Ay, caramba!  Arielle’s color challenge today for the ColourQ really had me going!  What do you think:


A gorgeous inspiration photo!  But Concord Crush  scares me!  But I persevered,  and I thought I would take my little “jewel” of a DGD and make a 6x6 scrapbook page, since her mommy likes to dress her in purple:

I am scrapbook-challenged, as you know, and this little page took a lot longer than it should have!  Anyway, there are lots of little embellishments:




See the little raggedy edge of the journaling piece?  That’s the top edge of a piece of DP torn from its binding.  I fished it out of the trash---shameful, but that little edge was so cute, I couldn’t resist!  Not much stamping, mostly doodads… if I would just do some more to add to my scrapbook! 


Take a scoot on over to the CQC blog to see what the others have come up with.  We’d love to see your take on these fabulous colors!  (If you have any questions about anything used here, just shoot me an email…..I am feeling too lazy to write it all down!!!)

Gorgeous color combo! I really like how you put t all togethr on your scrapbook page, too. Scrapbook challenged? Ha! Not you! I'm sure you had great inspiration from that cutie-patootie in the photo! :) Love that little torn edge that was "rescued" from the vertical file, too. Great touch! :)

You only THINK you're scrapbook challenged my friend! This page is fabulous!! I love that raggedy edge you added, who knew it would look so good? If I had all of these colors, I'd play along.......I LOVE this combo! Lil Cass looks so pretty in purple :)

With all the love that little angel gets, it's no wonder why there's such a huge smile on that sweet face.

Beautiful layout, LeAnne! You don't look "challenged" - the details and colors are perfect. And yep, I would have fished in the trash for that scrap, too... it's a sickness, I guess, LOL!
