Color Me Scrappy!

The newest Color Me Scrappy Challenge is ready to go on their blog today!

It's a different, but very cool color scheme as follows:

And the "twist" this week is to use shells or pearls on your page.

Don't forget!!  Everyone who participates, gets placed in a raffle and has a chance to win an awesome prize.  

is their sponsor this month!!

At first glance, the colors may seem kind of difficult to scrap - I know I thought so.  But if you think about it, it is just a monochromatic color scheme, and after starting, I really loved working with these colors!

I used a photo that I took of Anne when she and I went to Jacobsburg Park (In Nazareth, PA) this past fall.  I was trying to get a sun-flare or silhouette photo as part of the photography class that I was taking.

Here are some of the photos I took that day:

My favorite:

And my layout for the challenge:

I used lyrics from the song "Unwritten" for my journaling because I am giving this page to Anne!

"No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
to the years where you book begins
The rest is still unwritten . . . . ."
~~Natasha Bedingfield~~

Great words to live by, don't you think?   . . . and the colors were easy and fun to work with!!  So head on over to Color Me Scrappy and give it a try!
