with a "u" but the blog uses the American spelling so forgive me if it looks like I don't know how to spell!):

"Color Me Scrappy: Challenge 2 Color Scheme"

I have to confess I was a little stumped.  I have an almost 3-year old little girl so most of the papers and embellishments I have are pretty girly!  But I did manage to sneak a trip to Michael's in and picked up a couple of papers that I think worked pretty good!

Here's what I came up with:


And here are a couple of close-ups (I know I love to see close-ups on other people's blogs so I'm trying to do it as much as possible here!).

"Digital Ali Edwards Banner from Designer Digitals - modified to say what I wanted it to"
I added the digital banner to each photo before printing them.  Designer Digitals is a great resource for things like small additions to photos (ie. brushes, etc) as well as for journal spots that you can then just print out.

"Button & Brads"

"The quote is an English proverb that says 'A man without a moustache is like tea without sugar'- I disagree but that's just my opinion! :)"

Just some ribbon and some buttons to fill in some dead space and a quote to act as a bit of a sub-title.

Anyway hope you enjoyed!  If you're feeling like you need a little inspiration to get the creative mojo flowwing why not check out Color Me Scrappy and play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
