Some people find purple a difficult colour to scrap and avoid it like the plague. Personally, purple is one of my favourite colours and so I don't mind working with it. However, I can't say the same for red. I find it a difficult colour to scrap, probably as it's not a colour I'm drawn to. I like it, but I guess I just don't have a red personality (meaning vivacious, bold and energetic). So the #9 Colour Challenge at ScrapFriends took me out of my comfort zone a little with its burst of red amongst the softness of the rest of the palette. Even with the red, or perhaps because of it, I loved this palette. Here it is:

My children are generally really good with each other and play constantly together. Being close in age possibly helps this. However, sometimes there are days when I feel overwhelmed, not necessarily by their behaviour, but by sole parenthood. When I capture moments like this, it reminds me that everything I do and am doing is worthwhile. It gives me strength.
Thanks for coming by!
